Whole Home Assessment
BPI Accredited Contractor.
High energy bills, uneven temperatures from room-to-room, drafts, moisture, mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, ice dams, pest infestations, seemingly uncontrollable humidity levels and even premature deterioration of building materials can all be the result of a breakdown in the relationship between the systems in your house – the building envelope (shell), heating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and you, the occupants.
If one system has a problem, it impacts the other systems’ ability to function properly. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can actually make the problem worse or create new problems. The process of elimination approach just causes frustration as you try solution after solution – investing more time, money and energy – without resolution.
Let one of our trained and certified professionals perform a whole home assessment for you today, taking the first step in making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Here’s how it works
Most projects start with an interview with you, the homeowner, to find out what symptoms you’ve noticed and what, if anything, you’ve tried to fix those symptoms. An evaluation of your energy bills provides clues to areas that need improvement.
Next, your Egg Energy Systems certified professional will conduct a thorough walk-through – both indoors and out. We may use an infrared camera to get a visual on temperature differences in different areas, conduct a blower door test to depressurize the house and assess air leakage levels through the building envelope, and test for leakage in the duct work of forced-air HVAC systems. We will also perform other function and safety tests on HVAC equipment, including carbon monoxide levels and combustion appliance back-draft testing.
At the end of the comprehensive whole-home assessment, your Egg Energy Systems certified professional will provide you with a our view of the situation based on our findings. We will be able to help you prioritize repairs in order so you can solve the biggest problems without making smaller problems worse.
Once the improvement work is completed, your Egg Energy Systems certified professional will conduct a second whole-home assessment that follows all the same steps as the first. This is to measure the performance levels of the work that was installed and also to check for any health and safety issues. BPI accredited contracting companies must participate in their quality assurance program, so you know you’ll get high-quality work done right.
