Facts & Tips
ENERGY AUDITS UNLIMITED will
conduct a thorough examination of your home, using techniques
based on building science. Employing industry-accepted tools
such as the
Minneapolis Blower Door, and
Thermographic Inspections, we
will show you where your home is wasting energy. The information
gathered through the Energy Audit is then used to construct a
computer model snapshot of your home at the time of the audit
and then suggests remedial measures for your home, eliminating
the guesswork around repairs and improvements.
After you review this report with us, we then work with you to
find qualified, experienced and trusted weatherization crews.
Minneapolis Blower Door is
used to depressurize the building and exaggerate the paths where
energy is wasted. When used in conjunction with the IR camera
pictured below, the results can be startling. The blower door is
the single most important tool that the auditor will use. Even
if there are no other diagnostic tools available, the blower
door is essential to conduct a science-based evaluation of the
leakiness of the building.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera
– Although not completely essential, the IR camera presents a
striking visual addition to the data gathered by the blower
door. Invisible problems, hidden by the structure, such as
water leaks, live knob and tube wiring, missing or poorly
installed insulation, and infiltration paths are revealed with
the IR camera.
