Although doctors have their specialties, they all still have an understanding of how the entire body works and the ties between one system and another. Most contractors, however, only have a distinct area of expertise and don’t fully understand how the whole home works together. This is why if you’re planning major upgrades to your home or simply need to figure out why your bills are so high or why it’s so cold inside during the winter, you need to turn to a building science expert.

A home performance or building science specialist has training and expertise in the whole-house approach that takes a comprehensive overview of how your home works to come up with effective solutions. A whole-home approach is the only way you’ll be able to increase energy efficiency, lower your energy bills, improve comfort, and enjoy healthier indoor air quality.

A Whole-Home Approach Starts with an Energy Audit

Just like a doctor conducts an examination or check-up to see what’s going on, a building science professional must conduct a thorough energy audit of your home in order to gain an understanding of where certain issues are stemming from.

During an energy audit, your home will be assessed through a visual inspection, and tested via a blower door and thermal imaging. All of these measures will provide clear insight into where problems such as discomfort, drafts, moisture problems, and high energy bills are starting.

Whole-Home Solutions for Energy Efficiency, Comfort & Health

Once the results of your energy audit are analyzed, a home performance specialist will be able to present you with various solutions that will resolve issues with inefficiency, discomfort, and poor indoor air quality. Depending on what your unique energy audit results show, some of the proposed recommendations may include:
