The first step in diagnosing your home’s efficiency is an energy audit conducted by the BPI certified professionals at York Home Performance. Our home energy audit uses specialized equipment, modeling software and the experienced eyes of an expert energy auditor to pinpoint where your home can save energy.

Does My Home Need an Energy Audit?

Most often we receive calls from customers with specific complaints about their homes. These might include:

  • Rooms that are too hot or too cold

  • Increasing energy bills not linked to fuel costs

  • Drafty windows or rooms

  • Musty odors or mold

  • Poorly functioning windows

If your home has any of these symptoms, an energy audit can identify the root causes, remedies and potential energy savings when you improve your home’s performance.

What Happens During an Energy Audit?

During your energy audit appointment, the York Home Performance energy auditor will start by visually inspecting the exterior and interior of your home—from foundation to attic and all the exterior walls that make up your homes “envelope.” We’ll be paying attention to any obvious gaps in the envelope, existing insulation in the attic, as well as listening carefully to your insights on specific problems and questions. Then we’ll perform diagnostic and safety tests using specialized equipment, including:

Energy Audit Analysis & Recommendations

Once these tests have been completed, we’ll analyze this data using specialized energy efficiency modeling software. The results will be compiled into a useful report on your home’s specific issues, as well as a prioritized list of improvements. We’ll help you determine which improvements will give you the best results for your investment.

Identifying Money-Saving Rebate Programs

York Home Performance participates as an approved contractor in your local utility’s energy efficiency rebate program. These programs offer rebates for specific energy efficiency improvements and will even cover the cost of your energy audit. We’ll handle all the paperwork and ensure you receive the rebate you deserve!
