Ductwork leakage test---According to the department of energy, “The typical duct system loses 25% to 40% of the energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump or air conditioner.”
Are you throwing away 25 cents to 40 cents out of every utility dollar?
Find out if you are, and how to stop it.
Home air leakage test ---Does your family get enough fresh air? All houses have some air leakage. Most leak too much. Symptoms of excessive leakage include uneven temperatures throughout the house, wasted energy, excessive dust, cold drafts, dry air in winter, and clammy air in summer. On the other hand, some homes are too airtight and may have unhealthy indoor air.
To measure a home’s air tightness, Department of Energy scientists at Princeton University invented the computerized Infiltrometer blower door instrument. It is often featured in magazines and on television, including National Geographic, Better Homes and Gardens, Popular Science, and This Old House. The test will determine how leaky your entire home is, and where improvements can be made.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera---Do a walk through with the camera and read temperatures and locate cold spots or hot spots in your home’s walls, ceiling, electrical receptacles, etc. This walk through will help you locate areas with large energy losses.
Heating & Cooling room by room load calculations—These calculations give you a room by room heat loss, heat gain and required air flow quantity to each room. An air flow hood is then used to determine actual air flow to each room and this can be compared to required air flow.
