Home Energy Audits

A trained auditor will come to your home to conduct one of two types of energy audits to determine the efficiency of your home.  The information he gathers from the audit will help him determine where you are spending your energy dollars and will help him point out hidden inefficiencies.  He will then make practical, useful suggestions to help you use electricity more efficiently and save money on your monthly electric bill.

The Blower Door audit includes:

  • A blower door and infrared camera test locating places of air leakage and energy loss.
  • Inspecting rim joists, windows, doors, recessed lighting, electrical outlets and switches for air leaks.
  • Documenting all air leaks for sealing.
  • Checking the heating system filter.
  • Visually inspecting the heating and air conditioning duct work for air leaks, if accessible.
  • Checking the temperature setting on the water heater.
  • Inspecting attic insulation and determining if any additional insulation is needed.

  • Providing an energy weatherization kit consisting of a water heater wrap, hot water pipe wrap, three CFL bulbs, insulation kits for electrical outlets and wall switches, a low-flow shower head, a night light, caulk and door sweep/weather seals. 

We partner with Associated Electric Cooperative, our wholesale power supplier, to provide energy weatherization kits when we perform this audit.  Additionally, a rebate of up to 50-percent of the cost (up to a maximum of $500) is available to members taking the corrective actions noted by our auditor at the conclusion of the audit.  The blower door audit has a value of over $400, but we charge only $100 to have the audit performed.  The blower door audit is not available if you have natural gas or propane in your home.
