A Tin Man's Home Energy Audits ($300)
Every Tin Man energy audit is conducted by an energy consultant who is certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) as a Building Analyst and Building Envelope professional and has completed RESNET training.
We evaluate your home from the outside in, checking each room’s efficiency and safety. We'll target your home’s problem areas and develop solutions to reduce its energy consumption.
Every Tin Man energy consultant performs a complete interior inspection from your dirt floor crawl-space to the tightest areas of your attic. We'll go to areas of your home that you may have never seen, but may be the cause of asthma, allergies and cold or hot rooms throughout your home. Tin Man interior inspections evaluate lighting and your existing household appliances to see how we can improve the efficiency of your home with our comprehensive home energy audit.
The exterior inspection of your home includes evaluating the general condition and construction and checks for any safety issues that may exist. We will look at the overall condition of the exterior components of the home.
Imagine having a window in your house that never closes. By conducting the blower door test, we measure your home’s air leaks and determine the size of this “window”. We calculate the Building Airflow Standard for the size of your home and occupancy rate, and compare that to what the actual blower door results tell us in Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM). We can tell you how much energy you are wasting due to excess air-flow, and what our limit is for making your home air tight while maintaining healthy air exchange.
BLOWER DOOR TEST
With Infrared thermal-imaging cameras, our energy consultants can graphically display and photograph the insulation levels and cold or hot spots within your walls, ceilings and floors without creating any holes or removing any sheet rock. You will be amazed when you see a vivid image of where you are missing insulation and what that does for heat loss in the winter or heat gain in the summer.
