Whole-Home Energy Audit
A home energy audit helps you optimize energy efficiency and indoor comfort.
Our whole-home energy assessment combines comprehensive comfort and efficiency analyses with an action-ready prescription plan - all based on principles of building science.
We help you prioritize changes that will make your home more energy efficient. The result? Optimal comfort and reduced energy consumption.
Step 1: Provide an energy assessment and audit
Step 2: Create a plan for your home
A home energy audit begins with an all-out "doctor's physical" on your Atlanta area home. Our team models energy consumption based on your utility bills and analyzes air leakage, insulation levels, and HVAC performance. This isn't just any old energy assessment - it's far more comprehensive. Here's what's included:
- Blower door test to discover how often the air in your home replaces itself
- Flow-hood test to measure the airflow distributed by your ductwork (when required)
- Thermal test to locate air leaks and inadequate insulation
- Building airflow standard test to measure ventilation in your home
- Combustion safety testing to find existing or potential carbon monoxide hazards
After taking those measurements, we report our findings in a comprehensive prescription plan. The plan draws on your home energy inspection results and provides a prioritized list of modifications for improved comfort and energy efficiency. Recommendations might include:
- Sealing large air leaks to save energy and improve comfort
- Taking steps to improve conditions in your crawlspace
- HVAC modifications that reduce energy consumption
- Adding insulation where it's missing or failing
- Upgrading air filtration to improve indoor air quality
I have had nothing but great experiences with PV Heating and Air. They have been servicing my home since 2007 and have always gone above and beyond my expectations
We highly recommend PV to anyone seeking a first-class HVAC and home environment service. They put customers first.
Do you need a home energy assessment?
Many homes fail to use energy as efficiently as they should. Here are some signs you might benefit from a home energy assessment:
- Sky high electric and gas bills
- HVAC systems that struggle to satisfy your thermostat setting
- Failing or missing attic and crawlspace insulation
- Older homes built before modern building codes existed
- You're eager to reduce your consumption and conserve energy
If one or more of those apply to you, a home energy assessment could help you save energy, improve comfort, and pay less for gas and electricity.
When you choose PV for your home energy audit, you’re getting building science experts.
As a Building Performance Institute (BPI)-certified home performance contractor, our team knows how to identify your biggest home energy problems and solve them for good.
In other words, we're not here to rehash the "wisdom" of caulking around windows and doors. We use powerful home energy audit tools to measure how well your home performs. Then we make it perform better.
When it comes to comfort and efficiency, home performance matters just as much as HVAC performance.
Our home energy inspection gets to the root of your energy consumption and comfort issues. In many cases, chronic indoor discomfort is not the fault of your AC or furnace. It's the result of conditions in your home that prevent your HVAC system from delivering optimal performance.
Insulation, air leaks, and attic or crawlspace conditions contribute to energy efficiency problems.
Our team identifies them and shows you what's needed to fix them. Why do we do this work? Because we're committed to helping make your home a healthier, more comfortable, more energy efficient place to live.
