Energy Auditing & Building Performance Diagnostic Services
Blower Door Testing Determines air infiltration rates discovering problem areas. Infiltration is typically a large part of the energy loss in buildings.
Envelope Thermal Imaging Identifies the quality and extent of insulation. Discover leakages, thermal bypass and thermal bridging issues.
Mechanical Equipment & Delivery Efficiency Analysis Determines opportunities for energy savings in the HVAC systems.
Air Duct Pressure Testing Identify air delivery system leakage, especially in unconditioned spaces.
Lighting Efficiency Analysis Determine where inefficiencies are in lighting fixtures and controls.
Envelope Review for Thermal & Moisture Deficiencies Provide a full survey of the shell/envelope components outlining any efficiency and durability issues.
Building Performance Analysis & Improvement Planning
Building Performance Modeling Establish an existing conditions baseline for the building. Determine the energy and cost benefits for various prescribed conservation measures.
Outline Energy Conservation Measures (ECM's) Develop specific solutions to all energy efficiency problems. These will be presented in biddable scopes of work.
Return on Investment Calculations Illustrate the financial benefits of the various defined energy conservation measures.
Development of Deferred Maintenance & Facility Improvement Plan Compile a complete list and prioritized schedule for an integrated building maintenance plan.
Funding Strategy Assistance Provide a comprehensive list of Grant programs, incentive and rebate programs available, as well as a list of low interest energy loan programs. The published report will provide the necessary background information for any applications.
