Because we measure our success by your satisfaction - we get the job done right the first time.
ENERGY STAR Energy Audit Components
In addition to basic home Real Estate Inspection:
Just look at what we measure within your home or office envelope for energy savings/efficiency:
- HVAC compliance
- Heat loss/gain,
- Cooling loss to unconditioned space,
Invisible intrusion (weatherization potential),
Gaps and leaks into walls and attic,
Evaluate geo-position influence,
Outdoor plant and environmental contributions.
Past Utility bill analysis
We run a computerized model of your home thru the Energy Pro® software and show you what savings you may expect when performing sequential energy efficiency upgrades.
We plan out the most economical order in which these upgrades may be made We do this by creating a spreadsheet with cost estimates and lists of authorized ENERGY STAR contractors who may bid on your projects.
We will also consult with you in auditing your construction upgrades and negotiate contracts if you wish.
Our Energy Pro® software will also provide you with tax credit benefits, direct rebates information, Government grants, utility (low interest) lending institutions, and 'Green Mortgage' banks who can write loans and subsidized loan packages.
The Federal Government is readying special energy reduction financing thru the Department of Energy that will be available to most homeowners whose monthly energy savings are greater than their costs. Breathe-Rite specifically measures this cost/benefit ratio. In many cases you may expect rebates and tax incentives totaling up to 50% of the costs. With a subsidized loan, you may even be able to finance the remainder for little or no interest and amortize the loan over 10-20 years without qualification documents. ENERGY STAR Home Audit
