Less-than-ideal conditions in your home are often apparent to the eye or nose. However, the extent of the condition can be known only through scientific testing with diagnostic equipment. Also, some important conditions, such as high carbon monoxide levels, are undetectable by our senses and require measuring with a combustion analyzer.
Energy Efficiency NOW offers the benefits of diagnostic testing to both homeowners and builders, including ...
For homeowners, diagnostic testing provides the scientific basis to optimize the energy efficiency, durability, comfort, and safety of your home. Without testing, the route to optimization is guesswork.
For builders, testing confirms the quality of your work. It also gives you control of the performance of subcontractors.
For realtors, diagnostic testing supports energy efficiency claims by sellers - or uncovers hidden issues for buyers.
"Jon, your expertise, professionalism, and patience ultimately produced the results I wanted from my recently [foam insulation] sprayed attic. I am asked on a regular basis how the system is working. I can say that my monthly reduction in energy usage is about $160.00. Before the attic was sprayed, my monthly bill was approximately $250.00 each month, after the process it is about $90.00. We keep the temperature at 73 degrees in the summer. The MOST important part of the process was the blower door testing you did before and after the insulation job. Without your expertise and knowledge, the results could have been catastrophic, as the attic would have allowed in too much outside air. The advice I offer to all who have an interest is, first do it. Second, have Energy Efficiency NOW provide
the blower door testing. I am amazed at the results. Thank you, it was a pleasure working with you."
