Home Performance / Energy Audit Pricing & Packages
Just like every individual or home is different we generally try to tailor our testing & reporting to exactly what you need instead of locking you into one specific type of audit. With that said, here are two of our most popular home performance / energy audit packages for existing homes along with the customization option.
Comprehensive Diagnostic Energy Audit………..…… $575
This is our most popular audit, as it not only includes the Home Energy & Maintenance Assessment (below), but also includes using Infrared with the Blower Door (to see how leaky is your house & where) and the Duct Pressure Test (how leaky are your ducts).
Home Energy, Comfort & Maintenance Assessment…… $285
This 2 hour walk through assessment is the designed to identify obvious energy loss and maintenance issues. This includes a visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the house, the basement, crawlspace, and attic. We will look at the shape & condition of your major appliances, heating and cooling equipment, check for gas leaks, check for CO, and other health and safety issues.
The Customized Consultation:
In many cases a full blown home performance / energy audit or survey may not be what you need, while a simple walk through assessment may not provide you with enough information. Maybe you are planning a renovation & would like to talk your options or it has already started & you would like to verify that the work is being done properly. With just a simple call or email we will gladly customize a plan of action to meet your specific needs.
Just like we will tailor your home performance evaluation based on your needs, we don’t believe in canned reports with generic wording that doesn’t apply. Our reports are based on you, your home, the results, and what needs to be done. Worried about a bunch of techno babble or meaningless numbers, we try to limit that as much as possible & provide links to many of our articles here on the HTRC for further information. For example;
- How can one eliminate or minimize Ice Dams?
- How to properly vent a bathroom exhaust fan
- What does ACH or ACH50 mean & why do I care
- What else can I do to save money on my cooling or heating costs?
We gladly serve many of the western suburbs in DuPage, Kane, Kendall, & Will counties like; Naperville, Plainfield, Aurora, Batavia, Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Joliet, Oswego, St. Charles, Wheaton, & Oswego to name a few. If you do not see your location listed please feel free to call us. Even if you are outside our normal service area we will gladly travel to most locations though additional travel charges may apply.
