Your Home Assessment

Your BPI-certified contractor uses the latest building science to analyze your home. Your assessment may include some or all of the following:

  • A blower door test that forces air into your home, revealing air leaks in walls, ceilings, windows, doors and floors.
  • An infrared camera test that peers behind your walls to find air and insulation leaks.
  • A duct pressure test to identify leaks in your heating and cooling duct system.
  • A combustion appliances test to detect carbon monoxide or natural gas leaks and to measure efficiency of heating equipment.
The results of your home assessment will help the contractor determine which upgrades will improve your home's comfort and save you the most.

Upgrades You Can Expect

Every home is different, and your suggested upgrades will be custom to you. But here are some recommendations that are frequently made after a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR assessment:

  • Seal air leaks
  • Add insulation
  • Improve heating and cooling systems
  • Repair ductwork
  • Upgrade lighting, appliances and water heating equipment
Improvements in these areas can lead to energy savings and improved comfort for you and your family. You are also likely to be eligible for rebates for making these upgrades. Learn more about the available rebates below.
