If the help of these instruments, he can find hidden imperfect conditions in your ductwork, then offer you reasonable upgrades for saving energy.

Your Energy Saving Advisor will use an air flow hood instrument to measure precisely how much conditioned air is getting to each room (provided the supply vents are accessible). If airflow is inadequate, he’ll advise you that there is energy saving upgrades that will address these problems

Basically the blower door sucks the air out of the house and sees where outside air is rushing in to replace it. Most homes have allot of leaks in the structure allowing outside dirty, un tempered air to enter the home, while some homes are too tight not allowing the home breathe at all causing moisture problems in walls, attics and crawl spaces.

8. Analyzing the Insulation Value in Your Crawlspace
A home’s un-insulated – or poorly insulated crawlspace can account for up to half of its total heat loss in an otherwise sealed, well-insulated home. That is why it’s important to have your home’s less-used, often unconsidered, areas carefully assessed to determine their exact impact on your family’s indoor comfort and home energy expenses. Chances are you will be greatly surprised by how much energy and money your crawlspace is costing you each month.
9. Analyzing the Insulation Value in Your Attic
With the help of a Blower Door and Infrared Thermography camera he can pinpoint areas of weakness in your home insulation. We will check your insulation level to help you determine the effectiveness of your insulation and whether more insulation will provide a payback for you. The amount on insulation in your attic affects how hard your heating and cooling system needs to work to heat and cool your home properly. EPA estimates that homeowners can typically save up to 20% of heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% of total energy costs) by adding insulation in attics, floors over crawl spaces.
