Energy Audits

With rising energy bills, more and more people are realizing that the best way to improve their existing home is to have a BPE, Inc. technician perform an energy audit. This comprehensive audit examines the entire building—top to bottom using the ”Whole House” approach to save energy, increase health and safety, and improve comfort. BPE offers energy audits on both residential and commercial buildings.

Components of an energy audit can include any or all of the following:

  • Air infiltration – blower door test
  • Duct Leakage – duct testing
  • Gas leaks – combustible gas leak detection –(found in over 70% of homes tested!)
  • Moisture Issues – a visual inspection – outside, inside – top to bottom
  • Infrared Diagnostics – thermal camera used to look for hidden problems
  • Combustion Safety – BPI combustion safety testing including worst case depressurization tests
  • Base Load Inventory – a serious look at the low hanging fruit available to save energy.
  • Retrofit strategies
  • Contractor Referrals
  • Contractor Test Outs
Below is an example of what one of our energy audits looks like.
