|How do I choose a home energy contractor?|
During a professional energy assessment, a certified contractor analyzes your energy bills, completes visual, health and safety inspections, and may use special equipment — such as a blower door and an infrared camera — to detect sources of energy loss. Based on this information, an energy assessment will provide you with a comprehensive home energy report that shows which energy efficiency upgrades are best for your home and your potential energy savings.
A home energy assessment should be performed by a contractor who is a recognized Building Performance Institute (BPI) contractor. These contractors are specially trained and experienced in the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to provide you with an unparalleled, comprehensive analysis of your home’s energy efficiency.
