A home energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment or inspection, is the first step in assessing how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time and increase the comfort level in the home substantially. When considering having an energy assessment you should be sure to hire a certified professional in the field of energy analysis. A BPI trained professional is educated in the correct steps necessary to evaluate and the steps needed to correct deficiencies in the home. When you decide to hire a professional assessor, look for a building analyst certification (from BPI). This certification simply means you have a professional, certified home inspection company doing your assessment and you will get the correct information you will need to improve your home.
