What's A Home Energy Audit?

A home energy audit, when conducted by Four Star Home Performance professionals, is a service using state of the art equipment that will determine the energy consumption, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality of your home.

Many homes today suffer from energy performance problems:
  • A drafty uncomfortable home will waste far more energy than it should, resulting in high heating and cooling bills.

  • Asthma and allergy symptoms can be aggravated by poor filtration and air circulation.

  • Even a few leaky ducts can reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems by 20% or more, not to mention the compromise in safety from pollutants and chemicals being circulated through your home.
Four Star Home Performance uses a whole-home comprehensive approach during our energy audits to ensure you'll get the most precise and informative report of the energy efficiency for your entire home.

You'll be able to make informed decisions on what repairs, if any, you'll need to do, what steps you can take that will have the most impact on your home's comfort and safety, and which improvments will bring you the most return on your money.

How Does It Work?

Full Energy AuditA Four Star Energy Audit will begin with an interview with you to find out what symptoms you’ve noticed and what, if anything, you’ve tried to fix those symptoms. An evaluation of your energy bills provides clues to areas that need improvement.

Next, your BPI certified professional will conduct a thorough walk-through – both indoors and out. The technician will use an infrared camera to get a visual on temperature differences in different areas, conduct a blower door test to depressurize the house and assess air leakage levels through the building envelope, and test for leakage in the duct work of forced-air HVAC systems. They will also perform other function and safety tests on HVAC equipment, including carbon monoxide levels and combustion appliance back-draft testing.

At the end of the comprehensive whole-home assessment, your home performance contractor will provide you with a scientific, objective report. They’ll be able to help you prioritize repairs in order – from must-do to nice-to-do – so you can solve the biggest problems without making smaller problems worse. They should also be able to guide you regarding which fixes are suitable for your particular do-it-yourself (DIY) skill level, and which will require expert help – either from the BPI accredited contracting company who performed the assessment or from another equally qualified, trained source.

Once the improvement work is completed, your BPI contractor will discuss your options for a secondary follow-up assessment to make sure that all the corrections work, and the desired performance levels have been achieved. The project is only considered complete when you agree that the job has been done right.
