Deep Home Energy Audit
Before making ANY major energy investment, utilities, government agencies and building science professionals all recommend a careful, deep home energy audit considering the entire home as an integrated system.
A home energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, is the first step to assess 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.

As one of JEA's preferred vendors, we are not your typical HVAC company. We are one of the few companies in town who not only provide you with recommendations and solutions to your home energy needs...we also do the WORK in making over your home, office, or light commercial building.
- Analyzes 1 year's energy bill
- Examines ALL of the home's energy centers:
- Heating and cooling
- Hot water
- Media (Computers and Entertainment)
- Pool / spa pump
- Pool / spa heating
- outdoor water features and irrigation
- Sauna or steam room
- Outbuildings sharing electric services
- Miscellaneous significant loads
1) Single Point Blower Door Test
($375 / hour to find air leakage) (Blower Door/Smoke Assisted Spray Foam Testing- $375 / hour onsite for a team of 2 techs)
For whole house air leakage / infiltration. This sheds light on the building's pressure envelope – its ability to keep outdoor heat and humidity outside.
2) Load Calculation
($240 for each system)
A room-by-room / total home heating and cooling load calculation yields the system tonnage and airflows needed to properly heat, cool, and dehumidify every room and the entire home.
3) HVAC System Airflow Test
all supply registers ($375 for each system)
A room-by-room airflow test – measures HVAC airflow from each supply register or grill. Most homes have at least one room that is uncomfortable owing to improper airflow – too hot, too cold or both.
4) Duct leakage test
($225 for each system)
Just as the blower door tests the home's leakage to outside, a duct leakage test measures and calculates the amount and cost of air lost from the duct.

No one has ever saved a dime in energy via a home energy audit. The audit data provides decision support and reasonably accurate return-on-investment (ROI) times for various retrofit investments based on sound building science, precise local energy costs and very specific measurements and calculations performed on YOUR home.
