Energy Audit

An energy audit is an inspection and analysis of energy use and flows for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output.

This can be accomplished by improving energy efficiency, increasing the use of renewable energy sources, or by a combination of both. An energy audit is the first step in identifying opportunities to reduce energy expense and carbon footprints.

The goal of an energy audit is to make sure the building or process is as energy efficient as possible. An energy audit will identify areas of excessive energy use and potential cost savings. The audit can also provide information to help prioritize energy efficiency investments.

An energy audit is a service that evaluates how a home or business uses energy and identifies areas where energy use can be improved. Services can include evaluating existing lighting systems, HVAC systems, appliances, and making recommendations for energy efficiency improvements.

It can also include recommendations for energy-saving technologies such as solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal systems. The purpose of an energy audit is to identify ways to reduce energy use, improve energy efficiency, and save money on energy costs.

An audit can also provide a baseline for tracking energy use and efficiency over time. The audit results can be used to develop an energy efficiency plan, which could include energy-saving strategies, equipment upgrades, and renewable energy installations.

In addition to evaluating existing systems and making recommendations, energy auditors may also perform energy-saving tests such as blower door tests, duct leakage tests, and infrared imaging. These tests can help identify air leakage, insulation deficiencies, and other potential sources of energy loss.
