Getting Your Home Energy Assessment Once you've scheduled your assessment, a Participating Contractor will come to your home and use diagnostic equipment to perform a comprehensive evaluation. This helps to determine your home’s energy use, and how a combination of improvements can work together to increase home comfort, lower energy consumption and energy costs. This process may include: Testing your home for air leakage, which contributes to higher energy costs. Camera tests using infrared images to assess your home's insulation, which can directly affect comfort and energy efficiency performance. Safety testing to detect carbon monoxide and natural gas leaks. Checking for proper ventilation, which is critical to reducing indoor air pollutants and preventing moisture and mold growth in your home. The following energy-saving items may be installed with your permission, at no additional cost, to help you start saving energy immediately: ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs Faucet aerators Efficient-flow showerheads (fixed mount or handheld) Water heater pipe wrap(s) Smart power strips ShowerStart® showerhead adapters Following your assessment, you'll receive a detailed report with recommended improvements, potential energy savings and available rebates for eligible measures to make your home more energy efficient.
