Conserving energy and saving money makes sense for homeowners and for the environment. An energy efficient home is more comfortable, cost-effective, durable and has a higher resale value. It also helps protect the environment. Carson Dunlop’s Certified Energy Advisors can show you how you can save money while saving the planet.

An energy audit will give you a detailed outline of your energy use that will include:

  • A basement-to-attic assessment of your home’s insulation, heating and cooling systems, appliances, and other energy uses.
  • A “blower door” test to detect air leaks and drafts.
  • A personalized Energy Efficient Evaluation Report with an energy rating and practical recommendations for improvement. The report shows how much energy you can save by making improvements, and how much your energy rating will improve. See a sample home energy audit report.

About the Report

The report has several sections including:

  • Your house EnerGuide Rating Score
  • Recommended actions to improve energy efficiency including the potential improvement in the EnerGuide Rating
  • Energy consumption/loss profile
  • Energy saving tips
  • Related resources for additional information

What Our Clients Say

  • The inspector was very thorough and took the time to explain everything; the value-added extras such as the report on the school district, drug house check, and recalled appliance checks were invaluable added surprises.

    M.J.; Homebuyer

  • The overview is a great idea, clearly identifies what the homeowner needs to focus on first. The breakdown of the report is great. Going section by section I can clearly see each component with the recommendations including diagrams and pictures of my personal home. The report looks great and is easy to read. It’s very useful having this document knowing that I can refer to it at any time in the future should an issue arise with my house.

    M.S.; Homeowner

  • Quick, easy to book, knowledgeable inspectors, great service from customer service team, quick turnaround, extensive reports with all the details in an easy to read location. Also, strength of the brand. Always a trusted source.
