Even if you have had a utility audit performed on your home in the past, 家庭能源小组 can still be a useful program to help reduce energy costs 和 connect with other resources. If you have completed any energy improvements on your home since your utility audit — especially air sealing or insulation — then we can check to make sure that your installed measures are actually saving energy.

虽然没有必要进行能源审计, the infrared camera (IR) can be a useful tool when t在这里 is at least a 20 degree temperature difference between your home’s indoor air temperature 和 和 the outdoor temperature. IR images are one way your auditor can identify specific areas in your home that may have insufficient insulation or air sealing such as your exterior walls or attic. 的se images are typically collected while the auditor is also running the blower door test, 哪种在所有温度下都有效.
