Information from the Energy Audit and current utility bills will allow us to create an energy model of your home. This model helps us to see your home’s energy usage as a whole. We can put together a report that suggests prioritized energy improvements. GIC helps our customers save money by keeping up to date on any available rebates for energy home improvements.
Trained auditors will look for safety issues such as high levels of carbon monoxide, fire hazards and proper drafting of gas appliances. An energy auditor ensures that each gas appliance is producing safe levels of carbon monoxide. The auditor looks for areas where the garage is not sealed completely from the house. This is important due to harmful gases can be emitted from vehicles even after they are turned off. In some cases homeowners warm up their cars and leave them running in the garage. If the home and garage are sharing air due to lack of air sealing this poses a health concern for anyone living in the home. Having an energy audit performed will help ensure the home is safe, comfortable and affordable. Each audit includes a report detailing the list of recommended improvements.
