Professional Home Energy Audit

Our Aurora experts can conduct a home energy audit for you. We’ll conduct inspections and tests inside and outside of your home. We’ll examine your outdoor walls and joints, paying special attention to the eaves. We look for a secure fit to make sure no air is getting in – or out – of your home. Inside, we measure your insulation in the attic and around your furnace and water heater. To finish, we’ll check the duct work for tight seals that trap in your heated or conditioned air so it’s released in the rooms you want. A blower door is a final test that may be included in your home energy audit. This test locates and measures leaks using infrared cameras to figure out which areas may have insufficient insulation or air infiltration.

When you do a home energy audit with Service Plus Mechanical, we’ll show you where problems are and how you can fix them. Solutions may range from the inexpensive, such as changing your light bulbs to the more costly, such as reinsulating areas of your home or replacing an appliance. Our goal is to help you attain a more comfortable home, so call 630-473-4749 to book a home energy audit today. Aurora utility companies may also offer similar audits. Call your local utility company to learn more.
