STEP 1 is to complete an energy audit of your home.
This provides you with scientific information about your homes’ energy performance as it will discover where hot & cold air is leaking in to your home. The audit also provides suggestions for correcting these problems along with the projected costs and benefits of doing the work. *Note: This is a required step for rebate eligibility at the federal, state, and local levels.
There are currently programs that offer great discounts for energy audits throughout Northern Colorado. While a typical energy audit can cost up to $400, these programs reduce the expense to $60-$150.
The elements of a typical energy audit are:
- Blower Door Test
- Infrared Scans (aka Thermography) of Home: Visually show air leakage and thermal defects of home
- Safety Check: Ensures proper venting of combustibles and CO2 in home (furnace, H2O heater, etc)
