Professional Home Energy Audit Our Carlsbad experts can do a home energy audit for you. We’ll run inspections and tests inside and outside of your home. Outside, we examine your walls and joints, especially under the eaves. We look for a snug 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. At the end, we’ll check the duct work for correct seals that keep in your heated or conditioned air so it’s released where 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 undertake a home energy audit with Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services, 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 create a more comfortable home, so call 575-887-7777 to schedule a home energy audit today. Carlsbad utility companies may also offer similar audits.
