Energy Audits

 

A Virginia Foam Insulators Energy Audit is the first step in tracking your home’s energy use. We perform audits in existing homes as well as for clients who would like it conducted as part of a home inspection prior to making that all important purchase. Each audit is performed by our certified Building Performance Institute (BPI) Inspectors and uses the latest in blower door testing and thermal imaging technology to identify where insulation and moisture issues exist within the building structure. Virginia Foam Insulator’s will guide you through the process during the audit, pointing out your homes deficiencies. Following the audit we will provide you with a written report that indicates a clear path for you to follow to increase your homes energy efficiency. Correcting the deficiencies that we identify could lower your energy costs, increase the comfort in your home, and reduce your carbon footprint in the environment.

Blower Door Test

The standard blower door test is a depressurization test and is done by placing a high speed fan unit in the frame of an exterior door and sucking the air out of the house so as to create a negative pressure in the building. From the air passing through the fan, our BPI inspectors are able to calculate the number of times per hour all the air in your house is changed out, thus allowing us to quantify your homes air leakage.

Using the latest in Infrared camera technology, our technicians can pinpoint air infiltration and loss. Thermal imaging inspections can be purchased independently or can be a part of your typical energy audit. This is especially valuable if you are looking to purchase a new home. By seeing where your leaks are and how extensive the insulation depreciation is, you can catch future problems that may develop down the road like poorly insulated walls, unsealed windows, and water damage, giving you the knowledge you need to make a wise investment.

We invite you to accompany us as we inspect your home, and we welcome any questions you may have regarding the inspection and images we obtain.
