Evaluations and Testing
Full Service Residential Energy Audits & Testing Services from The Energy Store
We have been recognized 5 years in a row by the Department of Energy as one of the top 100 contractors in the U.S. for our abilities and results in residential energy evaluation and testing. This honor is a testament to the professionalism and expertise we bring to the home performance contracting industry.
There are many components involved in home energy tests and evaluations. We approach each home as a unique system with unique unique needs. This is why a thorough, comprehensive evaluation of how your home or building uses energy is essential to improving its comfort and efficiency. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to homes. In the same way that two identical cars develop different issues due to the way they are driven, even similar homes are used and lived in differently, leading to unique issues and needs. Below is a list of the various evaluation and testing services we provide to deal with any unique challenges we confront.
R C. - Sheffield, MANovember 16, 2016
These guys are great. We had an energy audit done on our new house and these guys came out shortly afterwards to install insulation around our rim joists. We found them to be careful, courteous, and communicative. If they thought they could have done something better than what we proposed, they approached me and asked if it was ok and we said go ahead and do it. They sealed off our old dirt floor in our basement and meticulously put Poly-iso in the rim joists with spray foam to seal it. They even foamed every little hole in the basement that was going upstairs or outside. Our neighbors had them come out a couple months later and we know that they were very pleased as well. If I ever have the opportunity to hire The Energy Store again - we will certainly be happy to do that.
