Professional Home Energy Audit
Our Thousand Oaks team can do a home energy audit for you. We’ll do inspections and tests inside and outside of your home. We’ll spend time outside looking at your walls, joints and eaves. We look for a snug fit to make sure no air is getting in – or out – of your home. Inside, we look at 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 where you want. A blower door is an additional test that may be included in your home energy audit. This test identifies and measures leaks using infrared cameras to determine which areas may have insufficient insulation or air infiltration.
When you undertake a home energy audit with Air Max HVAC Inc, we’ll show you where problems are and what your options are to fix them. Solutions may range from the inexpensive, such as changing your light bulbs to the more expensive, such as reinsulating areas of your home or replacing an appliance. Our goal is to help you achieve better home comfort, so call (818) 436-0006 to set up your home energy audit today. Thousand Oaks utility companies may also offer similar audits. Call your local utility company to learn more.
