What is not included? The audit does NOT determine whether or not your electric meter is faulty; faulty electric meters are rare. We check for visible evidence of high electricity use appliances and lighting during the energy audit, but we do NOT measure electricity use at the electric panel. We often spot causes of high electricity bills during our energy audit. Installation of electricity monitors may be available for an additional charge.

  • We will inspect the following areas during your energy audit:
  • Air-tightness measurement with a blower door test.
  • An infrared camera inspection enables us to pinpoint air leaks and missing insulation.
  • Combustion safety testing of your heating system and/or water heater. We check for natural gas leaks, which are more common than you might imagine, measure carbon monoxide levels in the exhaust, and determine whether exhaust is spilling into your home.
  • Insulation levels in walls, ceilings, basement and/or crawl space.
  • Window check with a low-e (high efficiency) coating detector.
  • Heating and cooling system.
  • Water heater.
  • Lights.
  • Appliances.
  • You’ll get a report which describes what we find, with infrared pictures and tips on how to make your home more comfortable and efficient. Each house is different, so an energy audit is a great way to find out which improvements make the most sense.

How much does an energy audit cost? After the $200 Xcel energy audit rebate** is applied, $195 to $250 is typical, depending on home size and location. Smaller homes may be less, and large homes a bit more. Add $200 if the home does not use Xcel Energy for the primary heating fuel source, or you’re in a townhome with more than four units in the building, as these homes won’t qualify for rebates. Also, there is a 30% tax credit up to $150. Ask your tax advisor for details.

How long does it take to do an energy audit? An energy audit typically takes two to three hours, but larger than average homes may take longer.
