Whole Home Performance Assessment


Similar in concept to an energy audit, a whole home performance assessment is the best way to learn how your home’s performance and livability can be improved.



Any home improvement project can impact your home's energy consumption, livability, comfort, or safety.


Choosing to have a Home Performance Assessment performed prior to building, remodeling, or purchasing a home will have immediate positive impacts on your budget by empowering you to make informed choices.

Starting at $299

Price can vary based on the size and complexity of the building. Our assessments include:

  • Stakeholder interview (owners, occupants, contractor, etc.)

  • Energy Consumption Analysis using your utility data

  • Visual inspection of:

    • exterior, living space, attics, basements, crawl spaces, and garages

    • insulation, doors, and windows

    • mechanical systems (heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water)

  • Rough floorplan design sketch for dimensions, and for the consideration of design modifications

  • Infrared Thermography: thermal imaging to identify insulation problems, drafty areas, moisture problems, and more

  • Blower Door Test to quantify draftiness, locate weak points in the building's airtightness, and assess ventilation needs

  • Duct Blaster Test of all duct systems to quantify draftiness and locate points of leakage

  • Combustion Appliance Zone (CAZ) Test to ensure that gas lines and gas appliances are safe (or find out they aren't!) and evaluate the need for design modification

  • Written report detailing results, recommendations, and project proposals. Includes copious amounts of photos.

  • Follow-up meeting with stakeholders (owners, occupants, contractor, etc.) to discuss results of the assessment and recommendations for the home
