Walker-Miller offers our residential customers energy assessments designed to provide solutions that will improve comfort in your home while also decreasing ever-rising energy bill costs. HOW DOES THIS HOME ENERGY AUDIT WORK?!
Step 1: Get a Residential Energy Audit!
You can start by calling us at (313) 366-8535! Our home energy experts will work with you one-on-one to identify energy-saving upgrades.
For a fee of only $99 our home energy experts will:
• Evaluate your home’s heating and cooling system, insulation, windows, appliances and lighting.
• Conduct a blower door test to detect air leaks that could be costing you money.
• Conduct a combustion appliance test on homes that require combustion testing to meet health and safety standards.
Step 2: Make the Recommended Energy-Saving Upgrades.
After the audit, the auditor will provide you with a comprehensive report, review the findings and provide a list of recommended upgrades you can make to increase your home’s energy efficiency. You decide which upgrades to implement. The more kWh savings you achieve by making these upgrades, the more rebates you may earn.
Home improvement upgrades typically include:
• Wall Insulation
• Attic Insulation
• HVAC equipment
• Air Sealing
• Duct Sealing
Step 3: Achieve and Enjoy Your Savings!
The final step of the Residential Energy Audit Program takes place once the upgrades have been installed. For audit-recommended air sealing upgrades, a follow-up blower door test is required for infiltration requirements and to determine savings. The savings are filled in on the rebate application form by the auditor at the time of the blower door test.
Remember, our experts are there to help you with the work, as well! After leaving you with a detailed report prioritizing the changes that you should make in your home, we can perform that work that for you, or identify the best professional to get the job done for you.
