Energy audits are designed to teach you the many ways to live a healthier, safer, greener, and cheaper lifestyle by making cost-effective and health-improving retrofit to your home and its various systems.
We identify areas of your home that consume the most energy and identify spots that lose the most conditioned air through leaks, gaps, and other bypasses. Our energy audit will clearly pinpoint these problems and suggest the most effective measures to cut your energy costs.
We will ask to see your energy usage record (available from your local utilities) for the past 12-24 months. Comparing your actual usage with the expected usage (computer modeling) and local weather data, provides us yet another way to assess the overall efficiency of your home and its systems.
Blower Doors, zone pressure diagnostics, and infrared cameras used to create an air-sealing and insulation scope of work. This includes all areas of the home and specifically the attic, basement, and crawlspaces. Software modeling is conducted to analyze cost effectiveness of various improvements to these areas.
Gas appliance inspection, Carbon Monoxide (CO) combustion safety testing, duct leakage inspection, indoor air-quality tests, ventilation systems check, HVAC register air-flow and balancing report.
Create lighting and appliance survey, generate light bulb schedule and recommend low-wattage lighting retrofits that do not sacrifice color temperature or lumen output.
Inspection against 2009 building codes, check for construction defects, water management systems, windows and doors, siding, flashing, and painting.
Feasibility Study with ROI estimate: determine access to renewable energy sources or whether existing systems in home are compatible. Includes solar PV, solar hot water, wind power, and geo-thermal systems.
After completing an energy audit, we create a set of deliverables which is sent electronically and will be archived to retrieve at any point in the future. Once a scope of work is designed, numerous changes may result and some parts of the report or computer modelling may be tweaked to have all the data match.
All our home energy audit clients will receive:
We are certified. All of our energy auditors are certified under a combination of building science designations, with most auditors holding 3 or more advanced certificates under RESNET, NAHB, NCI, and the industry standard BPI (Building Performance Institute), which is the organization for residential energy efficiency and weatherization retrofit work. View details of our certifications and licenses.
The Energy Star program was created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.
S. Department of Energy (DOE) in 1992. Energy Star provides national standards for a comprehensive approach to creating energy efficient homes. The program ensures that every aspect of your home is taken into consideration when upgrading your home with an ENERGY STAR partner. It focuses on saving energy and improving home comfort while also helping to protect the environment.

Each state offers different financial incentives for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Here are some of the highlights for your state!
Edge Energy clearly prefers installing SunPower systems. They were professional and technically informed. They were reasonable and accommodating with contractural matters. The installation crews were polite and courteous. They did neat work and were very competent. They were extremely responsive to address problems that arose. I would recommend them without reservation. They put a good face on SunPower.
Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
I was completely satisfied by Edge Energy. They have consistently designed and reliably installed strong performance energy innovations for my home. Indeed the only reason that I installed SunPower panels was due to their recommendation.
Edge Energy responded quickly to my inquiries and provided clear answers. The technicians who oversaw the installation process were professional and I learned a great deal while interacting with them.
