Home energy audits are essential to making your home truly affordable, comfortable, and sustainable. Our Home Energy Performance Division conducts comprehensive energy audits in accordance with Building Performance Institute (BPI) standards and we also help homeowners to take advantage of a number of rebates and incentives available in The Finger Lakes area.

These Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® home assessments involve first gathering information about building construction, existing insulation, air infiltration, and HVAC systems, then calculating building heat loss and understanding home energy usage, and finally recommending improvements where they are needed most.

The results of a home energy audit are essential to the proper sizing of heating and cooling equipment and/or renewable energy systems. Efficiency improvements are typically the most cost effective way to reduce energy usage and utility costs, and improve the comfort and safety of your home.

Halco is one of the leading energy audit companies serving The Finger Lakes area of New York. We specialize in energy-saving home improvements and our home energy audit is the first step in diagnosing your home's energy issues. Upon completing our energy assessment, we can suggest the repairs and upgrades that will make the biggest difference in your home's energy performance and comfort.

              I could not find where we could give our testimony regarding our experience with Halco...so I'm putting it here...We have been customers of Halco for several years, always happy with service. In fact, the customer service is outstanding. We recently had an energy audit done by Will Graeper, he was very professional, explained everything in a simple, well understood manner. Our audit proved to be helpful, and because of the outcome, we are having the insulation blown under our manufactured home. Thank you Halco for your dependable, professional service.

    David and Susan L. of Chenango Forks, NY

    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Mr. Smith, We were very impressed by your employee, William Graeper, who came to our house on August 1st, 2012 to do an energy audit. Will was very informative and pleasant and thorough. He is very intelligent and was able to convey and explain very complex information in an easy to understand manner. He was very thorough in checking our heat sources and inspecting areas of our house and explaining why he was doing things and pointing out areas of concern. He gave us a lot of information during the house tour/inspection. He demonstrated throughout his visit his desire to help the "customer" and is very passionate about energy. He was soft spoken and not pushy, and smiled and seemed to genuinely care about the energy issues in our house and where our specific needs were. He listened intently to what we told him and answered all our questions pleasantly and completely and had some great suggestions (even though we kind of overwhelmed him a few times.) He made the energy audit enjoyable and interesting. It was a pleasure having him come into our home. he is an impressive young man and certainly did earn our respect and admiration. Thank you!
    David and Susan L.
    Chenango Forks, NY

Our home energy assessment process typically follows these general initial steps:

One of our BPI-Certified Comfort Advisers meets with you, discusses your needs, does some preliminary diagnostic testing, and reviews your energy bills to determine the potential opportunities for energy reduction and solutions. Your Comfort Adviser also performs diagnostic tests (including a blower door test and thermal imaging), health and safety tests, and measures up building components for computer modeling. This data is then analyzed to determine your heating and cooling loads, and areas for improvement are focused on.

Financing Available

Based on our analysis, different improvements ranging from air sealing, to insulation installation in existing walls, attic, and basements spaces, to equipment repairs and upgrades such as high-efficiency water heaters, air conditioning and heating systems, are recommended. A report and set of recommendations are completed and an appointment is scheduled to present them. This report includes economic and energy saving analysis of all improvements, and from there, you are free to choose how to improve your home. Once you choose the improvements you would like completed, we will provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate for all suggested work.
