Home Energy Assessments

Expert Home Energy Audits In Syracuse, Ithaca, Rochester & Nearby

Net-zero homes are so well-insulated, airtight, and energy-efficient they generate as much renewable energy as they consume. Not only does this save money on utility costs, but it also helps homeowners reach net-zero carbon emissions.

Home energy assessments are essential to save energy and money in your home. Our Home Energy Performance Division conducts comprehensive energy assessments 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 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 to help save energy.

The results of a home energy assessment 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 assessment companies serving The Finger Lakes area of New York. We specialize in energy-saving home improvements and our home energy assessment is the first step in diagnosing your home's energy issues. Upon completing our energy assessment, we can suggest the repairs and upgrades that help you save money on your utility bills and will make the biggest difference in your home's energy performance and comfort.

What you can expect with our no-cost home energy assessment

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 energy-saving improvements, including air sealing, 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 an 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.
