What to Expect During an Energy Assessment
What is an Energy Assessment?
An Energy Assessment consists of an in-home consultation with a qualified energy specialist designed to help you understand the electric consumption of your home or business. The specialist will examine your home or business and help you find ways to reduce energy consumption, improve comfort and lower energy bills.
What happens at the Energy Assessment?
An energy specialist will start by providing you with your electrical usage for the previous 12 months. We have found that reviewing usage helps our customers understand their consumption patterns. The energy specialist will also inquire about the outcome you are hoping to achieve with the Energy Assessment. This will help ensure our representative answers your specific questions and addresses concerns. The specialist will also examine the inside and outside of your home or business, taking inventory of its different systems (plumbing, heating/cooling, water storage, building envelope, appliances, lighting, etc.).
How long will the Energy Assessment last?
A typical consultation will last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. This should allow adequate time for the energy specialist to discuss your energy usage with you and examine your home or business for energy-saving opportunities.
What is not included as part of the Energy Assessment?
The Energy Assessment does not provide an explanation of bills, particularly related to customer-described high bills. No actual testing of any equipment, window/door draft testing, attic insulation or HVAC review is provided during the Energy Assessment.
What do I need to do to prepare for the Energy Assessment?
IID requires that an adult be present during the entire consultation. During the assessment, the energy specialist may require access to all of the rooms in your home or business. If you have a concern regarding an energy specialist entering the rooms of your home or business, please discuss those concerns with the service representative when scheduling an appointment.
What will be the outcome of the Energy Assessment?
Upon the completed examination, the energy specialist will generate a report** that summarizes the existing conditions of your home or business, identify potential energy-saving measures and direct you towards additional resources and energy-saving remediation. The Energy Assessment report will be mailed or e-mailed to you, based on your preference.
