Energy Audit Agreement
How We Inspect
The Client has requested an Energy Audit to identify systems and components in need of energy efficiency improvement. The inspection will substantially conform to the:Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) Energy Audit Standard if it is named as a comprehensive audit or HERS Rating and will include the following systems: review of insulation levels, test for air leakage levels, review of heating/cooling/water heating systems, review of lighting and appliances, and a basic review of energy use. The evaluation will be based on observations that are primarily visual and non-invasive. The inspection and report are not intended to be technically exhaustive.
