The Home Performance Test is a test done, by a third party, to your home that gives you a detailed roadmap on how your home is performing and what measures could be taken to improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort levels.
Using the detailed report from the test, Rock & Tait will provide you with a free estimate on what insulation measures were suggested for your home. If you choose Rock & Tait for your insulation services, then the third party will come back to your property and conduct a post-test to show you the improvements in your home’s efficiency.
Q: What Are The Steps Of A Home Performance Test?
How It Works:
- Your house is tested for energy efficiency.
- We perform some or all recommendations only if you accept.
- Your house is re-tested for energy efficiency to show improvement.
A Home Performance Test usually takes only a couple hours to perform.
First, a special fan is carefully set up in an exterior door way to depressurize the home while measuring air leakage.
Then the house is inspected with an infrared camera to identify the locations of air infiltration. A report is generated with pictures showing air leakage, and solutions to help save money on energy bills.
If you choose, Rock and Tait can give you a free estimate offering the recommended solutions. If you accept the proposal and have some of or all the work done, the house has a follow up inspection proving the solutions to be successful.
Don’t forget the energy tax credits and the instant monthly savings on energy bills!
Q: How Long Do Home Performance Tests Take?
