If you’ve spent any time on our website, you’ve probably heard about energy assessments and how they can be a great way to improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. But did you know that an energy assessment can also help you improve the health of you and your family?

How an Energy Assessment Can Make Your Home Healthier

Your house depends on a number of systems that work together to keep it healthy, efficient, and comfortable year-round. This includes its heating and cooling systems, ventilation, and insulation. If a problem arises with one system, it’s going to affect the health of your entire home.

If you want your home to be a healthy space for you and your family, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach. A Healthy Home™ Assessment, which is our comprehensive home energy assessment (or energy audit), helps pinpoint a wide range of issues that could be harming your indoor air quality (IAQ).

Your assessment, for example, might reveal that air leaks are letting outdoor pollutants into your home; or, it might reveal that poorly insulated ductwork is leading to condensation and mold growth.

What to Expect during Your Home Assessment

The Healthy Home™ Assessment includes a number of diagnostic tests — such as draft testing to assess air leakage, infrared thermal imaging to locate missing insulation, and combustion safety testing to make sure carbon monoxide isn’t entering your home.

After your assessment, you’ll receive a custom solution with home upgrades that are proven to:

  • Reduce dust and allergens

  • Control indoor moisture

  • Prevent mold growth

  • Ensure proper ventilation

  • Eliminate harmful gases like radon and carbon monoxide

Smart Upgrades to Improve Your Family’s Health

Improving IAQ and home health starts with making the right home upgrades. Every house is different, so the right solutions for one house might not be the right solutions for another.

Some of the home performance upgrades we most often recommend include:

  • Air sealing to keep out allergens and excess moisture

  • Mechanical ventilation for fresh indoor air

  • Duct sealing to eliminate leaks in ductwork

  • Improvements to your thermal envelope (Insulation)

  • New windows and doors for greater home comfort
