Detailed Energy Audit Services to Help Lower Operating Costs

It takes a lot of energy to heat, cool and operate a home. Most homebuyers purchase a home without first understanding what it will cost to operate it once they move in. That’s where Optima Home Inspections can help. We don’t want you to waste money on unnecessarily high operating costs. When we inspect a home, we provide a detailed energy audit that provides insight into what’s going on and what can be done to reduce energy consumption.

Certified Inspections & Detailed Reports

As part of a professional energy audit, Optima Home Inspections provides a:

  • Home Energy Report. The Home Energy Report gives homebuyers a quick understanding of how much a home will cost to operate once they move in. It also lays out where energy is being wasted in the home and discusses what can be done to save energy, increase comfort and reduce costs. The Home Energy Report is a valuable tool, and the average homeowner can save over $500 every year on utility bills by following the prioritized recommendations within it.
  • Certified Inspection. To produce a Home Energy Report, our Certified Home Energy Inspector will collect over 40 data points related to home energy. Then, we’ll use an advanced energy calculator developed by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors to estimate the home’s yearly energy usage, pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies, develop recommendations for energy improvements and determine potential energy savings.
  • Home Energy Book. The Home Energy Book is included with a Home Energy Report. This companion e-book describes additional ways to save energy, increase comfort and protect the environment. It also includes do-it-yourself tips, including easy low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy.

Cost-Saving, Environmentally Friendly Home Energy Improvements

The benefits from making energy improvements include saving on your utility bills, increasing the comfort of your home and reducing your use of natural resources. For example, if a home will cost the homeowner $1,451 per year to operate and the family makes the recommended energy improvements after they move in, they could expect to save $571 every year. These estimates and recommendations are based on the energy calculations and cost databases administered by the U.S. Department of Energy and its Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Optima Home Inspections utilizes these and various other tools and experiences to help homeowners save money, help the environment and live better.
