Residential Services



The first critical inspection our team does is an insulation inspection. At this time, we verify that specific building practices and criteria are being met. Some examples of what we look for are: ample air sealing, effective air barriers, and properly installed insulation. Verifying that these areas are being carefully completed ensures that the home will be comfortable and healthy for the homeowner, with lower utility bills.


The second critical inspection that takes place happens at the end of construction. At this time, Energy Diagnostics completes the air leakage test (blower door), duct leakage testing, and records all components that impact energy. We then take all verified components and test results to complete a HERS rating.


The HERS rating is unique for each home, and has many features. One component of the rating is the HERS score. This numerical value represents the home’s energy efficiency; the lower the number, the more energy efficient the home is. Each point lowered on the HERS scale represents 1% energy reduction for that home. The rating also includes an energy portfolio for the homeowner. The portfolio details all of the home’s energy features, expected energy usage, and annual energy cost.
