Home Energy Audits:
FREE ENERGY AUDIT: We offer free energy audits in Montana. This service typically includes a walk-through and inspection of the whole house with an emphasis on insulation levels and air leakage. The walk through will also discuss lighting, heating and equipment issues. We measure the house and then look at your monthly and annual utility bills. Based on this information, we will identify the most critical energy issues in your house and then offer suggestions for cost effective solutions. We do charge a travel fee for locations further than 50 miles from Livingston.
UTILITY AUDITS: Most Montana utilities, including Northwestern Energy also offer no-cost energy audits. We highly recommend that you schedule a utility audit because they provide a blower door test which provides useful information on sealing your building. The utility auditors also perform a safety check on heating systems. We do not find that utility audits adequately address building flaws or recommend the appropriate level of insulation for Montana climates.
FULL ENERGY AUDITS: If you are serious about investing in energy saving, or are considering an addition/remodeling project, we also provide a full scale energy audit service. We probe and test and measure your house, then run a variety of computer programs to quantify the performance of your house. We describe and evaluate a broad range of possible solutions and evaluate the economic benefits of each measure.
