即使你过去对你的家进行过公用事业审计, 家庭能源小组仍然是一个有用的项目,可以帮助降低能源成本,并与其他资源联系起来. 如果您在公用事业审计后完成了任何能源改进-特别是空气密封或绝缘-那么我们可以检查以确保您安装的措施确实节省了能源.

While not necessary to conduct an energy audit, 当你家里的室内空气温度和室外温度相差至少20度时,红外摄像机(IR)是一个有用的工具. 红外图像是审核员识别您家中可能绝缘或空气密封不足的特定区域(如外墙或阁楼)的一种方法. 这些图像通常是在审核员运行鼓风机门测试时收集的, which performs effectively at all temperatures.
