  1. 1. Why Get An Energy Audit? Let's face it...energy conservation is no longer a topic sitting on the back shelf, continually passed over for more important issues.  In today's economy, several homeowners are looking for numerous conservation methods to drive utility bills down.  With the potential for further unemployment, higher taxes, and the pending government environmental bills, saving money has become one of the pinnacle priorities on people's minds.  Additionally, with growing concerns about the environment, homeowners are also seeking techniques to reduce their overall footprint in regards to the operation of their homes.  Southwest Key Green Energy and Construction will provide you with a solution to both of these concerns.   Using the latest diagnostic technology and equipment, an energy audit inspection of your home will not only determine several problematic areas of energy loss within your entire house structure, but will also provide you with recommendations to repair these problems.  Knowledge is power, and knowing what is creating your home's energy loss will allow you the opportunity to prioritize your repairs, and avoid &quot;up-selling&quot; and &quot;scamming&quot; from contractors.   Whether you are looking to sell your home or just desire to lower your monthly energy bills, Southwest Key Green Energy and Construction is dedicated to providing you with all of your energy audit needs.  Thank you for visiting and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
  2. 2. What Is An Energy Audit? <ul><li>The purpose of a residential energy audit is to determine which of the multiple aspects of the home's construction are generating the largest energy loss.  The primary focus will center around the attic, windows, and air conditioning unit(s).  Other aspects include the home's position in relation to the sun, appliances, thermal boundaries, and more.  Using a comprehensive checklist and state-of-the-art technological equipment, an energy audit will provide homeowners with recommendations to control the amount of energy loss, in addition to lowering the home's environmental impact. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Energy Audit Tools <ul><li>DUCT BLASTER </li></ul><ul><li>A duct blaster is a tool used to determine the overall house duct leakage. This performance test involves pressurizing the duct system with a calibrated fan and simultaneously measuring the air flow through the fan and its effect on the pressure within the duct system. The tighter the duct system, the less air you need from the fan to create a change in duct system pressure. Testing procedures can be set up to measure only duct leaks which are connected to the outside, or to measure total duct leakage (i.e. leaks connected to the outside and inside of the house). Duct leakage measurements are used to diagnose and demonstrate leakage problems, estimate efficiency losses from duct leakage, and certify the quality of duct system installation. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Energy Audit Tools <ul><li>BLOWER DOOR </li></ul><ul><li>A blower door is a diagnostic tool designed to measure the air tightness of buildings. and to help locate air leakage sites. A blower door consists of a calibrated fan for measuring an airflow rate, and a pressure-sensing device to measure the air pressure created by the fan flow. The combination of pressure and fan-flow measurements are used to determine the building air tightness. The air tightness of a building is useful knowledge when trying to increase energy conservation or decrease indoor air pollution, or control building pressures. With the blower door operating, the auditor can search the home and literally feel the locations where the air penetrating the thermal boundary of the home. </li></ul>

  8. 8. Enjoy Your Savings! <ul><li>On average, you should be spending $100 in utility costs per 1000 square feet of home. We find that typically this is not the case, and that the average homeowner is spending vastly more due to air infiltration, duct leakage, and more. With a comprehensive energy audit, you will have a scientific list of recommendations, along with a saving to invest ratio (SIR) for those recommendations, in order for you to take a clear look at what can be done to lower your monthly energy bills. </li></ul><ul><li>Our current SIR for most homes is 3 years, meaning that after that time you are enjoying steady monthly savings. </li></ul><ul><li>With an SIR of 3.0, the average home saves between $60-$100 per month in utility bills! </li></ul>
  9. 9. Energy Efficiency Analysis <ul><li>In September of 2009, we performed an energy audit for a client. After determining several energy efficiency recommendations, the client had our company install a radiant barrier for the attic decking, along with bringing the attic insulation levels up to R-38. </li></ul><ul><li>The client was gracious enough to provide us with the actual graphs available through Austin Energy to show the monthly energy savings since the improvements. </li></ul><ul><li>The blue bars and line represent his 2009-2010 energy usage, while the red bars and line represent his 2010-2011 usage. </li></ul>
