A home performance audit sounds technical and a little intimidating, but it's really about understanding how your home works. The team at Wisconsin Home Improvement has the expertise and experience to show you the particular strengths and weaknesses of your home. Once we've completed the energy analysis, we can recommend solutions to improve your home's performance. And by performance, we mean comfort as well as efficiency, safety and energy savings.

Is Your Home Experiencing These Issues?

You're probably aware of some problems in your home that you experience during day-to-day living:

  • A room that's always too hot or too cold
  • Unusual drafty spots
  • Ice dams that return every winter
  • A musty smell that won't go away
  • Higher-than-average heating or cooling bills

A Wisconsin Home Improvement home performance audit uses many industry-standard tools to identify the causes behind these problems and many others. Once your home energy audit is completed, we can help identify the best solutions to these problems.

What is a Home Performance Audit?

This energy analysis is a comprehensive series of tests that inspects and measures your home's efficiency from top to bottom. In most cases, a Wisconsin home performance energy analysis can be completed in just 90 minutes. We always allow extra time in the appointment to answer your questions about what the results show and what steps are needed to correct the problems.

Our home performance team is certified by both Building Performance Institute (BPI) and Owens Corning to provide the most complete and accurate assessment of your home.

Steps to a Complete Home Energy Efficiency Analysis

There are several elements that are included in the home performance audit conducted by our Wisconsin Home Improvement experts. They include:

Home Performance Audits: Useful & Important Information

Many of our customers are amazed and surprised by just how much wasted energy and money we identify once we've completed the efficiency report. Fortunately, improving your insulation and other steps are considered some of the most cost-effective ways to improve home performance. In fact, many homeowners save as much as 20% in energy bills upon completing remedies indicated by a home performance audit!

In addition, by solving some of the problems caused by poor insulation, leaky walls and ice dams, your home's systems will gain a longer life expectancy because they'll be working less hard to keep you comfortable.

Blower Door Draft Testing

If you've ever wondered where your home might be leaking your heated and cooled air, a blower door test is the best way to find out. Wisconsin Home Improvement uses blower door draft testing to find gaps, cracks and holes in your home's building envelope, or the boundary between your conditioned indoor air and the unconditioned air.

Combustion Safety Testing

Most homes are now equipped with standard carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke detection alarms for home safety. These detectors give families warnings when fire breaks out or unsafe levels of CO gases build up. A Wisconsin Home Improvement combustion safety test looks at the mechanical appliances that burn natural gas or fuel oil to ensure that dangerous gases, including carbon monoxide, are properly vented outside the home.

Attic, Basement, & Exterior Assessment

The exterior walls or "envelope" of your house is where many efficiency and comfort problems originate. These areas of your home — including the roof/attic, exterior walls and basement — come in contact with the elements and are often where air infiltration or water seepage can cause problems. At Wisconsin Home Improvement, we assess these areas of your home in particular to make sure everything is functioning properly.
