Learn to make your home more energy efficient, comfortable and healthy, while spending your money wisely, with an EnerGuide home evaluation. This takes the guesswork out of which upgrade would work best for you and your family.
Most people believe that new windows or more insulation increase a home’s comfort: You wouldn’t be the first to believe that. Although, neither of those are a one-and-done solution, some of these renovations may actually create more issues than you think. You need to ask yourself: “How does changing one thing affect the operation of my home as a whole?”
An EnerGuide Home Evaluation approaches your home as “one system” and gives you information on how to improve your whole home.
Your home is comprised of many different parts: walls, windows, ceilings, a foundation, a heating system, occupants and their activities; All of which interact with each other. With heat, moisture, and air, both inside and outside of the home, changes to any part of the system may affect the way heat, moisture, and air interact with each other. This may have detrimental effects on the home. Keeping this in mind, you need to understand building science to carry out effective energy efficiency measures. At WestPro Inspections, an EnerGuide home evaluation is more than just an energy audit. We understand and approach your home as a system before recommending any upgrades.
