An in-home energy audit performed by a PSNC Energy professional can help identify specific repairs or upgrades that will reduce your energy bills. As part of the audit, a technician will conduct a blower door test, when practical, as well as walk through your home with you to inspect windows and doors, existing weatherization materials, insulation levels and appliances in order to assess your home’s energy efficiency.
What is a Blower Door Test?
A blower door is a great way to test for air leaks in your home. A powerful fan mounted into the frame of an exterior door pulls air out of your house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings in your home.
The service costs $25 and is available to current residential customers with natural gas heat or natural gas water heating whose homes were built prior to April 15, 1993.
Should the audit find areas that need improvement and recommend measures to make your home more energy efficient, you can choose to have PSNC Energy make certain improvements while we’re still at your home. You can also apply the $25 fee toward the purchase of certain materials and equipment from our company.
