When you request an In-home Energy Audit, a PSNC Energy audit technician will come to your home to perform a detailed evaluation of your home’s energy efficiency, including a blower door test, when practical.
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.
Upon completing the assessment, your audit tech will provide information and recommendations on your home’s overall energy usage. The service costs $25 and is available to current PSNC Energy residential customers with natural gas heat or natural gas water heating whose homes were built prior to April 15, 1993.
Should the audit tech find areas that need to be improved (like your weather stripping), you can choose to have certain improvements made on the spot. You may also apply the $25 service fee as a credit toward the purchase of certain recommended materials and equipment from the PSNC Energy Audit tech.
