Energy Audits

Energy auditing has been around sine the 1970’s but has recently increased in popularity due to the new tax incentives and rebates provided through President Obama’s stimulus act. Now more than ever homeowners and business owners are interested in upgrading their homes and facilities to be more energy efficient and to help them lower the cost of their monthly energy bills.

The Purpose of Energy Audits

The purpose of an energy audit is to analyze the energy flows in a building, and understand its energy dynamics. During the energy audit, the auditor looks for opportunities to reduce the amount of energy input into the building without negatively affecting the output(s). Beyond simply identifying the sources of energy use, an energy audit seeks to prioritize the energy uses according to the greatest to least cost effective opportunities for energy savings.

The Energy Audit Process

The process of conducting an energy audit can be very simple. First, the energy auditor will obtain the energy bills for a minimum of 1 year for the building. The current energy data is used to create a baseline and establish what the current energy costs are. Next the auditor conducts a room-by-room inspection of the building. During the room-by-room inspection, the auditor examines energy consuming items as well as areas that waste energy. With the new information obtained during the inspection, the auditor then calculates the current energy usage and proposed energy savings and document the findings into a summary report.

Home Energy Audits

A residential or home energy audit focuses on reducing energy costs within single family homes. A residential energy audit focuses on energy wasting factors such as air leakage plus energy consuming factors including heating, lighting, and more. With over 120 million single family homes in the United States alone, many of these homes do not meet the current energy efficiency standards of new homes being built today and are wasting tremendous amounts of energy and adding too many pollutants into the atmosphere contributing to global warming.

The average residential energy audit finds an annual savings of 30% or $600 per home while eliminating thousands of pounds of pollutants from ever reaching the atmosphere. Americans are now more health and energy conscious than ever before. New "Green" Americans are consistently looking for ways to be more healthy while helping the earth be healthy at the same time. One area they are looking now is at their own carbon footprint which includes trading in their gas guzzler SUV's for hybrid cars and having energy audits on their home and upgrading with green products.

Commercial Energy Audits

Commercial energy audits are designed specifically to help business owners reduce costs. As small and large businesses continue to struggle with economic strain in the current economy coupled with lower consumer demand, one area they are now looking at is energy efficiency. Unlike the residential market, commercial energy audits require additional computations and knowledge of terms such as Return on Investment and Net Present Value. Since business owners capital is constantly going toward growing their business, getting trained in payback calculations ensures you can speak their language when determining how long machinery and infrastructure upgrades take to pay off and when their investment in energy efficiency will start to pay dividends.

Commercial energy auditing offers a unique opportunity in today’s marketplace. Unlike residential audits, there are only a few companies that offer this type of niche training. This means there are only a few commercial auditors to help the 5 million plus small business owners. Considering that commercial energy auditor are in such low supply, increase indemand, and higher per audit costs equates to a huge income opportunity for new Commercial energy auditors.
