List of applicable testing

 
1. Combustion Safety and Heating Related Tests

These tests and inspections are conducted in the heating and cooling equipment area 
of your house.
Carbon Monoxide Tests
We look for excess carbon monoxide in the flue gases of your heating appliances and in 
the air of your house.
 
Drafting Tests
An evaluation of the risk that the combustion gases in building’s flue's will be pulled back into your house by a source 
of negative pressure. 

Combustion Efficiency Test
A measurement of the efficiency of your heating system. A higher number means that more of the energy goes into your house. 

Flue Inspection
An visual examination of your combustion equipment flue pipes for blockages or other hazardous conditions. 

HVAC Equipment Inspection 
A visual inspection examines the overall condition of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment. 

Duct Air Flow Estimate
This test estimates the amount of air moving through your duct system. Too little air movement in your ducts will affect the comfort 
and efficiency of your heating and/or cooling system /not included in base test/


2. Health and Durability Inspections

Mold and Moisture Sources
As part of a walk through of the house, our inspector looks for areas where there is evidence of mold or high humidity. 

Indoor Air Pollution Sources
Also as part of a walk through of the house, our inspector looks for areas where there is evidence of potential sources 
of indoor air pollution. 

House Durability Inspection
The inspector looks for areas where there is evidence of maintenance problems affecting the durability of your house.

Insulation and Envelope Inspection
An examination and measurement of the insulation levels in various areas of your building’s "shell." 

Roof and Attic Inspection
The inspector examines /visual/ the roof and attic for evidence of maintenance problems. 

 Exhaust Fan Duct Condition
Finally, as part of a walk-through of the house, our inspector examines the condition of your exhaust fan ductwork for length and condition. 
Too long of a duct run can cause moisture problems, and leaky exhaust ducts can put damaging amounts of moisture into your house. 


3. Whole House Performance Tests

Blower Door Test
A comprehensive test measures the leakiness of your house. The building is pressurized and de-pressurized and a measurement 
of air leakage is performed. 

Duct Leakage
A similar test that measures the leakiness of your duct system /not included in base test/

Pressure Mapping
This test helps to determine the unintentional air flows that occur when the heating and cooling fan is on. A second test 
looks at the unintentional connectedness of various spaces such as attics, basements and garages to your house. 


4. Energy Analysis 

Historical Electrical Consumption
Analysis of one year's worth of historical electric bills. Identify possible savings.

Historical Gas Consumption 
Analysis of one year's worth of historical gas bills. Identify possible savings.

Lighting
Lighting bulbs and fixtures can be replaced with more efficient bulbs and fixtures that last longer and pay for themselves. 

Appliances
Energy Star appliances save money and provide high performance. Appliances are identified as potentially benefiting 
from an upgrade to an Energy Star Appliance.
