Health & Safety Concerns
You might be surprised to learn that an energy audit can save your life. Because we take a comprehensive look at air flows and how systems interact with each other, we can often identify instances of back draft and other harmful conditions that can compromise your health.
Within the scope of our energy audit, domestic hot water tanks are the most frequent cause for concern. Our energy assessment will identify any potential back-drafting issues caused by insufficient combustion air that can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or explosion. Left untreated, these conditions can cause significant property damage and can even be fatal.
Your Pro Energy Consultant will also assess garages, attics and/or crawlspaces as part of your audit, as these spaces often contain air contaminants such as insulation fibers and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Our energy assessment focuses on where the air is coming from and going to within your property, to understand if these harmful substances are working their way into the main airflow.
