Just like a doctor conducts x-rays and blood work to diagnose health problems, a Green ID home energy audit incorporates advanced equipment and technology to diagnose where your home is losing energy. When a homeowner is looking for ways of saving energy, an energy audit is the best place to start because it specifically addresses all the components of your home that affect your energy use.
As one of the best energy audit companies in the Phoenix metro area, our seasoned experts will take the care and time to properly assess your home’s insulation, ductwork, airflow, hotspots and exposure. Then, we’ll sit down with you to review our results and make no-pressure recommendations for improvements.

Green ID's home energy audits include a series of important steps all designed to find ways of saving you energy. Our expert energy auditor will meet you at your home to begin our 14-point process:
This is a crucial first step in diagnosing your home because you are one of the important sources of information for our advisors.
Visual Inspection of the House
We will look to see where there are potential venting problems, window and sun exposure and typical construction defects that may lead to other problems.
Combustion Safety and Gas Leakage Tests
For your own safety, you will want these issues corrected before your home gets tightened up or your ductwork is replaced.
Whole House Blower Door Test
This test measures how leaky your home is and isolates where the leaks occur.
Duct Leakage Test
We measure the amount of leakage in your ductwork and visually inspect the ducts in your attic.
Duct Design Evaluation
At this point in the home energy audit, we look at how the ducts were placed and installed in your rooms to find opportunities to properly air balance the home, relocate ducts or add new registers for maximum air flow.
Infrared Camera Inspection
Our Infrared Camera Inspection will spot hidden defects in your insulation – pointing out hotspots that may be causing you discomfort.
Utility Bill Analysis
Like many energy audit companies, we will analyze your past energy use. Your home's usage pattern provides a good indication of what's going on in your home.
Static Pressure Test
This process will evaluate your HVAC system, ductwork and registers to tell us how well the airflow is moving through your delivery system and if the system is being starved for air.
Green ID’s Pressure Test will identify pressure imbalances between rooms that exaggerate dust and allergens, air leaks and make the HVAC system work harder than needed.
Water Heating Evaluation
We will look at your temperature settings, feasibility for alternative heating sources and other energy saving opportunities.
Insulation and Air Barrier Evaluation
Good insulation is one of the crucial ways to save energy at home! We will inspect your attic for insulation condition and how it was installed. Poor installation or a lack of knowledge by home builders and insulation contractors often leaves many homes improperly insulated.
Pool Pump Evaluation
If you own a pool, we will look at energy saving opportunities at your often overlooked, second biggest energy user in your home: the pool pump system.
Home Energy Report
The final step in our home energy audit process is to summarize our findings, giving you modeled cost savings from an advanced heat load calculation we perform on your home. We will itemize each recommendation with clear pricing that includes the possibility of 18 months same-as-cash payment.
All of this is included with our Home Energy Audit. Schedule yours today!
