A home energy audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we're able to identify the key areas where your home is wasting energy, and recommend the most cost-effective improvements for maximum comfort, minimum energy bills, and optimal indoor air quality and building health and safety.

Our approach in conducting home energy audits is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home, which distinguishes our "whole-house energy audit" from the "clipboard audits" offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted audit as a means to sell products or services.

Our whole-house energy audit looks at the building envelope (which inludes all the components that make up your home's outer shell, including windows, doors, insulation levels, and the level of air leakage in between building materials); all combustion equipment including boilers, furnaces and water heaters; and the movement of air within the home to ensure that the air you and your family are breathing is fresh, healthy and safe. During the audit, we use an infrared camera to identify air leakage and deficient insulation, a blower door to measure the rate of air infiltration in the home, and a duct blaster test to determine whether your ducts are well-sealed, among other tools.

Dear Pete,

I had an audit by St. Croix Energy Solutions. You were prompt, professional and had very valid and reasonable suggestions. I felt no undue pressure from you at all! Your suggestions included issues I suspected and some I had not.

The amount of information I got in the audit was worth 10 times what I paid.

I did as St. Croix Energy Solutions suggested and I can feel a difference in the house. It is 7 below today and quite tolerable in the rooms that were not tolerable before. The crew that did the work was really good. The... (read more)
