A home energy survey is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, healthier home. Alabama Energy Doctors offers home energy audits in parts of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
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 surveys is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home, which distinguishes our "whole-house energy survey" from the "clipboard audits" offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted survey as a means to sell products or services. For example window companies. Windows have a 20-70 year payback in Dothan Alabama. Please call us for a second opinion so that you can maximize the return on your investment, have adequate fresh air, for good indoor air quality, and be safe from gas leaks and carbon monoxide.
Our whole-house energy survey 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 for gas leaks and carbon monoxide; 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 survey, 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, a computerized solar site assesment among other tools. We provide you with upgrades prioritized for safety, indoor air quality and energy efficiency savings pay back.

See how different the 2nd reflection looks in terms of color? That red color on the 2nd reflecting flame indicates a low e coating is not on the correct surface for windows in southern Alabama. This is a northern window that was installed in the south. The low e coating should be on the inside of the outer pane of glass so that it reflects heat to the outside world.
