A home energy audit is a tool that determines how you use energy at home, where it goes to waste, and how you can improve home efficiency to rein in utility costs.
It is the foundation for home performance strategies that improve health, safety, comfort, and energy efficiency.
The information it yields can help you decide if you should upgrade your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, install indoor air quality (IAQ) accessories, or undertake weatherization projects, such as insulation and air duct sealing.

Affordable Energy Audits
Our Home Performance Checkup is certified by ENERGY STAR® and costs just $99. The audit is valued at $400 and can lead to lower utility bills, cleaner indoor air, and longer HVAC service life. Your utility company pays for costs beyond your $99 investment.
You can recoup some of the $99 through a 30 percent credit on our federal taxes. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) caps the deduction at $150 for qualifying energy audits. This credit is available through 2032.
What Does a Phoenix Energy Audit Include?
ENERGY STAR recommends a discussion between you and the auditor. You can identify comfort issues, such as cold and hot spots or drafts in your home, and help the pro understand your daily living patterns.
Auditors typically review utility bills, inspect your home inside and out, and conduct diagnostic tests. They prioritize the improvements that focus on health, safety, and energy efficiency.
Diagnosing Arizona Home Performance Issues
During an energy audit, our highly trained technicians will check ductwork integrity and determine how much air the system leaks.
The average duct system in Greater Phoenix loses between 20 and 40 percent of the conditioned air it conveys from your HVAC system to your living area. An average home can lose up to one ton of air conditioning.
- We inspect insulation, noting its condition, location, and the amount installed throughout your home.
- Our team uses high-tech equipment, including thermal imaging cameras, to see the finest detail possible.
- We follow up by giving you a customized report that identifies the issues we found and the solutions we recommend. Typically, upgrades can reduce energy bills by as much as 30 percent.
