AAA Northgate Home Energy Audit Service

The best way to determine how to best spend your money for energy savings is to get a whole home energy audit that analyses the performance of your house. AAA Northgate provides this service for free to homeowners in Central Illinois, so that you can make informed decisions about your air sealing and insulation projects.

What is an Energy Audit?

An energy audit looks at how the various components of your home interact as one system. This ‘house-as-a-system’ approach to analysing energy use, indoor air quality and mechanical system performance is an industry standard.

When we carry out a whole home energy audit on your house and give it an energy rating, we’re taking on the role your doctor has with you when you get a check up. The goal of the whole home audit is to assess how much energy your home consumes, and then to evaluate what measures can be taken to make your home more energy efficient.

An Energy Audit Includes:

  • A room-by-room walkthrough and interview
  • Examining past utility bills
  • Testing for air leakage locations and thermal bypasses
  • Examining existing insulation
  • Inspecting heating and cooling systems
  • Performing a blower door test
  • Carrying out an infrared scan

Boosting Your Central Illinois Home’s Energy Efficiency

Make the most of our energy audit service by preparing a list of existing problems you know about, like drafts, cold areas and condensation. Have a copy of your yearly energy bills from your utility.

Your assessor will ask some questions about how you use your house, for example:

  • How many people live in the house?
  • When are people home?
  • What are your average temperature settings?
  • Do you use every room in the house?

All of this information helps to uncover ways to reduce your household’s energy consumption.

AAA Northgate and Ameren Illinois are working together to save you energy and money. Learn more about a home energy audit, as well as rebates and incentives through Ameren Illinois.
