Post Retrofit Evaluation

After completing renovations a post retrofit evaluation reassess your house based on the upgrades and generate a new report.

This qualifies you for a Home Improvement Bonus of up to $2,000 (if you have done 3 qualifying upgrades). $20 for every 1% in energy efficiency improvement. 

There is a rebate of $300 if you perform both a pre and a post retrofit evaluation. 

Blower Door Test

A Blower Door Test is part of every pre and the post retrofit evaluation.

A fan blows air out of the house. The depressurization forces air to come in through the cracks.

This allows us to measure (in Air Changes per Hour) how much natural air infiltration occurs in the house.

More importantly it identifies the specific places that air enters or leaves your house.
