We all know that getting a professional energy audit is the best first step towards making smart home energy improvements. But, in the time of COVID, how can that be done safely? While Viridiant has suspended in-home visits for now, we still are eager to help Virginians use good building science to make the best decisions to save money, use less energy, go solar, and improve health, safety, comfort, and durability.
Viridiant is exited to introduce our remote home energy audit. Here’s how it works. One of our expert technicians “comes to your home” using Zoom, Google Duo, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook…whatever app works for you. We talk for a bit and then ask you to turn the camera around and take us on a tour of your home.
Throughout the tour, we’ll be on the lookout for opportunities to reduce your energy costs while improving health, safety, comfort, and durability. If you have a flashlight, or perhaps a laser pointer, those are great to have along so that we direct your attention to particular issues.
As we go through the home, our technician will talk through energy, health/safety, and comfort issues in real-time, and then we’ll follow up with a written report full of no-, low-, and higher-cost improvement ideas, referrals for contractors and solar as appropriate, and useful information on incentives or rebates!
The cost is $85 and takes 45-90 minutes depending on your home’s size and complexity.
