Energy Audit

The home energy audit and weatherization measure is a multi-faceted program designed to improve the efficiency of the Member’s home.  A trained auditor will come to your home and perform a series of tests to determine the efficiency of the home.  The information gathered will help determine where you are spending your energy dollars and will point out hidden money-wasters.  The auditor will then make practical, useful suggestions to help you use electricity more efficiently and save money on your monthly electric bill.  VVEC currently has two energy audit options available.

The Blower Door audit includes:

  • A blower door and infrared camera test locating places of air leakage and energy loss.
  • Inspecting rim joists, windows, doors, recessed lighting, electrical outlets and switches for air leaks.
  • Documenting all air leaks for sealing.
  • Checking the heating system filter.
  • Visually inspecting the heating/air conditioning duct work for air leaks if accessible.
  • Checking the temperature setting on the water heater.
  • Inspecting attic insulation and determining if any additional insulation is needed.
  •  Inspecting crawl space and basement for any energy efficiency opportunities.
  • Providing an energy weatherization kit consisting of a water heater wrap, hot water pipe wrap, 3 CFL bulbs, insulation kits for electrical outlets and wall switches, a low flow shower head, a night light, caulk and door sweep/weather seals.

The Blower Door audit is part of our Take Control & Save program with our partner, Associated Electric Cooperative.  We partner with Associated Electric Cooperative, our wholesale power supplier, to provide energy weatherization kits when we perform this audit.  Additionally, a rebate of up to 50% of the cost up to a maximum of $500 is available to members taking corrective actions as noted by our auditor during this audit.  The blower door audit has an estimated value of over $400, but we charge only $100 to have the audit performed.  The blower door audit is not available if a Member has natural gas or propane in the home. 

The Walk-Thru audit includes:

  • An infrared camera test locating places of air leakage and energy loss.
  • Inspecting rim joists, windows, doors, recessed lighting, electrical outlets and switches for air leaks.
  • Documenting all air leaks for sealing.
  • Checking the heating system filter.
  • Visually inspecting the heating/air conditioning duct work for air leaks if accessible.
  • Checking the temperature setting on the water heater.
  • Inspecting attic insulation and determining if any additional insulation is needed.
  • Inspecting crawl space and basement for any energy efficiency opportunities.

The walk-thru audit is available to all Members in lieu of the blower door.  This audit does not include a weatherization kit and there are no rebates available. The cost of a walk-thru audit is $50.
