Weatherization is a 'whole home' approach towards a energy efficient and healthy home.
Their purpose is to identify health or safety issues related to the heating systems in the home. Diagnostic testing is performed to check for gas leaks and carbon monoxide leaks. The inspectors will test the air movement throughout the entire house to make sure that the home has the "right" amount of air flow. Too much or too little air can cause numerous issues in the home.
A NTR Energy Auditor energy will develop a scope of work with the the most cost-effective weatherization services for each home.
