Conserve and Save House Call provides our residential customers with a whole-house, low-cost energy analysis and connects them with contractors who can help make effective energy efficiency changes to their home.
Your House Call will be performed by a qualified home energy auditor who will inspect your home from top to bottom in search of ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency. The audit will focus mainly on building shell improvements such as attic and wall insulation, windows, and air sealing, but will also assess other areas such as appliances and equipment.
The audit takes about two hours and is scheduled at a time that is convenient for you.
Two levels of House Call are offered:
Standard House Call
$300 value for a co-pay of $50
The Standard House Call includes reviewing with you the history of your energy uses; performing an in-depth thermal envelope analysis; directing the installation of energy saving devices; assessing appliances, water heater, and HVAC equipment; performing a blower door test; and providing a detailed written report that lists energy-saving recommendations specific to your home.
Performance House Call
$380 value for a co-pay of $125
The Performance House Call includes all the features of a Standard House Call. In addition, the auditor will perform an infrared diagnosis of your home. The final report will include infrared photos identifying areas of concern.
If your House Call auditor determines your home needs thermal envelope improvements, he will leave you with a Qualified Contractors (QC) list. These contractors have attended the Builder’s Association of Minnesota Air Sealing and Insulation training, have been trained in the details and guidelines of our program, and are willing to meet program standards and submit to quality control inspections. Please note some rebates associated with this program are only available for work performed by a contractor on our QC list.
