A typical Audit should take 1-2 hours to complete. This can vary, given the current condition and size of the home, the accessibility of mechanical systems,Attic and so on.
We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the attic insulation , main wall insulation, foundation insulation. windows, doors, furnace/boiler/ASHP or GSHP, air leakage .Etc
You don't have to take notes during the audit but we incourage you to take pictures of areas that need addressing for air leakage It's much better to follow the inspector through, listening to his comments to make sure you understand. It's also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify anything that confuses you.
