    Slide 1:Comprehensive Home Energy Audits

    C.T. Loyd Texas Home Energy Rating Organization

    Slide 2:Why?

    buildings are responsible for 39 percent of all energy consumption, 72 percent of all electricity consumption, and 55 percent of natural gas use in the United States; buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions in the United States; efficiency in buildings can readily be improved in most cases using existing technologies to reduce building energy consumption by 25 percent or more; buildings represent 14 percent of potable water use in the United States, also affording opportunity for significant efficiency improvement;

    Slide 3:Comptroller Recommends Home Energy Ratings to Increase Energy Efficiency

    If every SF home in Texas increased efficiency by 20%, 7 yr. energy savings > $13.7 billion savings are possible if consumers are armed with credible, Energy Efficiency info when buying a home or considering home energy upgrades. report advocates consumer education and voluntary energy ratings. Texas Comptroller (Oct. 08 report)

    Slide 4:Why comprehensive?

    A systems view of energy use A clear understanding of your savings opportunities Low cost/no cost behavioral and operational changes Cost-effectiveness of investments Sequencing the improvements Resources for follow-up

    Slide 5:Comprehensive Audit

    Energy Health & Safety Durability Comfort A comprehensive audit addresses energy, comfort and health & safety, including attention to moisture management.A comprehensive audit addresses energy, comfort and health & safety, including attention to moisture management.

    Slide 6:Scope of Standard

    Test Stoves/Oven Inspect Exteriors Analyze & Make Recommendations Test Combustion Appliance Test for Infiltration Test for Gas Leaks Test for Duct Leakage Inspect Equipment Inspect Thermal Values Inspect Crawl Spaces The process of the Standard is inspect, test, analyze, recommend, improve, inspect and test. The last inspection & testing is to verify improvements made as a result of the initial comprehensive energy audit.

    Slide 9:An audit should lead to action

    "The challenge is to affect behavior permanently. Information and education are key elements to change knowledge into action Expert advice, through audits, may be necessary to help people become aware of possible energy savings and measure the impact of their behavior. -- World Business Council on Sustainable Development

    Slide 10:Improvements Completed

    The process of the Standard is inspect, test, analyze, recommend, improve, inspect and test. The last inspection & testing is to verify improvements made as a result of the initial comprehensive energy audit.

    We just wanted to tell you again how much we appreciate your service. The Home Energy Rating report that you made listing the problem areas in our house and the quick fixes to them really helped out.Wehave completed some of the list so far and have already noticed a difference in the interior temperature of our house (for the better). The program that you are a part of (Texas Home Energy Audit Program) is an essential part of home owners maintenance and should be mandatory for all home owners. It helps reduce home owners expenses while saving the planets resources. It is a Green Program that is worth the moneywe spent so far. In an industry where mosthome owners are unsure of who to trust, it is nice to have met you. We look forward to finishing the to do list you gaveus and to re-auditour house to see what improvements were made. Thanks again, Troy and Terri
