A home energy assessment, also known as a home energy audit, assesses how your home loses or wastes energy and what measures you can take to improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, will have a dramatic effect on your home’s overall comfort and will save you significant amounts of money over time.
An energy assessment is the most critical element in the process of ‘going solar.’ Any homeowner will, quite naturally, look at their budget and want to select a solar power system largely based on what they can afford. This would seem logical. In actuality, it is a recipe for disaster.
What should be your expectations during your assessment?

A recommendation of where you can make energy savings that will reduce the cost of going solar. This could range from replacing your traditional bulbs with energy efficient ones or even limiting the use of appliances that consume a lot of power such as air conditioning units
An explanation of how you can best manage your Solar Power System to ensure that you get reliable and constant energy. This may include powering heavy loads when the sun is at its peak or reducing the number of appliances you run when it is cloudy or when there is rain.
