1 Customized Energy Audit Report PREPARED FOR: Tom Homeowner 1234 First Street Anytown, OH Homeowner, Tom PREPARED BY: Clint Cravens Building Performance Expert
2 Dear Tom Homeowner, We performed an energy audit at your home on July 12, During the course of the audit, we found a number of conditions that contribute to the concerns you expressed to us. The energy audit and subsequent software modeling of your home has provided us the opportunity to present you with some recommendations that will address those concerns. During the audit process we used some fairly sophisticated equipment to assess and measure different components and systems within the structure and to assess how they interact to provide you with your current indoor environment. A couple of the tools we used in diagnosing the current conditions include the use of a blower door to measure and pinpoint leakage points throughout the home. We also used an infra-red camera to assist us in pinpointing air leakage areas and to assess the condition and existence of the insulation effectiveness in your building shell. We evaluated your current heating and cooling systems and assessed their effectiveness and efficiency. We evaluated the condition of your heating and cooling distribution system to identify any areas where improvement would be beneficial to you. Additional items that have been evaluated include appliances, lighting, water heating, thermostat settings, and other conditions which may affect the safety, comfort or efficiency of your home. The gathered information was then input into modeling software that allows us to analyze and simulate how you use your energy, assess a myriad of possible recommendations and narrow the recommendations based on the most cost effective measures that you can perform to increase the comfort, efficiency and safety of your property. The following pages depict the information that we acquired during the energy audit. The report represents the current conditions of the home at the time of the audit. We would like to thank you for the opportunity you provided us to assess the existing conditions in order to provide improvement opportunities to you. We are hopeful that you will move forward with GreenStreet in implementing the recommendations that we have made. As you consider your next steps, please remember that using GreenStreet as your implementation partner offers many benefits. We will act as your sole point of contact for coordination and implementation of the measures and there is no additional fee for this service. Another benefit of using GreenStreet as your implementation partner is that we will perform test-out procedures on all work that is performed to assure that the work is completed in a fashion consistent with that which we expect when making the recommendations in this report. If at any point you should have any questions about the report, any recommendations or any other information related to our work, please feel free to contact me. Thank you again for allowing us to conduct the Energy Audit. Sincerely, Clint Cravens Building Performance Expert Phone:
3 SUMMARY OF YOUR CONCERNS During the course of the energy audit, in conversation with you, you shared with us some concerns that were of particular importance to you. This is a critical part of the audit for us as it provides us some direction in our testing and analysis to assure that we are able to provide you with reasonable solutions to conditions that are of particular importance to you. During the audit process, we paid specific attention to the building components involved so we could reach a recommendation that would address these concerns. Following are the concerns we noted along with any specific notes to assist us in providing meaningful information to you. Furnace and A/C replacement -- Customer is concerned with the age of the heating and cooling equipment. Wants to replace so they do not experience a failure at an inopportune time Concerned with windows -- Windows, especially those on the back side of home seem to intensify the summer heat and are very cold to be around in the winter. Air conditioner can't cool the house in the summer. Concerned with attic insulation -- Attic insulation is different material in different places. Some seems to be missing. Has been trampled by previous owners House feels drafty. -- Customer indicated the back rooms of the house, especially on the second floor are drafty in the winter and very warm in the summer. Water heater not performing as desired -- Master bath shower typically takes 5 to 7 minutes for water to heat up enough to take a shower Inconsistent temperature on second floor -- Tom Jr.'s bedroom requires a portable heater in winter. Tom and Jane had to purchase a heating blanket as room is very cold in winter. Also is the warmest room in the house during summer First Place
4 YOUR HOME S MONTHLY ENERGY COSTS This graph of your electrical and fuel usage shows how changes in energy usage vary with changes in the weather.
5 As part of our audit process we create a software model of your home. We then use the utility information that you have provided to synchronize the model we created to the utility information to assure that our model is a realistic portrayal of how you use energy. The graph below depicts the breakdown of your energy consumption by category as we have recorded that information from the audit into our model. The line graph overlying the bars represents your utility costs. This graph depicts the overall energy usage including both fuel and electricity (if applicable).
6 The graph below represents your fuel bills and the estimated allocation of the dollars spent on fuel by category.
7 The graph below represents your fuel bills and the estimated allocation of the dollars spent on electricity by category.
8 CORE VALUES: BE COMFORTABLE Gaps in insulation, air leakage, and air infiltration all contribute to a drafty and uncomfortable home. SEAL AIR LEAKS The yellow and red areas in this infrared photo indicate attic air migrating into the conditioned living space. Air sealing and insulating attic, walls, and basement areas increase home comfort. SEAL OUT OUTSIDE AIR Leaky homes use up to 30% more energy than well-sealed homes. The open chase depicted below allows significant attic air and heat (in the summer) to enter into the conditioned living area making it difficult to keep a comfortable indoor environment. SEAL IN INSIDE AIR When cooled or heated air leaves the home and is replaced by outside air, the new air must be reconditioned. It is most effective to start by sealing areas at the high and low points of the home. The entry door below shows significant migration of outside air into the home.
9 CORE VALUES: BE SAFE A recent EPA study showed that the average American home has worse air quality than our most polluted cities, and the air quality in homes is the fifth worst environmental problem in our country. Home air can include chemical contaminants, molds, bacteria, viruses, and gases leading to a variety of health issues VENTILATION A tight home, with regulated and filtered ventilation and humidity is a healthy and safe home. Your home s air tightness was tested with a blower door test. The below picture reflects a disconnected flue vent from the furnace. This condition was repaired during the audit once identified. COMBUSTION SAFETY If the exhaust from a furnace, water heater or fireplace is allowed to stay in the home, it will create a health and safety issue for the occupants. Carbon monoxide detectors save lives and are recommended near combustion appliances and outside of every sleeping area. OTHER SAFETY CONCERNS A leaking duct system can create serious safety problems in a home. These include pressure imbalances that reverse the flow of deadly flue gasses and introduce them into the home.
10 CORE VALUES: BE ACTIVE The average annual cost to operate a home is $2,300. A basic energy retrofit package can reduce a home's energy use by 30-40%, resulting in savings of up to $920 per year. ZERO COST SOLUTIONS Use a programmable thermostat. Turn down your heat when not at home. Wash clothes in cold water and let them air dry. Eliminate Phantom Loads by turning off electronics when not in use. Clean your refrigerator s coils every six months. Use jugs of water to fill unused space. Use the Light or Water Miser setting on your dish washer and turn off heated drying. Turn off your lights when not in use. INCENTIVES Check into Federal, State, and local incentives. Visit and click on your state. LOW COST SOLUTIONS Switch to compact flourescent bulbs. Run ceiling fans counter-clockwise in the winter. Replace furnace filters every three months. Plug air leaks around doors and windows. Wrap your hot water heater and hot water pipes.
11 YOUR ATTIC AND CEILING INSULATION The effectiveness of insulation is based on its R-Value, the standard measure of thermal resistance. Higher R-Value results in slower heat loss, lower heating bills, and a more comfortable and greener home. Attic insulation is almost always the first priority in terms of a practical, cost-effective improvement to a home. Installing the right amount of attic insulation (typically a minimum of R-38 but often R-50) is a key to reducing heating and cooling costs. ATTIC: Type: fiberglass Depth: 5.5 in. R-Value: 13 Replace Type: cellulose Depth: 15.3 in. R-Value: 49 an estimated 3.4% on your energy use. CEILING: Type: fiberglass Depth: 6 in R-Value: 16 Install Dense Pack cellulose into vaulted ceiling cavity to increase R value to R-30 an estimated 2.2% on your energy use.
12 YOUR WALL AND FLOOR INSULATION Insulating the sidewalls of a home will accomplish three critical goals -- reduce heat loss and gain resulting in lower energy use, reduce air infiltration, and keep walls closer to the range of optimal comfort. WALLS: Type: fiberglass Depth: 3.5 in. R-Value: 9.45 No improvement has been selected. FLOORS: Kitchen Floor over crawl space: Type: None Depth: 0 R-Value: R-0 Seal and insulate kitchen floor Type: Fiberglass Batt Depth: 10 R-Value: R-30 an estimated 1.8% on your energy use.
13 YOUR FOUNDATION INSULATION Exposed concrete or masonry wall systems lose a great deal of energy during the heating season. The below-grade portion of the wall also loses large amounts of energy. Insulating the basement walls, slab, and crawl space will prevent most of this heat loss. BASEMENT: No improvement has been selected. SLAB: Your house does not have a slab. Your house has a crawl space. Type: Uninsulated Depth:0 in. R-Value: 0 Floor: Dirt Moisture Barrier: NO ACTION Install moisture barrier on crawl space floor Decrease moisture migration into living area
14 . LEAKAGE & AIR INFILTRATION Leaky homes use up to 30% more energy than well-sealed homes. Air sealing a home is one of the most cost-effective means of reducing energy use, improving comfort and enhancing indoor air quality. INFILTRATION: Current CFM50: 5,533 (cubic feet / minute at 50 Pascals) Target Improvement: 25% Leakage Reduction an estimated 12.6% on your energy use. VENTILATION: No system found No improvement has been selected.
15 YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS Old and inefficient windows and doors, along with poor air sealing and insulation, are often the key reasons your home is uncomfortable and less energy efficient. They work together to create a tight building envelope that greatly enhances the performance of your home. WINDOWS: Type: wood frame Glazing: double-pane Low-E coating Type: vinyl frame Glazing: triple-pane w/argon and Low-E coating an estimated 0.5% on your energy use DOORS: Door 1: wood, U-Value: 0.46 Door 2: wood, U-Value: 0.46 Door 1: fiberglass, U- Value: 0.21 Door 2: Steel, U-Value: 0.21 an estimated 0.5% on your energy use.
16 YOUR HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING Heating and cooling accounts for 56% of a typical home s energy use, making it the largest energy expense of most homes. A properly sized HVAC system is designed to provide heat comfortably and efficiently to a home. Heating systems are commonly oversized, resulting in energy waste, short cycling, reduced equipment life, maintenance issues, air quality issues, and discomfort. HEATING: Type: furnace Fuel: gas Efficiency: 82% AFUE Type: furnace Fuel: gas Efficiency: 97% AFUE COOLING: Type: central air conditioning Efficiency: 8.0 SEER Type: central air conditioning Efficiency: 16.0 SEER
17 WATER HEATING Conventional storage water heaters are the most common type of residential hot water system. High efficiency, sealed combustion units are achieving 90% - 96% thermal efficiency versus 80% efficiency for standard units. DOMESTIC HOT WATER: Type: conventional water heater Fuel Type: Gas Efficiency: 56% Temp: 140 F Temp: 120 F Type: High Efficiency water heater Fuel Type: Gas Efficiency: 98% an estimated 6.4% on your energy use.
18 LIGHTING AND APPLIANCE USAGE Roughly 5-10% of an average household s energy is used for lighting. It is estimated that that a household with 30 light bulbs used for 5 hours a day can save $ annually on energy bills just by swapping out incandescent bulbs for CFL s. LIGHTING: CFL Bulbs: 5 Incandescent Bulbs: 96 CFL Bulbs: 51 LED Bulbs: 18 Incandescent Bulbs: 32 an estimated 3.7% on your energy use. USAGE: Dish washer: 100% Clothes washer: 100% Clothes dryer: 100% Range/Stove: 100% Other: 100% No improvement has been selected.
19 APPLIANCES: REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER Replacing old appliances like refrigerators, washers and dryers, for newer Energy Star qualified models can reduce your energy usage by 10-50%. REFRIGERATOR: Refrigerator Count: 3 Base Energy Use: 3,102 kwh/year No improvement has been selected. FREEZER: Your house does not have a stand-alone freezer.

24 Everyday Energy Savers The average annual cost to operate a home is $2,300. A basic energy retrofit package can reduce a home's energy use by 30-40%, resulting in savings of up to $920 per year. Simple inexpensive actions such as those listed below can help you reduce your energy bills, increase your comfort and extend the life of your equipment. Maintain Your HVAC System If your HVAC system is trying to circulate air through dirty filters, it works harder and costs you more to heat or cool your home. Change or clean 1" filters monthly - or at least every three months. Change or clean 4" pleated filters every 6 months - or as recommended by the manufacturer. Clean filters will make it easier on your heating and cooling system and will even make the air in your home cleaner and healthier for your family. Don't ignore HVAC system maintenance. Servicing your heating and cooling system every one or two years can cut your bills by 3% to 10%. Keep your outside air conditioning unit free and clear of shrubbery and landscaping allowing a clear path for the unit to disperse the heat. Use Power Strips Even when they are turned "off," many products are still using energy. Plug all of these devices into power strips or surge protectors, and when not in use, simply flip the switch on each strip to deactivate everything at once. Turn off your computer and monitor when you are not using them or assure that you have engaged the power saving features on your computer and printer. Replace Standard Bulbs with CFLs Standard incandescent light bulbs use more than 90% of their energy to generate heat, not light. An ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent bulb (CFL) is one of the most energy efficient of all light bulbs, using 75% less energy and lasting up to 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb. Replacing an incandescent bulb with a CFL can save about $30 or more in electricity costs over the bulb's lifetime. Adjust Ceiling Fan Settings This winter, set your fan settings to "low," and set the fan to turn clockwise to pull warm air from the ceiling back towards the floor. In the summer, the fan should turn counterclockwise to keep air moving across your skin, keeping you more comfortable through evaporative cooling. This will enable you to turn up your thermostats a few degrees in summer to save on cooling costs without over heating. Remember to turn off the fan when you are not in the room, because fans cool people, not rooms. Replace the fan's incandescent bulbs with CFL's if possible. When shopping for a new fan keep in mind that ENERGY STAR fans circulate air up to 20% more efficiently than conventional models, and select models with Energy Star lighting as well.
