During a home energy audit, Kevel uses a blower door test to measure air infiltration in your Bay Area home.

A home energy audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we're able to identify the key areas where your home is wasting energy, and recommend the most cost-effective improvements for maximum comfort, minimum energy bills, and optimal indoor air quality and building health and safety.

Our approach in conducting home energy audits is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home, which distinguishes our "whole-house energy audit" from the "clipboard audits" offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted audit as a means to sell products or services.

During a home energy audit, Kevel will inspect all combustion equipment, including boilers, furnaces, and water heaters.

Our whole-house energy audit looks at the building envelope (which inludes all the components that make up your home's outer shell, including windows, doors, insulation levels, and the level of air leakage in between building materials); all combustion equipment including boilers, furnaces and water heaters; and the movement of air within the home to ensure that the air you and your family are breathing is fresh, healthy and safe. During the audit, we use an infrared camera to identify air leakage and deficient insulation, a blower door to measure the rate of air infiltration in the home, and a duct blaster test to determine whether your ducts are well-sealed, among other tools. 

WE OFFER TWO TYPES OF AUDITS. PLEASE LOOK AT OUR UNIQUE TIERED AUDIT PROGRAM TO LEARN MORE.  WHAT TYPE OF AUDIT WE RECOMMEND FOR YOUR HOME DEPENDS ON YOUR SPECIFIC PROJECT GOALS.

Our Customers Speak for Us

  • Very professional and knowledgeable, excellent customer service. With a new baby, improving the indoor air quality and thermal comfort of our home was a priority - Kevel delivered with great work completed in a timely manner and on budget.

  • My house was very drafty with no working heat before Kevel came. Now, our formerly broken central heating is working great, and I notice a significant decrease in drafts throughout. I would say that Kevel is very responsive and responsible.

  • Excellent workmanship and attention to detail--as well as to our questions. The understanding of the whole house energy system was exceptional, and the "as-built" system diagrams were a real plus.

  • Very professional, knowledgeable, pleasant to work with. They found several major problems with our ductwork that have been around for at least 30 years. Noticing a difference already in how the house seems better able to maintain a constant temperature.

  • Great workmanship and completed in a timely manner by conscientious people. My home temperature is uniform throughout, before the upgrade the downstairs was always a lot colder.

  • Everyone was very friendly, considerate about tracking dirt into the house, kept worksite neat - not to mention did a great job. Brian even came one evening to fix the furnace door which came unlatched so that I could have heat.

  • I am very happy with the efficiency, the fit, the look, and the partial sound reduction. Indow Windows are a very good product with obvious benefits. Kevel provided very knowledgeable and professional service.

  • Feels like a whole different house. No longer do I wake up feeling like I'm camping (i.e. with chilly air feeling like I'm outside). The air sealing I think made the most difference - much more than I had expected.
