Building Envelope

The building envelope is an essential aspect of energy use. This links the building to the external environment. A building is subject to considerable heat loss and intrusion from heat gain that can, depending on the season, dramatically affect energy use.

The exterior of the facilities and insulation levels are vital. The audit will check the entry areas, ceiling and roof insulation, windows, skylights, fans, ducts, and any other areas that may cause a loss of interior heat. Most buildings have areas that can utilize upgraded insulation, weather-stripping, door strips, and other simple enhancements.

These low-cost improvements can save a significant portion of your annual heating expenses. Many low or no cost improvements, if applied as part of the overall recommendations will save energy and money year after year.
