What is a Georgia Power Home Energy Assessment?

The home performance assessment (HPA) is the first step on the path towards a comprehensive “whole house” home performance upgrade. Customers select us to perform an independent evaluation of their home (often referred to as a “home energy audit”). This is like a checkup on your house, designed to identify the causes of uneven temperatures, dust, moisture issues and high bills. As needed during the HPA Howard will:

  • Analyze insulation levels, lighting and appliances
  • Conduct a detailed visual inspection of all home areas including attics, foundations and the exterior
  • Utilize diagnostic tools like a blower door and a duct tester to measure house and duct leakage and quantify waste and savings opportunities.

Solutions are prioritized in the report and are grouped together into sensible “packages”, using the good-better-best approach.  Solutions may include air sealing, duct sealing and repair, insulation, crawlspace and/or attic encapsulation and ventilation improvements.
