Home Performance Energy Efficiency Assessment from the Performance Specialists at Pinnacle Inspections


What is Home Performance with PINNACLE INSPECTIONS®?


Home Performance with PINNACLE INSPECTIONS takes your entire home into account—from heating and cooling systems to weatherization—to show how your house uses energy and what improvements will help your home work at peak performance while using the least energy consumption and the most resource efficient and best materials available today.
 
Using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, a PINNACLE INSPECTION certified technician will test and evaluate all components of your home’s interior and exterior.
 
Your technician will answer questions such as:
Do all combustible systems vent correctly out of your home?
Why is the bedroom cold while the rest of your home is warm?
Do gaps around windows or vents leak warm air during winter and cool air in summer?
Do I have healthy indoor air quality? And many more…

After a 3-4 hour comprehensive home assessment, you will receive a customized energy- and cost-saving action plan, identifying which improvements will cut long-term energy costs—calculating energy savings to the dollar—and how they’ll enhance the comfort your home.
Get started today by contacting one of our offices. For more information, call us at 360-920-4234.

 
Energy Efficiency Assessment (EEA)
Rather than chasing the "energy dragon" to find out why your heating bills are so high, or your rooms are so uncomfortable in the winter, Performing an EEA with your home today will allow you to pinpoint all areas of your home that are wasting money and precious energy.  This simple process takes about 3-4 hours.  We use state of the art equipment, a powerful fan called a Blower Door, combined with Infrared Thermal Imaging to locate areas that are leaking air to the outside.  A thorough inspection of your furnace and ductwork connections is also performed.  By performing an EEA today, you can fix the areas that are most important to future savings, and rest assured you have corrected the right areas of your home and budget properly for future upgrades.  Consultations and written performance of future savings are always included.  At the conclusion of the assessment, you are presentented with solid solutions to procure efficient methods and ways to enjoy your home to its fullest capacity.
