Home energy assessments should be the starting point for any renovation project. The assessment will identify the current energy rating on the property and what areas should be addressed to improve the energy rating. From this, the assessor will produce an Energy Road map with details of the recommended energy upgrades and the associated energy savings. This will have specific details of the type and thickness of insulation required to achieve a comfortable home. It will also include options for upgrading the heating system and adding renewable energy systems.
