What do I need to do before my evaluation?

Before the date of your evaluation, please ensure all of the following:

  • A responsible adult (18 years or older) must be present during the evaluation.
  • Your home may not be qualified to be evaluated if it is under renovations at the time of the audit (I.e. drywall, insulation, windows, siding, cabinets, heating/cooling systems, etc.).
  • Your home must be in a habitable condition.
  • All exterior openings must be sealed (windows, doors, fireplace dampers, crawlspace, attic hatches, etc.).
  • Sweep your wood fireplace and close dampers to avoid soot from being drawn into your home. Do not have a fire within 24 hours of your evaluation if possible.
  • Have your property tax bill and roll number (account number) ready for your advisor.
  • Be sure to clear access to all areas in and around your home (including the attic and crawlspace)
  • Ensure the mechanical systems can be accessed.
