Many state and local municipalities are now requiring third party energy inspections and testing to demonstrate energy code compliance.  Most above code energy programs also require third party inspections in order to demonstrate compliance.

Third party inspections can give the home buyer peace-of-mind by guaranteeing the home was built to the proper energy code or above code program standards which typically influences the efficiency or the building, operating cost, comfort, durability and indoor air quality.

Typical residential home inspection will encompass 2-3 site visits which normally includes a poly seal, pre-drywall and final inspection depending on the local code or energy program requirements up for achievement and subject to State codes, local codes and above code program requirements .  Due to the size, planning and extra building components multifamily buildings are inspected in phases and may require several more inspections than a single family building.

A typical building is inspected, but not limited to components as it relates to the Thermal Envelope, Mechanical Equipment, Lights and Appliances, Performance Testing and Water Management.
