What Does Home Performance & Air Quality Testing Include?

Think of the concept of home performance testing as home efficiency testing in Lancaster, PA, as well as communities throughout South Central and Southeast PA. Home efficiency addresses the quality of your home’s interior air, as well as the efficiency of your equipment — keeping more of your heated and cooled air inside the home and letting less of it escape. Our home efficiency testing in West Chester, PA includes:

  • Carbon Monoxide Testing

    Our carbon monoxide testing services ensures that your home’s interior air is safe for breathing and that it poses no threat to you, your family or your guests.

  • Insulation and Window Inspections

    Are you paying more than you need to for heating and cooling? Our home efficiency testing in West Chester, PA and the nearby communities includes inspection of your insulation and windows. We’re looking for areas that are not fully insulated — the small and nearly unnoticeable areas that are making your home less efficient and your utilities bill more expensive.

  • Duct System Testing

    Your ductwork is another area that can cause efficiency to plummet and utility costs to skyrocket. Our home efficiency testing in New Holland, PA includes duct system testing that analyzes if conditioned air is escaping your ducts, as well as how much is escaping. We can then walk you through a few options to seal duct leaks.

  • Air Filtration Testing Services

    Is outside air escaping into your home through inefficient windows, skylights, doors and other areas? Our home efficiency testing in Coatesville, PA and nearby towns and cities includes air infiltration testing services that can help identify problem areas.
