Energy Auditor Testing Equipment

Manometer – A tool that is used alongside the blower door and duct blaster equipment to analyze air leakage.

Blower Door (whole-house infiltration test) – Air leakage reduces comfort by allowing moisture to penetrate your home and can be responsible for as much as 40% of your heating and cooling costs! Everblue will train you to use the latest pressurization technology to find the air leaks through doors, walls, windows, ceilings, floors, attic, and crawlspaces.

Duct Blaster (duct leakage test) – The average duct system leaks 30% of conditioned air into your attic or crawlspace, resulting in higher bills and shortening the life of your equipment because it has to work harder.

Carbon Monoxide Detector – Measures CO gas levels for both occupant safety and combustion appliance efficiency testing. Everblue's BPI Building Analyst training course will train you how to use this essential safety and energy efficiency tool.

Combustible Gas Detector – Identifies gas leaks in or out of the home.

Infrared Camera – Identifies invisible trouble spots in your home’s insulation, allowing for targeted repairs with maximum benefit and immediate savings. This tool is not required for BPI energy auditors, but it can be a flashy tool to quickly show clients about problem areas in the home.

Everblue's BPI certification training will explain how these tools and diagnostic tests contribute to improved whole-house energy use. During our hands-on field training portion, you'll learn how to set up and operate each piece of equipment.
