AFRICANEWSWIRE.NET (January, 09 2012) New Orleans, LA – Star Energy Audits is offering Home Energy Audit services to the residential homes in New Orleans and use cutting-edge tools for conducting home energy audits.
PFT Technique: Aside from these commonly used tests, a home energy auditor can also use the PFT technique, also known as the PerFluorocarbon tracer gas method. It is designed to assess the air-infiltration rate of a house over time. This technique involves the use of an emitter, which releases a tiny amount of perfluorocarbon gas; and a receiver, which absorbs the vapor from the average gas concentration, to quantify air infiltration.
Aside from this technique, companies have come up with innovative systems and made certain upgrades to generally used equipment in home energy audits.
Thermo Hygrometer: If a professional residential energy auditor wants to measure air humidity and temperature, a thermo hygrometer is the right tool for them. Most of the thermo hygrometers available on the market today are equipped with calibration standards to gather accurate measurements. Several firms have made several improvements to this type of energy auditing tool by improving its portability and equipping it with high-tech features, such as new temperature sensors and digital humidity sensors.
Infrared Thermometer: Another tool that promises to facilitate a home energy audit is an infrared thermometer. This device is a noncontact-type of home auditing tool that can measure the amount of heat or energy emitted by furnaces and other hot spots inside the house. Several improvements have been made to this instrument. Now, there are portable infrared thermometers that can measure various types of temperatures while allowing energy auditors to carry them anywhere they go.
So if you are looking for a company that adopts some of these innovative tools in conducting home energy audits, you have come to the right place. We at Star Energy Audits guarantee to give you the best residential energy audit services that you deserve. For more inquiries, you may call us at now at 504-383-3261
