Home Performance Audit

A home performance audit, also known as a home energy audit, sounds technical and a little intimidating, but it's really just about understanding how your home works. The team at Wisconsin Home Improvement has the expertise and experience to show you the particular strengths and weaknesses of your home’s performance. Once we've completed this home energy efficiency assessment, we can recommend solutions to improve your home's performance—and by performance, we mean comfort as well as efficiency, safety, and energy savings.

Is Your Home Experiencing These Issues?

You're probably aware of some problems in your home that you experience during day-to-day living:

  • A room that's always too hot or too cold
  • Unusual drafty spots
  • Ice dams that return every winter
  • A musty smell that won't go away
  • Higher-than-average heating or cooling bills

A Wisconsin Home Improvement home performance audit uses many industry-standard tools to identify the causes behind these problems and many others. Once your home energy audit is completed, we can identify the best solutions to these problems.

What is a Home Performance Audit?

This energy analysis is a comprehensive series of tests that inspects and measures your home's efficiency from top to bottom. In most cases, a typical Wisconsin home performance energy analysis can be completed in just 90 minutes. We always allow extra time in the appointment to answer your questions about what the results show and what steps are needed to correct the problems.

Our home performance team is Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified, so we can provide the most complete and accurate assessment of your home.


There are several elements that are included in the home performance audit conducted by our Wisconsin Home Improvement experts. They include:


So why would you go through all the trouble to have your home analyzed? Even though their homes feel comfortable throughout the year, many of our customers are amazed and surprised by just how much wasted energy and money we identify once we've completed the efficiency report. It is the best way to unearth the home improvements that will have the greatest impact on your energy bills and daily home life.

Improving your insulation and other steps are considered some of the most cost-effective ways to improve home performance. In fact, many homeowners save as much as 20% in energy bills upon completing remedies indicated by a home performance audit, making the cost of a home energy audit more than worth it!

In addition, by solving some of the problems caused by poor insulation, leaky walls, and ice dams, your home's HVAC system will gain a longer life expectancy because it will work less hard to keep you comfortable.

Blower Door Draft Testing

If you've ever wondered where your home might be leaking your heated and cooled air, a blower door test is the best way to find out. Wisconsin Home Improvement uses blower door draft testing to find gaps, cracks and holes in your home's building envelope, or the boundary between your conditioned indoor air and the unconditioned air.

Combustion Safety Testing

Most homes are now equipped with standard carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke detection alarms for home safety. These detectors give families warnings when fire breaks out or unsafe levels of CO gases build up. A Wisconsin Home Improvement combustion safety test looks at the mechanical appliances that burn natural gas or fuel oil to ensure that dangerous gases, including carbon monoxide, are properly vented outside the home.

Attic, Basement, & Exterior Assessment

The exterior walls or "envelope" of your house is where many efficiency and comfort problems originate. These areas of your home — including the roof/attic, exterior walls and basement — come in contact with the elements and are often where air infiltration or water seepage can cause problems. At Wisconsin Home Improvement, we assess these areas of your home in particular to make sure everything is functioning properly.

Does your home's energy efficiency measure up?

    I really feel compelled to give a "shout out" to everyone I have come into contact with at WHI. First off - Jody. You are so friendly and helpful on the phone, forgiving me for my inability to "on-line sign", switching up of dates, declining work and then changing my mind.

    Cindy S., Whitefish Bay, WI
  • Tim S.

    Steve, just a side note and I would not send this if it was not completely true - Mike and Pete were both fantastic. I was impressed. We had just had other major construction and have many comparatives for the work WHI did. I would come home and never know they had even been there.

  • Mike & Erin M.

    We wanted to provide feedback on our experience with Peter, who did our home energy audit.  We felt he went above and beyond what was expected of him.  He was very thorough and was genuinely concerned about any issues causing inefficiencies in our home.  He explained things in terms we...
