Home Performance Evaluation & Energy Assessments

Blower Roof Testing

A blower door uses a powerful fan that we will mount in the frame of one of your exterior doors. The purpose of the fan is to pull air out of your home, which will lower the pressure inside, allowing the outside air pressure to flow through any unsealed cracks and openings that exist in your home. Our trained specialist will walk through your home with a smoke pencil that will allow them to pinpoint your troublesome areas when conducting the energy assessment.

FLIR Thermography Audit To Identify Air Leaks

We use a FLIR Infrared Imager that will take thermographic scans of your home which measure surface temperatures by using infrared video. Using this energy efficiency audit, in conjunction with our blower door testing, will help find air leaks in your home by showing up as black streaks on the infrared imager. This technique can also help detect roof leaks because wet insulation conducts heat faster than dry insulation.

 

Energy Audit Checklist For Homeowners 

  • If you burn wood in your home, make sure that your fire is completely out. This includes even any coals, before your specialist arrives.
  • Make sure that your attic, crawl space, closets and any unused rooms are easily accessible.
  • All air inlets in your home will need to be closed such as fireplace dampers, doors, windows etc.
  • Fossil fuel appliances will need to be shut down temporarily, so they don’t fire during the test.
  • Be sure to set aside a few hours for the test to allow the technicians to be as thorough as possible.

Our Insulation Services Reviews:

"We had a great experience with Lindus. The communication has been great. When I had a question I received a return email or phone call quickly. When Lindus employees were at our home, they explained what they were doing in great detail, my questions were always satisfactory answered. I will gladly continue to refer Lindus to friends and neighbors."

"Lindus did an excellent job on our shingle and LeafGuard® Gutter replacement after this spring’s hail storm. Lindus had previously replaced our windows, doors, siding, and insulation, so we are sold on the quality of their work.  My wife and I were home during the roofing process and it was noisy from the start. Later in the afternoon, we noticed the silence.  No more thumping!! We went outside and the area around our home was immaculate!! Not only did they do a great job on the roof, they did an excellent cleanup. The next day the crew came to remove and replace our LeafGuard® system. That installation went smoothly as well."

"Eric is great. We used him on my mom’s house for several projects: new doors, windows, re-insulating the inside of the roof in upstairs bedrooms, tearing down & rebuilding the garage. My sister also used Eric to install LeafGuard® on her own house, build her a new deck, and install a metal roof. We recently had a meeting to discuss building a new deck for me, to replace the old one. We will be using no-maintenance materials, so no more sanding, staining, painting."

We used Lindus for a rather complicated attic re-insulation project. They are highly competent and do great work!

"Jason and the insulating crew did a great job. I told Jason it looked like nothing was done when he finished cleaning, which is a very good thing.  The insulating crew did have a difficult time working under the bay window. They usually hold their spray gun about 2 ft. away from the surface. In our location, they only had a foot at the most. So, there was a lot of blowback, clean-up, and additional layers to get the final result."

"We hired Lindus for attic insulation and new LeafGuard® Gutters. We had an issue arise a couple years after the work was completed. I called Lindus and had no problem scheduling someone to review and create a plan. Randal has worked diligently to get to the bottom of the problem and fix it permanently. The company truly does stand by their product, a claim that is not always realized, but with Lindus has proven to be true. I am so appreciative and would recommend them to anyone."
