House Characterization

Split-level with Crawlspace

“House Characterization” is a process that Advanced Energy has developed to standardize the assessment of residential buildings from the outside. Our House Characterization process will allow you to use some observable characteristics of a house to determine both the complexity level of a house, and the degree of difficulty in making the home more energy efficient. This process allows auditors, assessors, salesmen and crews to better estimate the time, cost and level of skill that will be required to make the home more energy efficient without relying solely on extensive diagnostics.
