Answering yes to either of these questions is usually a good indicator that you could benefit from a home energy audit. FOR Energy is just the company to help. As Arizona’s home energy efficiency experts, we would be happy to evaluate your house and identify ways to improve its performance, whether that involves providing you with access to renewable energy sources or installing insulation that keeps you comfy indoors no matter the weather.
What’s Included In Your Home Energy Audit?
For more than a decade, we’ve helped Scottsdale residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes. During this time, we’ve seen pretty much everything the Valley of the Sun can dish out, from asphalt-melting summertime temperatures to walls of dust driven into town by a late summer monsoon. We believe that any energy-efficiency upgrades we install ought to provide real, tangible benefits in this harsh desert environment. That’s why our team of Energy Pros like to start every project with a thorough energy audit, evaluating your home’s current performance and identifying areas for improvement.
During your home energy audit, we’ll inspect windows, doors, thermostat, HVAC system, garage, attic, ductwork, and roofing system. While we’re looking at your roof, our Energy Pros will also evaluate whether your home is a viable candidate for solar panel installation, which would allow you to take advantage of free and abundant renewable energy. Finally, our team will gather data using advanced technology—like thermal imaging systems—and perform a number of tests during your energy audit, including:
- Blower door
- Combustion appliance zone
- Room pressure
- Whole home leakage
- Pressure pan
When we’ve finished, we’ll compile our findings into a personalized report, complete with pictures. Don’t worry about having to make sense of things on your own, though—a member of our friendly and helpful team will sit down with you to explain how the areas of inefficiency we found are affecting your home’s performance and show you the measurable effects heat gain is having on your monthly energy bills. We’ll also recommend a variety of solutions, ranging from professional upgrades to DIY projects. This makes it easy to upgrade the energy efficiency of your home regardless of your budget.
Any efficiency issues discovered during your energy audit can be resolved with FOR Energy’s wide range of services, which include:
- Installing new windows
- Sealing attics and ductwork
- Installing solar water heaters
- Applying low-E film to windows
- Installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels

Our team always goes above and beyond in order to make sure your project goes as smoothly as possible. Before work begins, one of our Energy Pros will talk to you about the various tax credits or rebates that you qualify for, helping you save money while improving the energy efficiency of your home. We’ll also send in an outside auditor when we’ve finished up, giving you peace of mind regarding your investment. After completing our entire process, you will receive an ENERGY STAR® certificate for home performance.
