Although my work was much different from traditional energy auditing my checklist was the absolute heart of my efforts. It seemed like every job I did added several new items to look for, far beyond what is needed for just an energy evaluation. But, having this information back in the office made a world of difference. Combine a mature checklist with lots of pictures, both digital and infrared and you will be way ahead with any approach to energy auditing.
I usually create my own check-list to get an idea of the work important to me and accordingly prioritize the work. Since my business deal with doors and windows, It helps in adding great value to the work as everything gets completed on their time with no extra burden.
Hi Joe, thanks for responding. Did the checklist evolve over time? Or is it something you picked up and adapted for your business? Can you share any advice with other folks in the home performance industry?
Hi Jim, as we know nothing remain static in business and need to go along with changes to cope up with the change in business scenario. So, My check list do changes with new demands and requirement. Though certain category remain unchanged too.
