Energy Audits in SouthEast region

I’m re-posting the following thread b/c I didn’t get any bites on the member-only forum.
Hopefully one of you will have some insight…

I’m trying to gauge demand for Energy Audits in the SouthEast region. Will this be a profitable service for me to add? I would like to get some feedback on cost of start-up equipment, profitability, liability… from those of you who offer this service.

From the brief research I’ve done it appears the insulation contractors handle this in my area. Talk about “conflict of interest”.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Its a mute point here in Charlotte, Duke Energy offers an energy assessment for free. Not sure if its the same or even close to the type of service your thinking about but the average homeowner will see it as the same and free wins every time.

Your best bet for an ancillary service that generates additional revenue is in my opinion Radon Testing even if you currently offer it with some extra effort you could increase the number of requests and revenue.

and 47+ at this post , I think it looks like no one is very active on doing energy audits .

This is just an idea, but have you contacted your local power company to see if this is something they might offer to their customers? If they do, you might see if they have a list of approved auditors you could get on. I know it’s a long shot, but you never know until you ask.

For $25 they are doing the whole ball of wax audit! Obviously it is being supplemented financially from some other source.

That’s about what killed the independent energy audit business and spawned a new niche market “Energy audit equipment resales”.
