Inspectors will verify the quality of insulation work using a variety of diagnostic equipment.
If any issues are found during the inspection, CEE will provide a detailed report of where they were and what corrective action can be taken to resolve them. To wrap up, the inspector goes over recommendations for potential further energy efficiency upgrades to the home and verifies all combustion appliances are operating safely.
We provide quality assurance inspections for the following programs.
