RESIDENTIAL ENERGY AUDITS
Gunnison County Electric Association offers free energy audits to coop members.
How Does It Work?
Prior to the energy audit, GCEA's auditor will review the member's consumption history and will discuss specific concerns with the member.
During the audit, the auditor examines the building envelope, heating systems, electrical loads, and lighting. Upon request, the auditor can also identify areas of air infiltration with an infrared camera
Using the baseline data collected in the audit, the auditor creates a report for the member that identifies electric loads and how the occupants use energy. The report also explains specific conservation and energy saving measures.
Blower Door Audits
The Blower Door Audit uses technical equipment designed to measure the air tightness of the building. The blower door test measures the amount of air moving through the building. During the blower door test, we use an infrared camera to identify areas that allow air infiltration and heat loss. The audit report contains the audit results, infrared images, and cost savings measures.
Residential energy audits are a complimentary service to all GCEA members.
For more information or to schedule an audit, call Member Services at 641-3520.
COMMERCIAL ENERGY AUDITS
GCEA offers commercial energy audits to all small business owners and small agricultural producers in our service area.
After the audit, the business owner will receive a comprehensive audit report which:
- analyzes historic and current energy use
- describes building conditions
- makes retrofit recommendations
- calculates costs of retrofits
- calculates the payback period for each improvement
For more information or to schedule an audit, call Member Services at 970-641-3520.
