High utility bills, cold spots, ice dams, condensation, or drafts? The Energy Detectives™ at Informed Energy Decisions were on the case for homeowners!

From 2003 to 2009, Informed Energy Decisions set the gold standard for quality in home energy audits. In 2008, we completed our 1,000th single-family-home condition survey in the Chicago area.

Since 2009, we have focused our attention on Commercial and Institutional properties. We've kept these pages live to serve as a guide for homeowners when hiring an energy auditor or consultant.

Think your home is safe from energy prowlers? The average existing home in the US uses 1.5 to 2 times the energy than necessary! The most important advice we give our clients is  to "stop guessing!" Buildings function as a whole system. Before you spend unnecessary money, have us test and survey your building to detect and reveal the source of energy waste and discomfort. We will provide a cost effective action plan for your retrofits.

Three components of energy audits are the Condition Survey, Computer Modeling, and Utility Bill Analysis. The Condition Survey is our most demanded service. Computer Modeling and Utility Bill Analysis are options when seeking Energy Star™ Certification or bank loans for energy renovations.
