New Construction Energy Testing
If you are planning to build or are building a new home in New York, you will be required to pass the 2015 International Energy Code. Energy testing for new construction is mandatory and will determine whether airflow and air retention are sufficient to meet current housing standards. Certinspectors performs all testing required including blower door and duct testing. Choose a specialized professional for the most comprehensive New Construction Energy Testing Service available.
Home Energy Rating for New Construction
Certain towns require an official home energy rating, and only certified Home Energy Raters can supply the services required for an official rating. Official home energy ratings assess how well construction holds up to the energy efficiency of other homes. Inspector Scott Saso is licensed to grant Energy Star Certifications to homes that meet the requirements.
A pre-listing inspection enables a seller or realtor to determine any issues with a home before it’s listed—saving later headaches. Catching problems early allows ample time for the contractor to complete repairs, making the selling process go that much smoother.
11th Month Inspection
Before a warranty on a home expires, it’s a wise decision to schedule an 11th month inspection to determine any defects that may still be covered by the builder. After several months of living in a new home, previously undiscovered issues may begin to surface. An 11th Month Inspection spares the homeowner the financial burden of fixing preexisting issues by ensuring that the builder fulfills their obligation to the home before the warranty is up.
Home Maintenance Inspection
A home maintenance inspection is ideal for existing homeowners who would like to identify and address any issues with their home that could be corrected for a better, safer, more sustainable living space. Homeowners benefit from the same diagnostic expertise offered in a Certinspection to give them the insight they need to maintain the integrity of their home for years to come.
Full IR Scan
In a Full Infrared Thermography Scan of a structure, the basic thermal-imaging service provided in a Certinspection will be expanded to include the entire home to see where air is escaping and where it’s coming in. An IR Scan can detect a problem where the eyes can’t.
Full Energy Audits Using Thermal-Imaging
With an exhaustive test of HVAC systems, airflow, ventilation, and other components that contribute to energy loss, Certinspectors will determine where a home is losing energy and provide guidance so a client can best resolve the problem and save money on their energy bill. An efficient house makes for a happy home.

Radon is a dangerous radioactive gas undetectable through the senses that can be emitted from natural breakdown in soil. It can then find its way into residential homes where it may concentrate. Anyone buying a home should have it tested for the presence of radon.
