Identify problems and increase energy efficiency with a professional energy assessment.Get Started
About 50% of a building’s energy usage goes toward heating and cooling. Without proper sealing and insulation, the warm or cool air inside the building can escape—wasting energy and driving up your utility bills.
Even when well-insulated, the average building contains enough cracks, leaks, and gaps between building materials to add up to a 14″ by 14″ hole in the wall! Air leaks are commonly found around recessed lighting, door and window frames, and dropped ceilings, but they can also occur in less obvious areas (such as an attic or crawl space), where you might not feel a draft.
During an energy assessment, Lantern technicians will perform a blower door test, which pinpoints drafts and air leaks within the building envelope. Once identified, air leaks and areas of poor insulation can be repaired as necessary—ensuring you won’t be wasting energy or money.
If the building is uncomfortably warm in the summer or cold in the winter, it may need new or additional insulation—the most efficient energy-saving expenditure.
Lantern technicians will perform an insulation check as part of every energy assessment. If your insulation falls short, we can help. Lantern Energy is a certified installer of cellulose insulation, and we offer a 5% discount on insulation jobs scheduled during energy assessments.
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can lower your energy bills and make the building more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer. But typically, 20% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. Poorly performing ducts can lead to higher summer and winter utility bills, and can make it difficult to heat or cool certain rooms in the building.
During an energy assessment, our technicians will perform an airflow and duct pressurization test, which will help pinpoint any leaks, holes, or gaps within the duct work. Identified air leaks can be professionally sealed by our technicians.

Everyone that I dealt with in this company was knowledgeable, proficient, courteous (not to mention prompt) & will definitely recommend them. Couldn’t be more satisfied with the entire process! Thank you.
