Home energy audits are a complete investigation of the building including air quality, wall materials, insulation, air tightness, etc
BTU HEATING/COOLING CALCULATIONS
Helping all our clients size new heating/cooling equipment via BTU calcs. What separates BSG is our whole-building approach for accuracy
GAS & PROPANE LEAK & CO TESTING
Gas lines can leak at any time with expansion/contraction. Leaks can be dangerous and become expensive over time

SOLID SCIENTIFIC DATA
Building science group does not make promisses we can’t keep, and we don’t speak on a topic without having a deep knowledge of it. We use real scientific data for all designs and analysis. Real computable math and data is the language we speak, because everything else is amateur. We have solved many building performance issues for our clients (i.e - leaking skylights, mold and mildew, water infiltration, condensation, etc) We are a group of professionals who can help avoid costly mistakes by using our years of experience and high-tech data collection equipment to understand what makes a good building, and what does not.
BLOWER DOOR TESTING / AIR TIGHTNESS MEASUREMENTS
Building a new building or remodeling an old one in NYS requires a blower door test that meets NYS 2020 Energy Code. Building Science Group, LLC has the knowledge, equipment, and certification to either pressurize or depressurize your building to 50 pascals of pressure to find several measurements:
(The total volume of building being lost to the outside that must be heated or cooled per hour. Less air exchanges per hour means less money spent. More air exchanges per hour means more money wasted heating or cooling the outside environment).
The blower door in conjunction with smoke pens, and/or thermal imaging cameras can help find the main areas of air infiltration and help develop an action plan or priority.
Our findings report highlights how your building measures up to the current 2020 NYS Energy Code for existing structures. Our report offers specific / prioritized solutions for remedies to start saving.
THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA
We use top of the line thermal imaging to make visible the hidden temperature inefficiencies of your building.
The camera can pick up areas of inefficiency that we would not otherwise be able to feel or sense. This is best used in conjunction with the blower door test.
Temperature differentials are normal in a homes different door, windows, walls, floors, and ceilings. Knowing how much differential is vital to finding out how much energy is being lost through the thermodynamic of conduction.
