Energy Audits Help Historic Campus Homes Prioritize Maintenance
The Greek Life Sustainability Team from the University of Michigan turned to Pro Energy Consultants for an energy audit to help them identify problems and prioritize improvements on one of the many historic homes on the University’s campus.
“Energy audits aren’t just a good starting point if you want to make a home more energy efficient, they are a good activity to do before any renovation or retrofit,” stated Douglas King of Pro Energy Consultants of Ann Arbor. “It increases the chances of getting exactly what you want out of your updated space.”
King conducted an energy audit of the Delta Gamma House and identified multiple opportunities to improve not only comfort and efficiency, but also some safety and maintenance concerns. The Greek Life Sustainability Team presented Pro Energy’s findings to the University’s Housing Corporation and recommended improvements will be included in this years’ budget. Future energy audits will be scheduled for more of these architecturally important homes as part of the University’s current sustainability initiatives.
“The University of Michigan is very forward-thinking in the areas of environmentalism and sustainability,”
Pro Energy’s team of energy management consultants help clients understand their home as a set of inter-related systems.

Energy inefficiencies and poor performance are particularly common in older homes. Homeowners who choose to investment in energy efficient upgrades and maintenance will benefit in the short-term with energy cost savings and increased comfort. In the long-term, these investments can also provide the benefit of value added to your home.
