Energy Inspections

Energy inspections are progress inspections confirming that components of energy systems comply with approved building plans. By lowering energy usage, building owners also lower their energy costs.
The NYCECC outlines regulations pertaining to energy code. Outsource inspects components related to piping and insulation against approved plans. We inspect all interior and exterior lighting infrastructures for energy use. Electrical systems inspected include tandem wiring and metering. We inspect HVAC and electrical motors for energy use. Fenestration, air sealing, and thermal values are inspected to confirm structures are properly closed off.
Here are the Energy inspections that Outsource Special Inspections coordinates:
  • Insulation--foundation insulation, duct and piping insulation
  • Fenestration--air sealing and thermal values
  • Lighting--interior and exterior, power controls, exit signs
  • Vestibules
  • Fireplaces
  • HVAC inspection
  • Electrical metering
  • Wiring
  • Electrical motors
Outsource Special Inspections offers a NYCECC extended learning class for architects. For more information click here.
