Have you heard of an energy audit? It is a home energy assessment to determine the energy efficiency of your home. You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. According to ENERGY STAR, all you need is your last 12 months of utility bills and compare to the ENERGY STAR Home Energy Yardstick. Contact your utility provider for a 12-month summary if you don't have it or misplaced it.
If you want a more thorough assessment, you can hire a Professional Home Energy Auditor. There are different techniques and tools they use to determine where you could be losing energy. Such equipments would include blower doors and infrared cameras. Below is a YouTube video to show you more about energy assessments.
After the assessment, the evaluation would include how to make your home more energy efficient. One way to make them more energy efficient is to have replacement windows and doors that have insulated glass or Low-E coating. Check out energy efficiency category in our blogs to find out more information.

From Our Customers

We had a bad experience with a previous door installer/retailer. Then we heard good things on the radio about FAS so we went to see them in their warehouse and we were impressed with both the product and the people. We bought two sets of French doors and had them installed. We were also able to customize our lock and glass selection, as well as the decorative treatment of the doors and it worked very well. Their sales rep was very personable. He called in response to our call to set up a time and he arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk to him. He was certainly the first contact in our home that helped convince us to try them out.

Their installation team was very good and very professional. They came out, measured, and they showed up with the doors and the doors fit, which was nice. They had the materials they needed and they cleaned up afterwards. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience. They did a great job. FAS has a higher price but there was great value. Their quality’s terrific. They did a great follow-up as well, after the work was done. They called and verified if we were satisfied with the work, up to the permit inspection. They took care of taking off the labels and so forth, which were required to be let down for the permit.
