Charlotte, NC, February 04, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Pro Energy Consultants is proud to announce that it has awarded a new franchise territory in Charlotte, NC. With household budgets tightening, energy costs soaring, and environmental awareness on the rise, residential energy audits are exploding onto the national residential landscape. With a franchise system based upon over 13 years of experience in residential energy auditing, Pro Energy Consultants franchises are inordinately prepared to meet this unprecedented demand for qualified residential energy audits.
Energy Auditors, like Pro Energy Consultants, use infrared imaging and blower door testing to determine wasteful energy use in a home or facility. First, they hook up a blower door to a home's front door frame. The blower door, which acts like a giant fan, blows air out of the home, exaggerating the air flow and pressurization of the house and making energy leakage far more detectable. Then, a Pro Energy Consultant uses a specialized infrared camera to scan the structure and systems of the home. This technical testing and equipment gives homeowners their first opportunity to, once and for all, objectively and definitively determine exactly where their home is losing energy, and where they are wasting money.
"Since the inception of our franchise system in 2008, we've received a tremendous amount of interest from Charlotte, NC, both from consumers looking for energy audits and prospective entrepreneurs looking seriously at the energy auditing industry", according to Pro Energy Consultants Managing Partner Kris Simonich. “In Charlotte, like most cities throughout the nation, there is a real need for professional, standardized energy auditing that is not currently being met.”
The Charlotte Pro Energy Consultants franchise will be open in Spring of '09.
