v What is the most important component in any home?  

  Answer: The Homeowner / Occupant

The homeowner / occupant interacts with all systems and can cause them to run inefficiently or even fail.  On the other hand, the well-informed homeowner / occupant can prevent most issues from creating serious problems.  Home comfort inspections, also called energy tune-ups or audits, help customers better understand their home and the unique problems their home systems might create over time.
