Home Performance Services

If you are looking to improve the energy efficiency, comfort, air quality, and durability of your home, we will start with a home energy assessment. Insulation, air sealing, heating and hot water systems, windows, and ventilation systems will all be evaluated.

 

Home Energy Audits: Great Information for Existing Homes

Chances are, you're spending much more on utility bills than you need to be.  A home energy audit gives you the opportunity to fix that.  Using the latest technology, including a blower door to assess air leakage and infrared thermography, a comprehensive home energy audit will point out leaks in your home's thermal envelope, deficiencies in insulation, and other opportunities to stop heat loss and reduce energy consumption, while improving the comfort and safety of your home.  Our comprehensive audit report will include a prioritized list of potential improvements, and an estimate of the savings our recommended work will likely lead to.

Home Performance Contracting

A relatively new field grown out of an increased awareness of the need to address the poor performance of our existing homes, the goal of HP contracting is to fix them. We do so by maximizing energy efficiency and building durability, ensuring the healthiest possible indoor air quality, and evaluating the relationships between your home’s various components to ensure that they’re all functioning as they were designed to. The result is a home that is more durable, more comfortable, more energy efficient and better for the environment and future generations—exactly how a home should be.

 

 

HVAC

The three central functions of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning are interrelated, especially with the need to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC systems can provide ventilation, reduce air infiltration, and maintain pressure relationships between spaces.
 

 

 

Solar PV

Taking advantage of installing a solar photovoltaic system is one of the best things you can do for your home as it will reduce your electric bill and your carbon footprint. Solar photovoltaics use the sun to produce 100% clean and renewable energy. The panels last for up to 50 years and have become increasingly affordable with the help of State and Federal rebates and incentives.
