An Energy Analysis is a scientific approach to evaluate the energy usage and potential of a home or building and its components. Our energy consultant will use a variety of measurement tools, his or her technical knowledge and professional experience to measure and analyze your current energy scenario.
The end result will be a detailed written report and associated proposal detailing specific steps that can be taken to achieve the intended goals – such as saving money and increasing comfort. (Download a typical report.) Typical retrofits include air sealing, added insulation, and HVAC equipment replacement. We provide the report in person and thoroughly discuss your options.
Your house needs a proper thermal "envelope" to breathe properly and function correctly.

The blower door test conducted during the Energy Analysis allows for a scientific aproach to remedy energy leakages.
We use infrared imaging to detect energy leakage which will be addressed.
An air barrier can increase your living space and make your home comfortable.
A properly installed vapor barrier in your crawl or basement reduces moisture and can condition your crawl.
Blown-in cellulose insulation to the proper depth to achieve R-49 greatly reduces your energy bill.
