Building Performance is a comprehensive approach to maximizing energy efficiency, indoor air quality and indoor comfort. Contractors are trained to provide a full range of energy-related improvements including: Weatherization to reduce draftiness; insulation; heating, ventilation and air conditioner (HVAC) upgrades; high efficiency boilers and water heaters; and energy-efficient lighting and appliances.
Identifying and repairing the root cause of energy waste, cold drafts and musty smelling air will increase comfort, health, and the value of your property, while lowering energy costs.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Every Building Performance upgrade begins with a thorough inspection and evaluation of current energy use. Based on this initial evaluation, we will propose various improvements to suit your budget and priorities–then help you choose the most appropriate solutions.
For most property owners, even a modest investment in insulation, caulking and other basic upgrades can deliver significant energy savings and make your home or workplace more comfortable year-round.
HOW MUCH ENERGY WILL I SAVE?
Most American homes waste 20 to 40 percent or more of the energy they consume. Much of this waste can be eliminated through simple, cost-effective home improvement measures that will save you money.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
The first step is to schedule a home energy assessment. Our certified Home Performance professionals must meet strict technical and business standards to assure quality work and reliable results. Ask about company accreditation and staff certification credentials.
