We Evaluate Your Current Situation
In today's economy it's more important than ever to assure that your home is operating at its highest level of efficiency. Weatherizing your home is the best place to start.
A professional energy audit of your home will identify areas where your home is exposed to air loss. Once the energy audit is complete, we'll go over our recommendations and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. improvements made based on the energy audit will reduce your winter heating and summer cooling costs.
Leaving cracks and crevices for air to leak in and out of your home can make life feel drafty and uncomfortable. It can allow moisture-laden air to sneak inside, increasing the likelihood of condensation, mold, and rot. It can swell your energy demand, adding 20-30% to your bill for heating and cooling. Some people worry that a tighter house means poor indoor air quality. While it's true a healthy home needs fresh air, it's important to be able to control when and where that outdoor air enters and indoor air leaves. Many older homes are extremely leaky, and even newer homes often aren't airtight.
