Green Home

 

We belong to CBPCA

A drafty home, rooms that are too hot or too cold, and high energy bills are all common issues for homeowners. Your home operates as a system.  A quality installation of a new heating or air conditioning system, buying replacement windows, or adding more insulation may fix part of the problem. But the way to better results is through an integrated “whole-house” approach that looks at your house as a system. California Building Performance Contractors Association (CBPCA) helps green contractors identify and perform quality Green Home Energy Upgrades—our name for comprehensive (i.e., whole-house) energy efficiency improvements that improve homeowner’s comfort and indoor air quality while lowering their energy bills.

 

A Comprehensive Home Energy Audit
We start this process by interviewing you, the homeowner, to help us understand concerns you have about your home’s energy use and comfort.

After the interview, we will inspect and perform a comprehensive test on your home to determine where improvements are needed—inspecting your home inside and out, including the heating and cooling equipment, duct systems, and even lighting and appliances. We will inspect your attic, basement, or crawlspace (if you have them).  Our comprehensive diagnostic tests will check the home’s envelope and duct leakage.  We will also review your utility bills to determine how energy is potentially being wasted in your home.

 

Getting the Work Done
After the assessment, we will prepare a comprehensive detailed report providing you with the information you need to make smart decisions.  We will outline recommended improvements and also show you how they may qualify for special financing or other incentives, where available. Once you decide which improvements to make, we will help you get the job done right.

When work is completed, we will run another set of tests to show the difference the improvements have made. Our work is also spot-checked by independent third-parties, so you can have added confidence that your job will be done correctly.

 

Typical Results
Our clients rave about their home energy efficiency and comfort.  The comprehensive approach will make your home more comfortable, energy efficient and cut energy costs while helping to protect the environment.
