No matter what heating and cooling system you have or plan to choose, the first step to saving money, making your energy system more efficient, and improving the comfort of your home is with a Home Performance Contractor.
Unlike insulation contracting or heating and cooling contracting, home performance contracting addresses the energy systems of your home in a more holistic and comprehensive way. It focuses on addressing problems related to energy usage, comfort, health, and building durability. Insulation and air sealing are key in improving home performance.
Save energy and money
Increase your comfort
Improve health and safety
Homes and businesses benefit from insulation and air sealing. Most homes don’t have enough insulation and have significant in air leaks. According to the data, if all leaks in a home’s envelope were combined, it would be the equivalent of having a window wide open every single day of the year!
The home performance contractor will discuss your home with you, including any specific problems you’re facing including cold/hot spots, drafts, ice issues in winter, uninsulated rooms, and fixtures. The contractor will then test the building to identify leaks and potential remedies.
After work is completed your home performance contractor will test your home again to ensure optimal performance!
Energy efficiency upgrades are good financial investments in your home or building that reduce your energy usage and keeping you and your family more comfortable!
There are incentives for all income levels for insulation and air sealing, new energy systems, and more! Some are specifically for low-to-moderate income households, others are for market-rate households, and many apply to both! Once enrolled, our installers will help you apply for many of these programs, but you may have to apply for utility rebates on your own. Need help?
