We consider thermal performance and energy efficiency for most projects. If it can become part of the scope of work, it will become part of the conversation.
How far you want to take it is up to you, but it’s important that you know what’s possible. Our services include: energy audits, efficiency upgrades as a component of other work, and deep energy retrofits.
An energy audit is the best way to assess a building’s thermal performance and energy use. During the audit we will:
In an ideal world we would all live in high-performance homes already, but most homes have opportunities for improvement. Some upgrades can be done as discrete tasks, while it’s more cost effective to make some improvements in conjunction with other work. We work with clients to develop overall plans for their homes. These plans can address both short- and long-term goals, and then we figure out the most cost-effective approach to doing the work.
Deep Energy Retrofits
This type of project involves retrofitting an existing building to meet a very high standard of thermal performance and energy efficiency. It’s possible to achieve 50-70% improvements in efficiency. The comfort and pleasure of living in a home that has received this kind of attention is remarkable.
