Improve your existing home’s performance and save money on your utilities. We deliver verified results you will notice everyday. Our process educates you on areas where performance improvements will provide the greatest returns for you and your family. Almost all of our customers improve their energy performance by addressing underperforming insulation and sealing air leaks.
Many homes, regardless of age, do not meet today’s advanced building code requirements for insulation. Our skilled team of professionals will address key areas of the home to improve insulation performance. Homes built without current performance standards can be improved by our proven techniques. With our infrared cameras, we will find areas that have missing insulation, gaps between traditional fiberglass batts, or improperly installed products. For older homes that were built with lower performing code standards, the impact is two fold. First they started with less insulation and then over time fiberglass batt insulation will lose its insulating properties. We use the latest techniques and materials to improve your home’s insulation. After the insulation upgrade is completed, we will test and verify to confirm the improvement.
It’s typical for homes that are built to standard codes to not address common areas of air infiltration. Our infrared inspection services identify areas of air leakage and pinpoints specific gaps in the building envelope that allow outside air to enter your home. Our team of professionals will close gaps and seal areas where air is entering the home. After the team is finished, we will verify the gaps were sealed by rechecking with our digital infrared cameras. The before and after images demonstrate the work was completed to desired standards.
Colorado’s harsh climate is continually applying stress on your home. Dramatic changes in daily temperature, wind gusts, snow loads, monsoon rainfall, and intense sun all are attacking your home, affecting its long term performance. We know the weather challenges and have years of experience addressing issues that develop in our mountain communities. It's common for our team to receive calls from customers who identified issues after the problem has developed into a critical situation. Unfortunately when this occurs the cost to repair is much greater than if we would have proactively identified the issues earlier. During our Home Performance Assessment, we inspect the external structure to identify problem areas that should be addressed.
Our team of construction professionals deliver solutions to address external water management, roof ice dams, frozen pipes that cause water damage, and internal moisture control.
Modern lighting fixtures are designed to use less energy and provide a welcoming light spectrum for homeowners. In addition to using less energy, new ceiling fixtures also provide a tight air seal which reduces air leakage. Proper installation is required to maximize the benefit from lighting improvements. After installation our team will verify proper operation with our infrared cameras.
During the assessment process our team will evaluate other areas for reducing your energy usage. This includes smart home technology, programmable thermostats, monitors, and timers to ensure the home is operating within target specifications. Today’s controls are simple to operate and offer cost effect solutions to ensure your home is operating properly.
Proper maintenance of your heating or cooling equipment and appliances will improve energy efficiencies in your home. In addition, if there are safety concerns with any equipment, we will identify those issues during your Home Performance Assessment. Combustion appliances require proper ventilation and outside air supplies to operate within design specifications. Our team will perform tests and verify safe operation.
