Make Your Home the Best It Can Be

Think of us as home inspectors with a focus on your home’s energy usage, as well as its overall health and performance.

Our certified home energy auditors have the expertise and diagnostic equipment to look at the big picture. We utilize the latest advancements in green building science to provide solutions that help you make your home the best it can be.

The Energy Check home performance approach diagnoses areas for potential improvement based on how all the components of the home work together. This approach focuses on your needs and is more likely to get to the root of comfort issues while at the same time increasing the efficiency of the home. Our process also gives homeowners peace of mind that their home is as safe and healthy as possible.

We stand apart from other home service providers who often offer a single solution based on what type of product they sell that may or may not address the actual problem. We know that treating the obvious symptom without knowing the true cause can actually make the problem worse or create new problems. We stand behind our four step process that assures we deliver the desired results.

We offer Home Energy Audit Services and Energy Improvement Services. For those who have already had their home assessed or don’t feel as though this is the right time for a complete energy audit, we have established a Preventative Maintenance Program. We encourage you to talk to us before beginning any home improvement or remodeling project, so that you have all the information needed to make the best decisions.

Typical reasons to engage our services are

  • High Electric or Gas Bills
  • Indoor Allergies and Humidity Issues
  • Drafts and Hot or Cold Rooms
  • Appliance, Window or Door Replacement
  • Crawlspace Evaluation
  • To Create a More Sustainable Building

"You all did a marvelous job. I was not sure what to expect as to what the audit would show. I did not feel pressured into doing any of it. Thanks again. And I have already told friends about you."

"Our use of electricity is down a great deal, it is more comfortable, it is more quiet and more even in terms of temperature"
