Home Energy Performace Upgrades
An Energy Performance Upgrade begins with our free Home Energy Assessment, where an experienced and certified home energy specialist will evaluate your home for signs of energy waste. Using an experienced eye combined with high tech diagnostic tools including a blower door and infrared thermal imaging equipment, the audit offers a clear picture of your home’s energy consumption and is an invaluable resource for homeowners interested in improving efficiency, as well as addressing a range of issues ranging from moisture control to combustion equipment safety and more.
What is Involved in an Energy Performance Upgrade?
After we talk with you and conduct an energy audit, we’ll review the results with you. It is likely that work will need to be done on your home to seal air leaks, improve insulation and otherwise improve the building materials between the inside and outside of your home. Should that be the case, we will provide you with written estimates for any work that we recommend should be done.
We urgently recommend that you do not hire general contractors to perform this energy-saving work. General contractors do not have the knowledge or skills required to seal and insulate a home properly. Unlike general contractors, Get Green is a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® company that specializes in this type of work. Our Home Energy Specialists are constantly trained to handle the very latest materials and equipment required to keep pace with the ever-developing home energy audit and retrofit industry.
Get Green believes strongly in the whole-house or systems approach to energy efficiency. Consequently, we ONLY provide our energy-saving services as part of a complete home performance package. Our goal is to provide you with a more comfortable, healthier home while significantly decreasing your energy bills. A full-service energy audit/retrofit is the only way we can achieve this goal.
Once our certified technicians retrofit your home as required, we will retest your home free of charge to ensure that all energy savings goals have been achieved. Meanwhile, you will likely see for yourself how much more comfortable each room is, and how less-frequently your heating and cooling equipment turns off and on. And you will enjoy a lower monthly energy bill for many years to come!
