Your Energy Audit is only the beginning.
Our turnkey service model means we serve all of your home comfort and energy improvement needs literally from start to finish. Our outcome-centered process is supported by state-of-the-art equipment, one-on-one expert guidance on every aspect of your upgrade plan, top quality installation and post-install performance monitoring unlike you’ve ever seen before. We can help you get from a leaky home with high energy bills and cold or hot spots to a super-tight home with low energy bills and a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout.
Request Home Energy Audit.
One of our customer care managers will call you to discuss your homes’ current comfort, safety, health, and energy use. We’ll schedule a convenient time to have our audit team to come to your home, meet with you, and perform the audit.
On the day of the audit, our team of RESNET or BPI-Certified energy auditors will perform your audit. Our Home Performance Specialist will spend 2 to 4 hours at your home where they will thoroughly inspect over 20 aspects of the home, using sophisticated equipment specifically designed for home performance evaluations. We will request a copy of your utility bills for the previous year to help assess current demand.
We will also take photographs (including infrared) and room measurements. Before leaving your home, we will schedule a one-hour follow-up “Solutions Meeting.” All of our auditors are licensed and insured.

- Are there any changes to the exterior of property that need to be made to help home performance?
Your project manager will schedule a one-on-one Solutions Meeting to personally review the audit results and present the “FutureFit” report. This detailed report will specify the audit results along with a comprehensive set of recommendations. Each item will also have a projected cost estimate for the work being recommended. A tailored financial solutions package will help you make the most of rebates and incentives that are available.
This one-of-a-kind report is generated from industry-leading software. It integrates pricing information and prioritizes recommendations based on how the homeowner’s dollars should best be spent to realize the greatest gain in energy efficiency and comfort.
The FutureFit report will show the savings you will realize in energy use and dollars and we’ll be able to show you how your Return on Investment (ROI) can be measured.
Your project manager will also guide you through the complex world of financial incentives and financing mechanisms to help you take full advantage of the many financial rebates and incentives currently available to homeowners.
Our goal during the Solutions Meeting is to arm you with all the information you need to make upgrade decisions that you will feel confident about.
