A relatively new field grown out of an increased awareness of the need to address the poor performance of our existing homes, the goal of Home Performance contracting is to fix them. We do so by maximizing energy efficiency and building durability, ensuring the healthiest possible indoor air quality, and evaluating the relationships between your home’s various components to ensure that they’re all functioning as they were designed to.
Is your home cold, drafty, or uncomfortably hot? Do you have high energy bills, spots on your roof where the snow melts more quickly, peeling paint or excessive dust?
These are common problems found in homes that may not be as energy efficient as they could be and can benefit from a whole-house energy improvement. Investing in home performance work can make your home more comfortable, and at the same time improve its energy efficiency – saving you money on utility bills and helping to protect the environment, too.
