Perform

We want to do work we can stand behind forever. That means it needs to look good when we’re done, and it also needs to look good over time. But good looks are not enough: it needs to perform well over time, too—to be beautiful, safe, healthy, efficient and durable for the ages.

  • Insulation and air sealing aren’t effective if they aren’t installed properly. This is why we test for air leaks using a blower door after we’ve insulated and before we’ve put up the walls.

  • We schedule a final walk-through with each client and provide a detailed “owners manual” for the project. We also return at pre-set intervals to see how things are holding up and to make adjustments as needed.

  • We gather pre-project and post-project energy use data for every home we work on, which allows us to quantify the impact of our work on our clients’ energy bills.

  • When we need to track energy use more closely we install an emonitor. This device monitors electricity use on a circuit-by-circuit basis, allowing us to diagnose equipment problems and identify further savings opportunities.
