Residential Comfort & Energy Efficiency

Sunday, November 10 2019

Your home is a complex system.  Before you do work to any specific part, you need to know a few key building science principles.  There is nothing more frustrating than learning that you should have done this or you should have done that...after you already paid for the wrong solution.  This happens all too often in home remodeling and retro fitting because there are so many different trades involved and unfortunately, incorrect or outdated ways of thinking are guiding contractors and homeowners to the wrong solutions.    As a certified Building Analyst through the Building Performance Institute with over 500 home energy audits conducted and with over fifteen years of home remodeling experience, I understand and specialize in all of the remodeling trades with a focus on building science principles to lead the way and guide us to the source of the problem to find the best possible solution.  Here is an example of how this can work.
