Air Sealing the Building Envelope

By tightening the building envelope, we keep conditioned air inside your home longer. This lowers your costs for heating and cooling. Further, good air sealing can better equalize pressure in the home leading to enhanced comfort.

Insulation Augmentation

Insulation AugmentationThe Department of Energy recommends R-49 in attics, which is about 18 inches of insulation. Most homes 20 years and older have less than half this amount. Insulation slows the transfer of heat into and out of your home, and it helps prevent condensation in your attic. We can also insulate your crawl space, knee walls, and rim joists.

HVAC Upgrades and Replacement

We can advise you on system replacements and duct configuration. Early replacement of your system can save you money, and since newer equipment is often multi-stage and variable speed, you’ll get much better comfort and performance. Duct sealing is important to deliver air all around the house, and air balancing helps make sure no parts of the house are neglected.

Nowadays, you can bring the air quality tools used in hospitals to your home with advanced air filtration that provides the cleanest air you have ever experienced.
