We have many techniques to examine indicators to categorize houses with excessive or abnormal amounts of heat from the house.

Over the years after significant development, our professionals use a combination of imaging, characteristics of similar house in the neighborhood, monthly billing rates, and other more subtle techniques to categorize energy use, energy inefficiencies, and weatherization improvement opportunities.

We typically work with our clients to make sure we understand the issues and needs, before we tailor our solutions.
