Blower Door Testing-Energy Certification-Heat Plans
Energy Code Compliance
Navigating the new code requirements for air infiltration, insulation and duct design can be daunting. Let us handle everything from the beginning. We can design an insulation plan, model the house for possible trade offs (build with 2x4 instead of 2x6 kind of trade offs), air seal the building and test out with a blower door. Every project that we are involved in from the beginning is guaranteed to pass inspection.
We test your house to discover the most cost effective ways to improve your comfort and efficiency and make sure there are no health and safety issues like mold or asbestos. We evaluate the building, calculate the energy savings and make recommendations for improvement, we can even include a scope of work with pricing upon request. The 3 major areas we look at are insulation, lighting and HVAC. We participate in local utility programs that may qualify you for a rebate if you have work done.
Blower Door Testing
We provide blower door testing for new construction and existing homes. A blower door test measures the air leakage in a building. This test is required by code for all new construction less than 4 stories. It can also help homeowners find air leaks in their home. Our blower door tests cost $250 each or $199 for multiple tests in the same day.
HVAC Design/ Heat Plans
The new mechanical code adds some important requirements that if you are not adding them in the design phase, you will have problems down the road. Mandatory automatic mechanical ventilation and no more wall cavity plenums are some of the items we see missed all the time. We provide prompt, affordable and professional manual J, D and S for builders and HVAC companies.
