ENERGY Assessments ARE THE FIRST STEP IN PLANNING HOW TO SAVE ENERGY
At Energia, our top priority is making sure your family is healthy, safe and comfortable, and that your building is as efficient as possible, in order to save you money.
In order to identify potential issues or inefficiencies, we can assist you in setting up a home energy audit. During an energy assessment, a building performance professional checks for air leaks and infiltration, examines insulation levels, inspects the heating system and ductwork, and performs diagnostic testing of your building.
THE ENERGY Assessment: A ROADMAP TO ENERGY SAVINGS
The energy assessment is the first step to calculating how much energy your home consumes and allows our recommended professionals to make suggestions on how to make your home more energy efficient. An assessment will show you problems that can potentially save you significant amounts of money over time.
At Energia, we adhere to the highest standards for home energy performance set by the Building Performance Institute (BPI). As a BPI GOLD STAR Accredited Contractor, our top priority is occupant health and safety. Energia is a certified contractor for the Mass Save Home Energy Services Program, and can assist in providing eligible customers a Home Energy Assessment at no cost to the homeowner.
