HINT: That treasure? It's probably in your attic. And no, we don't mean some dusty old thing that's actually a priceless heirloom like on Antiques Roadshow. We mean that there are simple, affordable solutions - such as adding insulation to your attic - that can generate a huge return on investment over the long-term. Learn more here.

Smart homeowners are taking advantage of the saving potential of their single greatest investment - their home. We can help you navigate the often confusing landscape of improving your home's energy efficiency by breaking it down into simple, cost-effective options. That way you know exactly what you're getting for your time and money.

What We Do:

  • Home Performance Assessments - Blower Door, Infrared Thermography, Visual Inspection
  • Incentive Profiling - Local/State/Federal Tax Credits and Rebates, Return on Investment Projections
  • Annual Performance Maintenance
  • Renovations and Additions Design - Focus on whole building performance
  • LEED/Energy Star/EarthCraft Virginia Certification Administration
  • Architecture/Construction Liaison - Focus on building/site performance goals

How We Do It:

  1. During our initial consultation, we perform a building and design summary assessment where we collect data on your home's current energy performance, as well as determine your functional, aesthetic and budget needs.
  2. We then create a customized set of services to offer the highest short and long-term return on investment. We meet with you to discuss your options and determine the best solution for your home and budget.
  3. Now is the fun part. We oversee the entire project to perform the specific energy efficiency and design improvements, and then test your home again to measure the results.
  4. But it's not over yet! We then help you find any available rebates or tax credits that will help you pay for your project. And then we review your results with you to show your immediate value and benefits, as well as what to expect in the future.

Smart homeowners know that investing in their home's performance will result in a safer, healthier and more efficient home that will begin providing an immediate and compounding return on investment. So, aren't you ready to get started?
