You can beat the "Energy Trap"
For many people in older or recent inefficiently designed homes the "Energy Trap" is a real and costly condition. In new houses it can be avoided with the specialized planning that we can provide. In older houses the energy problem is so severe that we have seen the emergence of "Energy Slums" Many of the big old homes from the cheap energy era have become poor investments once the energy cost are considered.
Fortunately this conditione can now be rectified.
With the advent of more advanced calculation, code, and modeling software, we are able to calculate reliable energy usage estimates for new and old homes.
In the Pittsbugh PA, tri-state area we perform Energy Star Home Energy Ratings, Building Performance Institute building analysis and PA Home Energy, energy assesments.
Nationally we can also offer LEED for Homes consulting services.
