The time has come to get to the bottom of why your rooms are drafty,
your heating or cooling is inefficient, and your utility bills are high. In
the Northeast, the average household will generate and lose enough
heat during the winter months, to fill a hot air balloon - Each and every day!!!
As Building Science Consultant’s, Capital City Construction, specializes
in Home Energy Audits, Energy Efficiency, HERS Certifications (Energy Star Home Certifications), Diagnostic Testing and Building Science/HERS Training. We are dedicated in bringing to you, our knowledge and expertise in building science and energy efficiency. An energy audit establishes where and how energy is being used or lost in your home or building.
Energy Audits help the customer get a real idea of how the various
components of your house or commercial building is functioning, energy-wise.
In viewing your home or building as a system of coordinative parts, we seek to pinpoint exactly what improvements are needed to function as an efficient whole, with the goal of helping you save energy, increase your comfort, and lower your energy bills.
Calculating a buildings energy usage is fundamental and necessary first step in identifying opportunities to reduce energy usage while providing cost savings. Without this baseline data consumers will not have the information necessary to make cost effective decisions now and in the future about what energy savings strategies to implement. The energy audit process is important for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Energy audit testing can also address indoor air quality or Air Changes per Hour (ACH).
Capital City Construction will provide the homeowner with low cost and sensitive alternatives or expensive replacement strategies. Home restorations and energy conservation methods are no longer exclusively for the brand new homes. Using the latest energy conservation methods we can help weatherize any home no matter when the home was built.
If are interested in looking at ways to enhance the historical character of your house and dramatically improve its efficiency, we would welcome the opportunity of introducing our services to you.
