Whether you have an existing home or are planning to build a new home, you can dramatically lower your utility bills and increase your family's year-round comfort with the help of our specialized services.

The vast majority of homes throughout the country waste far too much energy. Most existing homes were designed and constructed when energy efficiency was not a big concern. Even when a new home is built today, the emphasis is usually on its appearance and amenities rather than on its energy performance.

If you are making plans to build a new home, we can update its design to dramatically improve its energy performance. Almost any size or style of home can be updated. The Springfield, Illinois, home shown in the picture above is one that we designed. It is exceptionally energy-efficient. The 2600 sq. ft. tri-level home has heating and cooling costs of less than $350 a year. Over its lifetime, the home will save tens of thousands of dollars in energy costs.

Next to mortgage payments, utilities are usually the largest monthly cost of owning a home. Fortunately, you don't have to accept high utility bills as a fact of life. We have energy solutions that can help you now!

HOME ENERGY SOLUTIONS specializes in providing the diagnostic testing, analysis, and guidance you need to make the energy improvement choices that are right for your home and your budget. We work to assure that your new home or existing home reaches the highest possible level of energy efficiency. Home heating and cooling costs can usually be reduced 25% to 75% by using the correct mix of energy-saving technology, materials, and construction methods.

Besides lowering utility costs, energy-saving improvements also provide important "fringe benefits." Included in these benefits are more even temperatures throughout the house, the absence of interior drafts, less outside noise, and a higher resale value.

Improving your home's energy performance can be a complicated and time-consuming task. Careful consideration must be given to a complex system of interactions that involve the following factors:

   Climate    Heating/cooling equipment efficiency
   Air infiltration rate    Heating/cooling duct design
   Solar heat gain    Water heater efficiency
   Internal heat gain    Size and type of foundation
   Thermal mass    Window/door type, size, and location
   Occupant life-style    Insulation type, amount, and location
   Heating/cooling controls    Building orientation

Your home is unique. The factors affecting its energy performance are significantly different from any other home. There is no simple "one-size-fits-all" formula for improving your home's energy efficiency. That's where we can help!

When you sign up for one of our services, a BPI certified energy specialist conducts a detailed analysis of your existing home or new home design. Every energy-related factor is carefully considered. The results of the analysis are used to produce a cost-effective action plan for improving your home's energy performance. You end up with a home that is more comfortable, more durable, costs less to own, and is better for the environment.
