In the current economy every person and business owner is looking for ways to save money and improve efficiency. An Improveit! whole-house examination looks for and diagnoses the areas where making changes would improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort and overall performance. Treating your home as a whole system will ensure all of the parts work together for a healthy, comfortable, energy efficient place to live for years to come.

 

Most folks do not think to look at possible ‘energy eaters’ until the winter months are upon them. On the contrary, spring time is an excellent opportunity to start evaluating your home’s efficiency. That way, if your home requires multiple projects to be done before the cold months set in; they can pace themselves both in time requirements and financially.
