Our Home Performance, or Building Performance, audit is a comprehensive whole-house approach to identifying and fixing comfort and energy (that's home performance) efficiency problems in a home. When you choose HIB, a professional and accredited Home Performance contracting company, you get a member of the elite – a company who has proven that they have the knowledge, experience and skills to diagnose the root cause of the problems in your house and the ability to provide solutions to fix it right the first time.
The first step in Home Performance is to sit down and talk with you, the homeowner. We want to find out what symptoms you’ve noticed and what, if anything, that’s been tried to fix those symptoms. An evaluation of your latest twelve months energy bills will provide us clues to areas that need improvement.
Next, will conduct a thorough walk-through – both indoors and out. At the end of the comprehensive whole-home assessment, your home performance auditor will provide you with a scientific, objective view of the situation. They’ll be able to help you prioritize repairs in order – from must-do to nice-to-do – so you can solve the biggest problems without making smaller problems worse.
Typical improvements include sealing air leaks in the house and attic, adding insulation or a radiant barrier, improving the heating and cooling systems, repairing or changing ductwork, replacing windows, upgrading lighting, appliances, and water heating equipment. We use the comprehensive, “whole-house approach” recommended by the government’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program. We are truly dedicated to helping you maximize energy efficiency and comfort, while minimizing wasteful spending.
If improving your home performance is your main goal then we have you covered. If you are thinking of installing renewable energy system, the Home Performance Audit is just the first step. If we can reduce a clients energy needs by 20 to 30 and sometimes up to 40 percent, at a fraction of the cost of selling them a larger solar system, this means we are doing exactly what we started this company for. Many claim to have energy conservation at the fore front of their business, but fall short in making that statement a reality.
