One of the things that scares people about updating or improving their heating and cooling systems is the cost.  While we try to find the most cost-effective solution for you, many are under the impression that they are throwing away money.  Our clients are generally pleasantly surprised when they start receiving their utility bills after we’ve done our work.  They find that they’re spending less money to improve their home environment, and after a few years, they’ve paid off what they spent for us to come in!

One of the things that we do to try and improve both your climate and your savings is take a critical look at where you’re losing money.  Things like drafty windows and lack of window shades do more harm to your budget than a new heat pump or air conditioner ever will.  To improve this service to you, we’ve hired an expert.

The newest member of our team is Josh Keever.  Josh in a home energy consultant.  He began his career at Honeywell, and was so good at what he did that they contracted him out to Dominion Virginia Power.  Dominion tasked them with designing and implementing their Home Energy Check-Up program.  This provides you with a personalized report with recommendations for things you can do to improve your energy efficiency.  This may mean new equipment or weather stripping.  It may mean something as simple as changing light bulbs.

Not only is Josh well-versed in the Check-Up program, he can make many of these changes for you.  Whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, after a visit from Josh, savings will start heading your way!

Here are some of the things that you can expect when Josh comes to your home:
