The scope of our services is broad…
We offer a varied range of services related to helping you create sustainable practices and lifestyles within your home, business or community.
Energy Audits: Home or Business
Are you tired of paying the continuous rise in utility costs? With our energy auditing service, using state of the art testing equipment, we analyze, compute and present to you a full detailed report outlining the specific areas of your own home or business where energy conservation improvements could be made. Our specialized computer software actually computes for you what the cost savings would be after the recommended upgrades are implemented. Besides benefitting from lowering your overall utility bills, you will be raising your family's personal comfort levels as well.
Energy Star Rating: Home or Business
While it is easy to claim that a home is energy efficient, Energy Star builders must back that up with verification by an independent Home Energy Rater which "In the Now" offers. Our firm helps create each new home's energy saving formula and conducts the onsite inspections and testing to verify the performance of the energy efficiency features in your home. We also are able to achieve an Energy Star ranking for existing homes as well, creating the same energy savings and personal comfort levels of a newly constructed Energy Star ranked home.
