Home Improvement

Comfort problems? Sustainability questions? Help with an addition or renovation? We’ve got you covered. We offer a number of resources and services for helping your home be the best it can be.

Take the Energy Pledge!
Evaluate your home

Let Viridiant evaluate your home’s energy efficiency and identify where your utility dollars are being spent. Knowing this, you can better determine what areas of your home will provide the greatest opportunity for savings. We’ll also let you know if you’re a good candidate for solar panels and some advice for where to get started with improvements.

The Home Energy Assessment uses a year of utility bills (electric, gas, water, oil and propane) and the corresponding weather data for that time frame to determine how much energy goes to heating, cooling, water heating, and lights, appliances, and plug loads.

Plan Review

If you are putting on an addition or doing significant renovations, we can use our expertise to help you meet your efficiency goals and to ensure critical air-sealing, moisture management, and insulation details are specified correctly in your plans.

Consulting

If you’re struggling with a specific issue in your home or would like assistance weighing your efficiency options, we can provide building science-based consulting services. We can assist with troubleshooting a room that is never a comfortable temperature, investigating moisture issues, a whole house energy audit, or providing sizing (manual J) for replacement HVAC systems.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say that yesterday was one of the best presentations we have had at KBS in awhile. Really a great job and some good things to consider in construction and at my own house.
