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.

As a conservation professional, energy efficiency is very important to me and I got an energy audit with Viridiant soon after moving. As a first time homebuyer, learning the ins and outs of our home’s energy consumption was daunting but Andrew really broke it down for us in a way that was understandable and engaging. The prioritized report provided afterwards was comprehensive but easy to navigate and we will definitely refer to it often. I found the whole process fascinating and am looking forward to making the recommended improvements to our home!

Andrew’s knowledge of 1930’s homes was really helpful. He was able to identify a number of easy fixes, as well as help talk us through accomplishing the more intensive ones. As new homeowners, his encouraging demeanor was so lovely. We felt comfortable asking questions and trusted his recommendations. We have continued to use him as a resource as we move forward with solar installation.

Andrew was incredibly knowledgeable. I learned a lot about my own home just from walking around my house with him. The comprehensive list on how to become net zero is what I find most valuable. I plan to do several of the suggestions immediately and then continue to work my way down the list over time.
