Home Energy Evaluation
Our goal is to make your Portland home more comfortable, more health friendly, and less expensive to heat and cool. In our evaluation we inspect your home providing report on the condition of major systems like the furnace, ductwork, a/c, and insulation. We then check air leakage areas throughout the house to identify weak points where you are losing energy. We then provide recommendations with realistic expectations for energy improvements and offer a free estimate for proposed work.
Home insulation is an important aspect of your home that is either saving or costing you money. To help you get those most bang for your buck we offer all types of insulation including spray foam, blown-in insulation and rigid foam insulation. Not only are we equipped with different types of insulation we can insulate whatever is needed. Perhaps warm air is slipping through walls or your attic. We'll also handle the crawl-space and basement? Whatever is best for your Portland home we can do.

Job Stories From Portland, OR
Milwaukie, OR Home Family Room Made Comfortable
This Milwaukie, OR homeowner met us at the Portland home show in February and signed up right then to get a whole home evaluation from us. Their family room has never been comfortable; they had to use portable heaters, which were expensive, to make it moderately comfortable.
Our Energy Consultant met with them and, after exploring the whole home, discovered their attic was the culprit! There was not enough insulation in the attic, and there were no seals around the can lights, so all the air they were paying to heat was escaping up through the lights into the attic.
Our insulation crew covered 13 can lights and sealed around them (see photo) before blowing in the cellulose insulation to an R-60 level.
1957 Portland Home Now More Comfortable
This Portland area homeowner, whose house was built in 1957, met us at a home show and made an appointment. She wanted to make her new-to-her home warmer. Our Energy Consultant met with her and investigated the attic. He founds air leakage around ductwork, soffits, and the chimney where air she was heating in her home was escaping to the attic and to the outside. The existing insulation in the attic was not at an adequate level, too.
Our crew sealed the leaks (see photo showing sealing around ductwork) and blew in cellulose to the R-49 level that is the minimum recommended for efficiency. Her home is now much more comfortable.
