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.

Job Stories From Portland, OR
Water Damaged Attic Repaired in Portland, OR

This Portland, OR homeowner found us online and called to receive an estimate on repairing the water damage in their attic.  While our Energy Consultant was there, he also looked under the home and saw the very damaged, and in some places not even connected, ductwork for their heating system. (see photo)

In the attic, our Insulation Crew removed the damaged insulation, treated the roof deck for mold, replaced the damaged sheet rock, and blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation.  The team also removed all the flex ductwork under the home and replaced it with new insulated flex ductwork.  The client was impressed with our crew’s professionalism.

Portland, OR Home Will No Longer Be Hot in the Summer

This Portland, OR homeowner found us online and called for an entire home evaluation to help uncover the reasons their home was very, very hot during the summer months. They called in the spring to get a jump on it before they had to go through another summer being uncomfortable in their own home.

Our Energy Consultant discovered, in his thorough evaluation of their home, that the attic was the culprit (see photo showing how some of attic was not even covered).  Our insulation crew sealed the air leaks in the attic and then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-60 level.  The homeowners were very happy and appreciated the full clean-up that our crew did.

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.

Work Requests From Portland, OR
in Portland
Initially, I'd like an estimate on insulating a 1100 square foot vented crawl space. Preferably spray foam under the boards. It's dry down there, no mould, no rot. Ball-park figure preferred before coming out, thanks.
SE Alder St. in Portland
I have a bedroom added onto my house with a crawl space below. I would like to have vapor barrier laid down and insulation added in the crawl space since the bedroom floor gets really cold in the winter. Room size is about 10' by 18' or so.

Need spray insulation installed from the outside of the home.
SE Harrison St in Portland
Remodeling an old home and want to insulate entire home if possible. Some of the walls are not going to be opened up and interested in pumping in cellulose into the wall cavities.
SW Seymour Court in Portland
Our master bedroom on the main floor of our daylight basement ranch home is too hot in summer and too cold in winter. I suspect air leakage from window trim area, possibly insufficient attic insulation, and possibly missing or inferior exterior wall insulation. Our 1956 home has new ducting and late model heat pump, and other rooms in house have ideal temperatures. Thank you.

N Willamette Blvd in Portland
House stays hot in summer time. Had a new roof put on new windows. And house still stays hot. Winter is ok as long as we keep thermostat at 72 degrees. But still gets cold if temp drops below freezing.. Can't spend a whole lot of $$$ either. A buddy ssif insulation in roof is insufficient.

My only concern at this time will be the start date for the project. I understand it can take up to three days to complete. We are going on a cruise in the near future and if at all possible I would like to delay the start of the work until the week of 10 April 2017.
