Energy Audits

Energy Efficiency Analysis and Solutions

The Loyal Handyman General Contracting’s home energy efficiency analysis starts with a few simple questions: How well does your home keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer while minimizing your fuel use and costs?  How can we improve the air quality in your home? How can you reduce your electrical energy use?  What can we do to make your house last for generations?

We can help you answer these questions through our full suite of home energy efficiency services. Our team performs whole-house energy audits and heating system analysis.

When considering how to improve your home’s energy performance, we evaluate three areas:

  • The building’s performance as a whole and inter-related system (ventilation, indoor air quality, moisture issues, health and safety considerations, etc.)
  • The building’s air-tightness and thermal performance
  • The systems that heat and cool your house and produce hot water

Our energy auditors will analyze the results and recommend comprehensive energy upgrades tailored specifically to your home and your budget. We make recommendations about the best value improvements for each dollar spent and we can do the work for you or show you how to do it yourself.
