Energy Audits/Consulting

Save energy. Save money.

Up-Country provides residential and commercial energy audits and consulting services to homeowners, contractors, builders, and architects.     Our mission is to provide you with effective real-world solutions and unbiased information for your project.

Our comprehensive and independent energy audits are performed by qualified professionals certified by Building Performance Institute (BPI). We use the “house as a system” approach to identify comfort, health, safety, and building durability issues. We offer two levels of evaluation services and both unbiased and prioritized recommendations to correct these issues.

Consultation

A consultation consists of a meeting with the client and performance of a visual evaluation of the home to look for opportunities to make it more efficient, safer, and more durable. A report is not generated. It is recommended that the client tag along with a pad of paper and pencil. If the client decides to proceed with a full Energy Evaluation, the consultation fee is waived.

Energy Evaluation

An Energy Evaluation measures air leakage, locates deficiencies of insulation, and identifies indoor air quality safety issues. Our Energy Evaluation is conducted in accordance with BPI standards. The end product of our evaluation is a comprehensive and unbiased report that documents our observations made during the evaluation process and presents recommendations for ways to increase the efficiency, safety, and durability of the building.

Whether you’re a homeowner who is looking for ways to reduce your fuel consumption or a contractor who needs the help of an independent efficiency professional on new construction or a renovation project, we are here to help. We can assist you with your residential, commercial, or multi-family project.
