New Construction Services

If you’re building a home in Nevada County or the surrounding area, it’s important to prioritize energy efficiency early on in the process. It’s equally important to work with a knowledgeable contractor or consultant that can design high-performance building enclosures, HVAC & duct systems, and more—all while staying on schedule. 

The team at Balance Point Home Performance has decades of experience with the many aspects of home building, and our thorough process will ensure a new home’s efficiency needs are met with measured results. We work with builders, architects, designers, and homeowners to build healthy and high performance homes in Truckee-Grass Valley. Whether you’re working on a passive house or just want to maximize energy savings, we can help.

All-Electric Homes

Balance Point Home Performance offers several home electrification services, like expert design and installation of all-electric HVAC and water heating systems. We can also provide consultation and recommendations for other aspects of an electrified home, like kitchen appliances and solar energy, only referring you to trusted contractors in our network.

Building Enclosures 

Our team pays close attention to every part of a building enclosure when working on a new construction project, especially vulnerable areas that are often overlooked. Our building enclosure services can include looking over the design plans to ensure proper insulation and air sealing throughout as well as final installation of high-quality materials.

Load Calculations 

At Balance Point, we perform Manual J heating and cooling load calculations on new construction homes to ensure optimal efficiency, comfort, and indoor air quality. Additionally, we commission each HVAC system we install to confirm our original calculations. For passive and zero net energy homes, we also specialize in designing low load heating and cooling systems.

Ventilation & Duct Design 

When designing a duct system for a new home, we pay close attention to the details, including airflow, proper placement, sealing, and return vents. We also take proper ventilation into account with building an air-tight home, considering every factor to ensure homeowner safety, and minimal energy usage.
