If you are looking for someone to help you figure out a pragmatic approach to achieving a considerable reduction in your energy consumption, or would like to get your home to zero net energy consumption we can help you get there. We focus our efforts on measurable results that can help you meet a green building certification like passive house or Leed, our ultimate goal is that the systems we install work with the highest performance and lowest energy consumption. We think a pretty good house in Nevada County California should be able to maintain comfort for less than 25 cents a square foot per year to heat and cool your house. What it takes to get your house there will be different for each home.
You have probably already heard that most homes have opportunities for efficiency improvements. Did you know that when the right systems are addressed most homes have the opportunity to save more than half of the energy they consume without any changes to your lifestyle? So before considering renewables take a step back and look at the big picture. If you want to do more than just zero out your electric bill, if you want to have a considerable impact on the long term durability of your house, the quality of air that you breath, or the amount of gas, propane or electric energy your house consumes, then you should consider home performance. If you want to work with the best then you should consider Balance Point Home Performance. You see, our goals are very much in alignment with your goals. We consider a project successful when measurable outcomes are obtained. If your goal is zero net energy every watt makes a difference, and that's the difference that we pay attention to.
Are we the right company for your home?
