We can't sing enough praises about Balance Point. Truly in a class by themselves, they fully understand the science of energy performance and are leaders in their field when it comes to research and analysis.
Over the past three years, we undertook two construction projects in Nevada City, CA - an income property and new home. In both instances we hired Balance Point to advise us on energy performance in the areas of air tightness, insulation, heating and cooling and other mechanical systems. In each case they developed a comprehensive analysis, explained all of our options and helped us come up with a workable plan to get the most out of our energy performance budget.
Since energy performance at this level is still relatively new in the building trades, Balance Point worked closely with our contractors providing the guidance necessary to achieve the performance goals we set. We also hired Balance Point to perform some of the subcontracting work (heating and cooling, rough plumbing, insulation, etc.) and across the board, they did an excellent job.
Balance Point was extremely responsive whenever we had questions and most impressively, they came in on budget. At the end of each job, they measured the energy performance levels we achieved, which came in at or better than our target numbers.
Overall Balance Point was a delight to work. The results we achieve included buildings that are highly energy efficient, quiet and comfortable and with utility bills that are much less than they otherwise would have been if Balance Point was not involved.
