Since 2008, the Building Performance Institute–certified consultants from Zerodraft Maryland have helped home and business owners keep a firm grasp on their buildings' energy expenditures. Through the use of such diagnostic tools as blower door tests, gas-leak detectors, and thermal-imaging cameras, the analysts can root out areas where air may be escaping and energy—along with hard-earned money—is being wasted. In addition to helping clients keep a lid on their monthly utility bills, the insured team also ensures that interiors stay comfortable regardless of the temperature outside.
