Working as a builder, Todd Russo recognized that every component of a home—not just the air conditioner or furnace—needs to work in perfect harmony for effective heating and cooling. That's why he founded REEis and its innovative “whole-house” approach, which leaves no stone, trap door, or insulation panel unturned when it comes to energy efficiency. The company holds multiple contractors’ licenses and reputable accreditations and memberships, and its staff undergoes continual training in the areas of building science and heating and air-conditioning principles. All of this in an effort to go above and beyond the standard Building Performance Institute (BPI) energy-analyst certification for energy auditors.
As part of its holistic home philosophy, the crew specializes in carrying out comprehensive energy audits—to the tune of more than 3,000 Energy Star Home Performance retrofits in 2010 and 2011 alone. It also offers services such as maintaining and replacing temperature-control systems, sealing ducts, and cleaning out dryer vents.
