Building Energy Experts
According to the law of conservation of energy, energy can be neither created nor destroyed—but the staff of Building Energy Experts can certainly help to control it. Channeling more than 40 years of construction experience, they visit homes and commercial properties to maximize the site's energy efficiency. They first analyze the structure, scouting for points in need of improvement. They then suggest any necessary solutions—air sealing, for example, prevents air from escaping so that houses cool down faster and air-conditioning costs drop, and cellulose insulation keeps homes warmer in the winter to reduce heating bills.
They can tackle a wide range of duties, from small maintenance tasks to the implementation of alternative energy sources, such as wind, solar power, or hundreds of potato batteries. On each job, they advise each clients on spending plans that are compatible with their budget. Building Energy Experts is an energySMART Nicor air sealing and attic insulation contractor.
