As a certified building analyst, home-energy specialist, and EcoBroker-certified affiliate, John J. Redmond knows that energy efficiency is more than an environmentally sound practice—it also saves homeowners money. Along with his partner Jay Gardner, Redmond has created a home-energy-consulting company that diagnoses inefficiencies and offers custom, low-cost solutions. Redmond is also known to share his expertise with the community Sunday mornings on a radio show focusing on energy efficiency.
In free home-energy analyses, Building Performance Institute and RESNET-certified technicians sleuth out energy and ventilation problems and develop custom plans to fix them, which may include air and duct sealing, window replacement, insulation, and heating- and air-conditioning-efficiency services. Certified contractors from Home Energy Solutions’ fully vetted network can perform repairs or improvements. After contractors complete their projects, Home Energy Solutions’ technicians return to homes to perform a second energy analysis to demonstrate improved household efficiency and reveal the punch line to knock-knock jokes they began on their first visit.
