NorthStar is a proud EnergyStar Partner. The best time to make sure your house is energy efficient & comfortable, whether or not you want the EnergyStar label, is before the ground has been broken.

Pre-Build Analysis

The best time to make sure your house is energy efficient and comfortable is before you build. That means, planning your home insulation before breaking ground is a necessity. Many new homes are poorly insulated, requiring further insulation by the homeowner after experiencing unpleasant heating and a/c bills. By planning ahead, you can ensure your home has the proper R-scale insulation so you don’t receive any surprise bills after building your dream home.

Our Home Energy Checks Include:

  • Insulation in walls & attic
  • Attic ventilation
  • HVAC – efficiency & age
  • Ducts – location and tightness
  • Windows/Siding – condition & quality
  • Air infiltration – look for weak points in the envelope
  • Lighting

While a professional home energy audit is the best way to determine where your home is losing energy, you can also do-it-yourself.
