What do you do?
Many older (and some newer) homes have rooms that are too cold in the winter or too warm in the summer. It can sometimes be very tricky to solve comfort issues. An incorrect guess can cause you to spend a lot of money and still not eliminate the problem. And who do you call? A heating company, insulation company, windows? Energy Audits of Chicagoland offers a deep understanding of home structures, materials, heating and cooling systems, and energy principles. We are uniquely qualified to determine the causes of comfort issues and engineer suitable solutions.
Energy Audits of Chicagoland can use the high-tech equipment and home building science background to find and design solutions to comfort issues. They then present diagrams and photos explaining the issues and diagrams and detailed descriptions of the steps to solve the issues. Often they will include “Learning Corners” that explain materials or procedures that homeowners may not understand. Frequently the Learning Corners include links to online “How To” videos and hard to find products.
