The Process

You Cannot Manage What You Have Not First Measured

The most important fundamental for creating an efficient home is to view it as a system of interdependent elements that, as a whole, becomes more than the sum of its parts. High energy bills, inconsistent room-to-room temperatures, uncomfortable drafts, moisture, mold, poor indoor air quality, uncontrollable humidity levels and even the deterioration of building materials used in your home can all be the result of a breakdown in the relationship between the systems in your house – the building envelope (conditioned area), heating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and you, the occupants.

If there is an issue with one of your systems, it can adversely impact other systems' ability to function properly and efficiently. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can often make the problem worse or create new problems. Using the approach of process of elimination most often breeds frustration as you try solution after solution – while investing more time, money and energy without a final solution.

Properly diagnosing and fixing the root cause requires a house-as-a-system approach based on building science. At Home Energy Solutions of the Triad, we use that strategy in all of our work, whether building, remodeling, consulting, or executing home performance upgrades.

  • Improve your indoor air quality for health and safety
