Myths about home performance proliferate quickly in today’s fast-paced communities, and the East Bay area is no exception. You may have heard some of the following statements from friends, family or coworkers, or on social media.
Our energy upgrade solutions are designed to lower your utility bills while increasing your comfort and your homes efficiency. We start by conducting a home energy audit to look for wasted energy and potential cost savings. We then offer comprehensive plans to maximize home energy usage, while providing detailed information about possible cash rebates and incentives.

The Energy Upgrade Solutions program allows homeowners to increase their comfort while lowering their expenses at the same time. Participants will receive:
- Energy Bill Savings: Average spending on utilities in the United States for a family of four averages to about $2,000 per year. A savings of up to 25% can be achieved with just a few small changes or a more complete energy usage overhaul.
- Improved Comfort: 15% of cooled or heated air may be lost to leaky ducts, inefficient HVAC systems, or other problems. This means money is essentially being pumped out the door into attics, walls, and other desired spaces. Making replacements and repairs will send the conditioned air back into living areas and allow a more comfortable temperature to be reached at no additional cost.
- Energy Conservation: Residential homes account for 22% of energy usage in the United States. Ensuring that a home is not wasting energy does not just save money, it also saves the environment.
