Energy Efficiency Contractor Services
Seal up your home for long term energy savings
Wesson Energy believes in a whole-home approach to home energy efficiency. This means making sure that the entire house functions as a system: that HVAC equipment is installed correctly, that there is suitable installation and ventilation, and that ductwork is properly sealed and sized. This approach is called home performance contracting.
As part of this approach, Wesson will systematically inspect your entire home to determine how to make it more safe, healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient. This helps you identify and prioritize your options. For example, Wesson might identify insulation as a more immediate (and cost-effective) improvement than replacing a furnace.
Why use Wesson contractor services?
Wesson offers experienced, fairly priced contractor services and can also refer you to specialists if needed. Wesson contractors work closely with our home energy auditors to make sure that the work is properly targeted to your specific needs and budget. In addition, we offer a wide variety of services — including testing, diagnostics, HVAC, plumbing, electrical and insulation — and we understand how they work together. BPI certification
Wesson’s contractor services are accredited though Building Performance Institute (BPI), the nation’s premier standards development and credentialing organization for residential energy efficiency retrofit work. As a BPI-accredited home performance contractor, Wesson uses state-of-the-art equipment to test, identify and implement energy efficiency improvements. Our goal is to transform an energy-inefficient, uncomfortable and unhealthy home or workplace into an energy-efficient, draft-free, comfortable, and healthy one while lowering your energy costs and providing “green,” eco-friendly solutions.
Wesson is also certified to participate in many energy-saving programs, including Quality Assurance, LEED, EarthCraft, EarthCents and Home Performance with Energy Star.
