- We identify and confirm existing green features in a home and report on ways to upgrade to a Go Green friendly home.
- We identify excess energy usage and report on ways to reduce energy cost naturally.
- We also use Thermal Imaging to locate variations in Indoor Air Temperature, locate areas of moisture, and provide a report on how to equalize the Comfort to your Living Spaces.
