High energy bills, uneven temperatures from room-to-room, drafts, moisture, mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, pest infestations, seemingly uncontrollable humidity levels and even premature deterioration of building materials can all be the result of a breakdown in the relationship between the systems in your house – the building envelope (shell), heating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and you, the occupants.

If one system has a problem, it impacts the other systems’ ability to function properly. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can actually make the problem worse or create new problems. The process of elimination approach just causes frustration as you try solution after solution – investing more time, money and energy – without resolution.

Properly diagnosing and fixing the root cause requires a house-as-a-system approach based on building science.

That’s exactly what Comfortable Efficiency, a BPI certified home performance contractor is trained to do. We conduct a comprehensive whole-home assessment to find the real problems, then prescribe and prioritize improvements that make the system as a whole function at its best.


Energy efficient homes are an investment for the future as they can increase your home’s resale value and reduced your utility bills. Additionally, home performance improvements can dramatically increase your family’s comfort when your home is properly insulated and air sealed.

A whole house inspection will allow us to test for  safe and healthy indoor air quality and durability of your homes structure. During our home inspection we check for mold, rot, asbestos, and carbon monoxide levels. We will also measure the efficiency of your existing home appliances. 

Our goal is to help you maximize the comfort, health, safety, durability and energy efficiency of your home.
