Cost of Whole Home Performance
Your upgrade will start with a thorough home inspection and evaluation to determine the current energy use of your household. After this, your Home Performance contractor will make suggested improvements that suit your budget and the priorities you have in your home. They will then help you choose the solutions that best fit your needs and the energy needs of your home. Even small changes like caulking and adding insulation can help make a significant difference in the amount of energy your home uses.

Your total spending and savings will be based off of what changes the Home Performance contractor suggests and which you decide to follow through with.
