Green Home Ownership for SE Wisconsin

The first step towards cutting both carbon emissions and energy bills at home is to determine where the home could most benefit from upgrades.

“Should we focus on solar panels (renewable energy), new windows, an energy-efficient water heater, insulation or making our home less drafty?” That is what home energy assessments are all about.

More and more people want to live in energy-efficient homes, with a clear roadmap for becoming even more energy-efficient. And don’t forget the added bonus of reducing energy costs!

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) tests can be add-ons to either standard or advanced energy assessments of your home. With IAQ tests, monitors are positioned around your home for 5-7 days that measure humidity, volatile organic compounds, carbon dioxide levels, radon and more. They can help you identify why certain rooms are uncomfortable or if there are possible health concerns.

According to the EPA, "a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities."
