- For both existing and new construction, CreekSide Energy Solutions uses a systems approach to analyze the house as a collection of interactive components. Our focus is on optimizing the building design through analysis to help minimize the energy requirements while maximizing the benefit/cost ratio. Using an iterative approach, alternate new construction and retrofit design options can be modeled to predict future energy savings benefits and compared to differences in construction costs. The end result is a clear understanding for the homeowner of total cost of ownership and payback period for reducing energy consumption. The analysis and recommendations we provide as an independent and neutral third party are based on current building science.
- For existing homes our focus is on problem solving for such issues as high energy bills, cold and drafty rooms, ventilation and condensation problems, ice damming, and mold.
- For new construction our focus is on evaluation and analysis of pre-construction plans and on-site consultation and inspection during the construction phase. Numerous studies have shown that attention to detail during the construction phase is critical to achieving predicted energy savings in new construction.
