New Construction and Remodeling Consulting
Your NSEC consultant can get as involved in a remodeling or construction project as the home owner or contractor wants. NSEC can do computer modeling based on plans for calculating energy efficiency. We can produce the documents needed for UDC plan approval relating to energy code. We can provide up front recommendations for changes in plans or materials to assure energy efficiency and good ventilation. If desired, the consultant is available for on site visits at critical points in the construction process to advise you on details relating to air sealing, insulation, moisture control and ventilation. NSEC can also provide testing of the completed house to assure that ventilation equipment is working as planned, combustion equipment is working safely, air leakage levels are not excessive and that air pressures are balanced.
Your NSEC consultant is capable of walking the builder and the home owner through the process of having a new home certified with Focus on Energy's New Home Program.
All these things help assure efficiency, comfort, safety and durability of the home – whether it is new construction or a major remodeling project.
