3 Key Responsibilities of a Certified Energy Advisor

In this blog, we’d like to explain a bit more about what a Certified Energy Advisor does so that you can decide if this service is right for your needs. Here are just a few key tasks that our team can assist you with:

  • Conduct Energy Assessments — If you want to gain a better understanding of your home’s energy efficiency, an energy audit or assessment is vital. A Certified Energy Advisor will be able to carefully inspect your home, find areas where energy efficiency could be improved, and give you specific recommendations and solutions.
  • Ensure Code Compliance — If you’re planning to build a new structure, a Certified Energy Advisor can ensure the plans align with the latest building codes. During the planning phase, they can also help you integrate other energy-efficient solutions you may not have considered before.
  • Recommend Renovations — Certified Energy Advisors excel at providing suggestions to adapt older homes to be more energy efficient. For example, they might recommend replacing windows, upgrading the HVAC system, or installing new insulation to help homeowners reduce their energy consumption.

These are just three ways that our team can help you design, construct, or renovate your structure with energy efficiency in mind. We can also provide building envelope design services and structural engineering services to give your project a solid plan and framework for success.
