Teaming Up To Do More Comprehensive Energy Audits

Posted on | March 11, 2010 | No Comments

We have some exciting news!

Ellen Honigstock Architect has teamed up with The Chartier Group to provide energy audits for existing buildings large and small!

Is your building overheated in the winter?  Does the air feel too dry?  Is there a lot of dust on the surfaces of your living space?  These could be signs that your heating system is not operating optimally and your building enclosure is leaky.

An energy audit will identify the causes of these problems and root out wasteful energy use.  Once we identify these and other signs of inefficiency, we can then help you implement corrective measures that will make your building more comfortable and efficient and improve your bottom line.

Small measures add up!

Please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss the particular aspects of your building. We will review your building holistically to capture both the easy fixes and long-term intensive measures.  Click here to see more information about the services we offer.

We look forward to working with you to make your building as energy efficient and environmentally responsible as it can be!
