Reduce your environmental footprint one strategy at a time.

What happens after my House Call?

Within a few days of your House Call we will provide you with a customized checklist of potential upgrades and strategies we think are most feasible for your home.  

We will include an approximate cost for each measure and the amount of time it will take for the measure to pay back via reduced utility costs.

Once we’ve agreed upon which strategies you’d like to pursue, we will solicit bids from providers who can get the work done the most efficiently, cost effectively and with highest quality.  Our providers are committed to environmental sustainability and have agreed to work with full transparency as related to work schedules and project costs.

With your permission, we will begin tracking the energy and water use of the home for the previous 24 months, to compare with the 24 months after the House Call measures are implemented.

Then, usually within just a few weeks of your House Call, work commences on transforming your home’s environmental footprint into a tiny toeprint!

So, what will happen during my House Call?
