The first step in solving problems in your home is an Initial Consultation. Here’s what’s involved:

  • We’ll make a prioritized list of what you want to solve.
  • Talk about how your house really works.
  • Do a blower door test and infrared testing (weather dependent). This helps find root causes to problems. 
  • We will have a good idea of the direction the solutions will take, but we won’t discuss specific solutions.
  • Initials take 2.5-3.5 hours. Both decision makers should be there.
  • They cost $200 during weekdays, more for evenings and weekends. 
  • If you’re hesitant, check out the case studies, read more on the site, or we may not be a fit for you.

Please fill out all fields so we can help you best. Thanks!


ESHP Questionnaire

  • Cell phones are usually best
  • If you're tough to catch, help us out. =)
  • A ballpark is fine.
  • Again, a ballpark is fine - 1920? 1950? 2000?
  • Check as many as apply.
  • What problem(s) are you looking to solve?
  • Moisture in basement or attic, dusty areas, indoor allergies, asthma, areas where odors linger. (No judgement here! 90% of homes have at least 1 IAQ problem, we can test for them, too!)
  • New roof? Furnace or AC? Kitchen or bath remodel? Addition? Insulation? Anything else?
  • These help us determine how much opportunity you have - is your house a Hummer or a Prius? Online you can get 3 years of Dominion bills and 1 year of First Energy/Ohio Edison. If you've recently moved, we know a few tricks.
  • Yep, this is a bit of a repeat, we find clients come up with better answers when we ask them a little differently. The more we understand about what you want to solve, the more likely we can solve it. Neglect to tell the doctor your knee hurts, in addition to the elbow hurting you went to him for, and don't be surprised if your knee doesn't get fixed. It's partly the doctor's fault for not asking the question, so we try to ask a lot of questions.
  • Wet basement, needed pest control, ice dams, mold, etc.
  • These may or may not relate to what you called Energy Smart for, but may affect our recommendations.
  • Have your answers changed slightly? =)
    Daytime, Evening, or Weekend. It is very important all decision makers are there so we can get a complete picture. Typically this means both spouses, but there are lots of family types these days! =)
  • Please pick a date 2-3 weeks out. It's VERY important both of you are there - this is a collaborative process and all input is needed to develop a true solution.
  • :
  • Can't provide a date/time right now? What days/times usually work best?
  • Your feedback is valued. It's how we improve. Thank you!
