Our clients are homeowners, home builders, trade contractors, home energy raters, BPI (Building Performance Institute) Building Analysts, manufacturers, and governmental bodies. We focus on training, consulting, and HVAC design and are a BPI Test Center.

We also publish the Energy Vanguard blog, which has garnered praise from around the industry as one of the best blogs covering building science, heating & air conditioning, energy efficiency, and home energy audits.  Energy Vanguard founder Allison Bailes also has written a bestselling introduction to building science titled A House Needs to Breathe…Or Does It?  You can read more about the book here and buy it at our online store.

HEAR FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

Allison was hired to design and teach a training class to introduce our employees to HERS ratings and general building science. He took a difficult and complex subject and condensed it into an enlightening and entertaining two hour class that made quite an impression on our staff. Allison is an expert in his field, a very effective and accessible trainer, and an all-around great guy. We hope to partner with him on future projects.
