In the United States, buildings use one third of all energy consumed and two thirds of all electricity. Additionally, they are a major source of the pollution that causes urban air quality problems and pollutants that contribute to climate change. Buildings account for 49 percent of sulfur dioxide emissions, 25 percent of nitrous oxide emissions, and 10 percent of particulate emissions.
It is our goal to help reduce this energy consumption and excessive pollution by locating the areas in buildings that create these problems through diagnostic testing and analysis.
It is also our goal to help homeowners, builders, architects, and others understand how to effectively construct new buildings and remodel older ones that are energy-efficient, healthy, durable, with as minimal impact on the environment as possible.
