Design/Commissioning/Testing

Planning and design of your new home, goes much farther than getting prices and proposals.  You can avoid costly and frustrating mistakes by working with an expert that knows your house is a system.  We offer a range of help and 3rd party certification to make your home more comfortable, more durable, and more affordable.  Call us today to get the information you need to make the best choice when planning your new home!!

Commissioning is a process that ensures the building is constructed and functioning as the owner and designer intended. Deficiencies in design, installation and operation are identified and corrected before the owners move in.  This is the critical second part of 3rd party assistance.

2012 IECC Energy Code Compliance Testing and Verification

The newly adopted 2012 IECC Energy Conservation Code contains an optional path for compliance called the "Simulated Performance Alternative". This establishes analysis by energy performance simulation software as a way to meet the code. At Energistics we have over 10 years experience using simulation software to model energy performance and we can give you an alternative to prescriptive code requirements. The best part is that with a blower door test (included) you will have the assurance that the home you build will perform properly and be trouble free from the first day.
