Air Sealing Price:
Air sealing – the most important part in the weatherization of a home. Air sealing starts with forming top plates before insulation goes down. Only sealing your windows and doors is a common misconception of air sealing. If you have a draft in your house, odds are it’s coming through interior walls from the attic. $300 – $900
Crawl Space Price:
Crawl Space- This is an energy area that is ignored because it is out of sight and out of mind. The reason why so many floors are cold is due to the crawlspace in which the house is built on is not insulated. Fully insulate your crawl space for $4 – $7 a sq ft.
Home Energy Audit Price:
Our audits are underwritten by XCEL by 60% because it is such an important service. The audit allows us to do a series of tests (e.g. blower door, infrared imaging, insulation inspection, and combustion appliance test) to determine where energy is being lost. Your home energy audit comes with a comprehensive audit report and an estimate of pricing to fix any and all insulation issues. We include the available insulation rebates you’re eligible for on the estimate so you know what to expect. Audit price before rebates: $335
Audit Rebate Pricing Details:
- Customers with gas and/or electricity through XCEL Energy are charged $135 (must sign rebate over to us, forms provided at audit).
- Customers with gas through XCEL Energy/no gas provider and electricity through Estes Park Power and Communications, Fort Collins Utilities, Longmont Power and Communications, or Loveland Water and Power are eligible for an additional rebate through Efficiency Works and are charged $60 (must sign rebate over to us, forms provided at audit).
- Customers with other gas or electricity providers are charged $335. We encourage you to check your provider’s rebate offerings and apply for them independently. We will provide the necessary documentation to aid.
Home Insulation Price:
Insulation – It is important to have insulation installed the right way. The more architectural soffits a house has, the more the insulation needs to move congruently with the ceiling to perform correctly. For insulation to work it has to be in 100% contact with the ceiling at all times. Often blown in insulation can not reach a tall “knee wall” that has to be insulated with a “vinyl wrap.” $1.40 – $1.95 a sq ft.
LED lighting is one of the most inexpensive improvements. Since lighting is the most used energy source in a home, LED lights can give substantial savings on your electrical bills. Typical cost is $25 per can light and $7-10 per bulb.
Solar power has become more efficient than ever and can help not only reduce your home’s carbon footprint but also the amount of money you pay every single month for using the power from “the grid”. The average residential system costs around $10,000 after rebates, incentives, and tax credits.
Spray foam is the best insulation available on the market. It gives you the highest R-Value, R6/inch. R-value is resistant to heat flow (the higher the R-value the better). We use a low-pressure system, which is much safer to use in residential retrofits. Our closed cell foam is fully cured within 1 hour, as opposed to high-pressure spray foam that can take 24+ hours to cure. In most cases, we apply 3″³ or R18 of closed cell Polyurethane spray foam. This runs $7 a sq ft.
