25 Years of Remodeling &
Welcome to our Website
We are building performance contractors and professional remodelers.
When you work with Energy Efficiency First, you get the benefit of working with Bernie Miller, our owner, a third generation, experienced residential remodeler and renovator who also knows building science. He manages our team of energy auditors, qualified technicians, and talented carpenters.
We provide Performance Contracting services. Performance Contracting has become known as Energy Performance Contracting, Home Performance Contracting, and Building Performance Contracting.
In the home or small business, Performance Contracting starts by evaluating the structure as a system. We look at everything from lighting to insulation, from the furnace in the basement to the air sealing in the attic, to solve problems ranging from moisture to energy waste and beyond. Performance contracting is a relatively new field that grew out of an increased awareness that our existing infrastructure is performing poorly and needs to be addressed. The goal of Performance Contracting is to fix poorly performing structures.
We do this by determining what is needed to maximize energy efficiency, comfort, and building durability, and to ensure the healthiest possible indoor air quality. We evaluate the structure as a system and the relationships between its various components to determine whether they are functioning as they should. When we identify problems, we put our resources to work to fix them.
We use our building-science expertise to perform energy audits. We combine our construction experience with principles of building science, and we embrace emerging energy-efficiency technologies. By doing this, we provide customers with a complete set of performance contracting services -- weatherization, insulation services, energy performance upgrades, and addressing building durability. When we identify problems, we put our resources to work to fix them. The result is a home or small business that is more durable, more comfortable and healthy, more energy efficient, and better for the environment and future generations—exactly how a home or small business should be.
We are also craftsmen specializing in remodeling. We incorporate energy performance into our remodeling projects and offer affordable green-remodeling options.
We are locally and family owned. We operate our business in an eco-friendly manner and work to support others in our local economy.
We provide excellent customer service. We'll guide you through our process, explain what we do, how we do it, and why. We warranty our work and are fully licensed, bonded, and insured through its partnership with Quality Renovation and Carpentry, a general contracting firm also owned and operated by Bernie Miller.
When you work with our team, rest assured you will get our best effort, as we apply our knowledge and skill to enhance the energy efficiency, health & comfort, and durability of your structure. Our goal is to deliver comfort and energy savings, making both you and the planet happy.
