Is your home too hot, too cold, drafty, or uncomfortable?

This could be caused by:

  • Leaks in the internal duct system
  • Little or no insulation
  • Air leakage through building envelope
  • Inefficiency or improperly sized HVAC system

Having an inefficient home is like throwing money out the window.

  • Your home is your biggest investment; becoming energy efficient saves thousands of dollars over its lifetime.
  • The utilities market is uncertain; becoming more efficient protects you from rising energy prices
  • We will show you where improvements can be made.

Case Studies

"We would definitely recommend having an energy audit done by Efficiency Matters. Greg was knowledgeable, professional and honest. We really appreciated that he told us about many improvements that we could do ourselves (and exactly how to do them), in addition to completing two larger improvements for us. We found the price of these “retrofits” reasonable and workmanship excellent! As first-time homeowners, this was a great investment for us and we are very happy with the company we chose. Thanks Greg!"

    What our customers are saying

    At Efficiency Matters, your comfort and complete satisfaction is our top priority.
    We would be glad to provide references so you can hear about us first hand.

    Here are just a few examples of what our customers are saying.


    Tony Reyelts of Longmont, CO
    Greg, Just wanted to pass on thanks to Brett for a nice job well done. I've run the A/C in my house _once_ since the new Airscape fan was installed. And that was my own fault because I had two crock pots going full bore in the kitchen most all of that day.

    In the past, it didn't matter much that it was cooler at night: I simply couldn't get any of that cool air into the house. Overnight, I could maybe drop the temp 5 degrees total before having to close up in the morning... and that was with multiple fans running by windows. The picture below is a pretty good example of the new paradigm. On the same type of day before the fan, the indoor temp by noon without A/C would have been pushing 80. Now, I can get the house cool enough in the morning that it tops out at around 75 or so in the evening on a 90+ day... just around the time the outside is cooling off enough to start the cycle again.

    There's some additional savings in that I had been planning to install a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. I have a low-ceilinged house, so that wasn't my first choice. And now the whole house fan negates the need and does a better job, to boot.

    Anyway, thanks from a satisfied customer. I'll send anybody your way that I can.

    Jim and Karin Higgins of Fort Collins, CO
    In the fall Efficiency Matters did a major upgrade to the efficiency of our home. It turned out we had a home with many air leaks that were robbing us of needed heat in the winter and we were losing our cool in the summer. Efficiency Matters did a comprehensive analysis of the house and recommended several things that could be done to tighten the house and make our heating and cooling systems operate more efficiently. Recommendations were made considering the return on investment value. We have gone through a winter and half of a very hot summer and could not be more pleased. Our utility bills are roughly half what they used to be. Great job Efficiency Matters, I will recommend your services to anyone.

    I would describe Greg as honest, thoughtful, conscientious, thorough, and hard working. I've worked with many contractors through the years and while most of them do a decent job, a few of them really impress with both their skills and attitude. Greg is one of the best and I would not hesitate to recommend him for improving the energy efficiency of your home.
