At Rick’s Energy Solutions, we are among the nation’s top green building consultants, and a leading name in energy conservation. Based in Santa Rosa, California, we service the city and surrounding areas, focusing heavily on homeowners, architects and home designers. If you are in need of a home energy audit or if you own a company in Northern California, looking for consulting and energy solutions, we are here to meet your needs.
About Our Services
Rick’s Energy Solutions consists of multi-skilled experts who have 40 years of experience in the construction industry. We are certified energy plan examiners, certified energy analysts, certified green building professionals, certified GreenPoint raters, certified home energy rating system raters (HERS raters) and certified CALGreen special inspectors. We can even help with the preparation and submission of required documentation for California Title 24 energy conservation and Green Building submissions. We are passionate about green energy solutions and we know the business inside and out.
At Rick’s Energy Solutions, we assist homeowners in making their living spaces more energy efficient and eco-friendly. It all begins by understanding the home as a comprehensive system and understanding how well your household performs through a home energy audit. This involves evaluating your home for its green building environmental impacts and its carbon footprint. Most houses do not operate to their fullest energy potential, even if the houses are newly constructed. Many homes leak air conditioning during the summer and heat during the winter due to faulty vent installation, windows with poor retention and myriad other reasons.
Finding Issues and Improving Efficiency
A lot of lighting and appliances utilize more energy than needed to function. This is incredibly wasteful, but very difficult to detect. Many air ducts leak, which wastes heated and cooled air. In addition, many water fixtures are wasteful, using more water than necessary for typical applications. These are all aspects our HERS raters look for in your home, during our audit. We identify hidden issues and offer solutions to help your home consume less energy and resources without requiring you to make any lifestyle changes. These solutions include duct redesign, air sealing, lighting and appliance upgrades, window upgrade, faucet and water fixture replacement and more. All energy problems in your home can be met by our efficient energy solutions.
Our services are very important when it comes to architects, designers and contractors. These people are responsible for the construction of future homes and commercial buildings and renovations of existing structures. When we work with them in helping to shape their next projects, you can rest assured that we are setting a new energy-smart status quo for buildings to come.
One Team Providing Smart Energy Solutions
It is very much a team effort. When working with architects, it is our job to prepare the documentation required for obtaining the Energy Star rating on new homes. The architects are the ones who bring the eco-friendly visions to life. We also prepare the documentation required to submit to the IRS for tax rebates for energy conservation measures. At Rick’s Energy Solutions, we make sure that designers, contractors and architects are up to par with the best knowledge, techniques and technologies when it comes to energy efficiency. It is our way of nipping energy problems in the bud. We consult on such projects as home additions, remodeling jobs and the construction of entirely new homes and commercial buildings to ensure the highest quality of environmental friendliness.
When it comes to energy solutions in Santa Rosa California and the surrounding areas, including Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Marin and Napa counties, Rick’s Energy Solutions is the most efficient and affordable option. We have more than 40 years of experience in the construction industry, with 25 of those years working in building inspection and plans examination. Our team is equipped to handle any project from all angles imaginable. We have our finger on the pulse of what is needed in terms of the most up-to-date energy-efficient conservation techniques and know the logistics that are involved with making everything come together effectively.
We also work closely with architects, contractors and homeowners. We could not do what we do without their skills and cooperation. There is no other green building consultant or energy conservation construction company that has all of their bases covered the way we do. The best defense is a good offense.
