Just as no two houses are exactly the same, neither are the homeowners who live there. For example, while one resident may never plan to move, another may want to sell in the next six months. While one may have the resources to make all the energy-efficient improvements to the house at once, another may have to make selective upgrades over time.
And either approach is fine with Hal Smith, co-owner, Halco Energy, Phelps, N.Y., who stated that this situation illustrates the beauty of home-performance contracting (HPC). “It gives you the ability to solve homeowners’ comfort and efficiency issues and really focus on doing what is best for them within their budget.”
