|A year ago, as we began to offer HERS rating services, we found that the cost of buying the necessary energy efficiency testing equipment was prohibitively expensive. So we set about looking for a place to rent it… and found out that there were virtually no vendors in the whole country. The nearest one is in Wisconsin and the cost of shipping the equipment exceeded the cost of the rental! So we purchased the specific equipment that is required for compliance with Boulder’s EnergySmart program and are now renting it out right here in Boulder.
These tools are useful and informative for not only energy raters, but also builders (spot hidden defects before they are closed up), home inspectors, DIY and curious home owners, plumbers (use the Infra-red camera to quickly detect a leak in a radiant floor system), insulation installers (meet the performance requirements of your contract), architects (create better details), and HVAC contractors (test your ducts and heaters for efficiency and safety). We offer memberships so you can get training on how to use the equipment and discounts on your rentals.
