Home Performance is a philosophy and a science based on the premise that homes should be safe, healthy, comfortable, durable, and efficient.
After all, a home is probably the biggest investment most of us will ever make. A house is one of the few things we purchase that don't come with an instruction manual. Is a home comfortable, energy efficient, safe, healthy, durable? These are all considerations that a homeowner does not give much thought to...until they move in!
All Seasons Quality Renovations is among a handful of companies nationwide who has the knowledge, experience and certifications to properly diagnose and SAFELY remedy common issues such as discomfort, drafts, high energy bills, and excessive dust. When we assess a house, we look at the "interconnectedness" of all components and systems to assure maximum health, safety, comfort and indoor air quality.
All Seasons Quality values your time and money.
Home performance is based upon what we call the 5 pillars of home performance:
1) Safety: Assessing the safety of a home is an important part (maybe the most important) of a home performance contractor's job. Backdrafting appliances that may be sending carbon monoxide into the home, unsafe levels of formaldehyde from building materials, are all potential safety issues that a home performance contractor is trained to address.
2) Health: Indoor air quality is listed by the EPA as one of the top environmental threats to human health. A home performance contractor's job is to ensure that your home's indoor air quality is not a threat to you or your family's health.
3) Comfort: Our home is our refuge. It should be comfortable. Drafty rooms, cold spots, unpleasant humidity and heat in the summer, poor quality lighting or incandescent lighting that creates unnecessary excess heat in the summer, are all avoidable unpleasantries. A home performance contractor can help.
4) Durability: Imperfections within a building, in addition to causing discomfort raising health concerns, can also have long term repercussions. Moisture problems causing rot in framing, or insufficient insulation causing ice dams, are among the durability concerns that a home performance contractor will pinpoint, then tackle.
5) Efficiency: Last but not least, home performance is about ensuring that a home is cost effective to live in. If a mechanic told you that a few simple improvements could drastically improve the fuel efficiency of your car, that's something most of us would jump on. That's what a home performance contractor does for your house.
