Home Builder Services

Prescriptive Energy Code Consulting

Engage Deeper Green Consulting as a part of your design build team and we will guide you through local sustainable building and energy codes. We have extensive experience working with builders to ensure a project is on target to meet or exceed building codes.

Building Certifications

Let’s build something that meets or exceeds your objectives.  Offering services for several building certifications, we are available to perform a variety of roles on the design / build team.  We offer certifications through LEED, Energy Smart, Green Globes, and Passive House.

Certifying your good work can give your company a competitive edge as your name will be listed on the national register for each certification 

Energy Modeling

When you are in the planning process an Energy Model provides measurable options to evaluate available solutions to improve building performance. The process of building computer models of building systems in order to analyze them.

Outputs can incorporate the system feasibility, greenhouse gas emissions, cumulative financial costs, natural resource use, and energy efficiency of the system. Models can be used to evaluate potential designs, comparing building assemblies, assist with material selection or determine performance for anticipated building codes.

Sustainable Code Inspections

In Summit County we are contracted with the building department to perform building inspections and provide final approvals. We know these codes inside and out and can help you implement them into your building plans.

Blower Door Test

A blower door is a machine used to measure the airtightness of buildings. It can also be used to measure airflow between building zones, to test ductwork airtightness and to help physically locate air leakage sites in the building envelope. Deeper Green has the ability to test residential, multi-family or commercial projects. We will assess the construction quality of the building envelope, locate air leakage pathways, assess how much ventilation is supplied by the air leakage, assess the energy losses resulting from that air leakage, determine if the building is too tight or too loose, determine if the building needs mechanical ventilation and to assess compliance with building performance standards.

Thermal Imaging

Able to see where your can’t. A thermal image provide great insight on specific areas of a building and how it is performing. Thermal imaging cameras effectively translate heat - that is, thermal energy - into visible light to analyze surroundings. These cameras can be very precise, requiring only a small amount of heat to work effectively. Based on temperature differences behind sheetrock we can identify air leakage, missing insulation, moisture, thermal bridges and poor performing building assemblies.

HERS Rating

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance.  Deeper Green works with contractors to complete HERS Ratings as part of the building process. It’s important to know, a low HERS Index Score can command a higher price. The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home.

The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100.

  • A home with a HERS Index Score of 70 is 30% more energy efficient than a standard new home
  • A home with a HERS Index Score of 130 is 30% less energy efficient than a standard new home
