Projected Energy Modeling

Comprehensive computer modeling from architectural plans will project a home’s, multifamily or commercial building’s energy performance and determine how to meet your performance goals as well as 2015 IECC/ASHRAE 90.-2013 and other jurisdictional requirements. This allows you to have design details and specifications in-place before construction begins, saving you money.

Gain assurance early on that home specifications will meet your performance goals and requirements.

Pre-Drywall Inspections

These inspections are performed before drywall is hung to verify quality of air sealing, insulation, and air duct sealing. This allows for issues to be identified while they are easy to access and repair.

Lightly Treading’s pre-drywall inspections will target issues while they are still easy to access and repair. Depending upon your project we will work with you to select which of the following inspections are needed. Lightly Treading Energy Raters will notify the builder and/or appropriate trade partner of any areas in need of improvement immediately, so repairs can be efficiently addressed without affecting your production schedule.
