Home energy performance is based on the idea that your house is a system made up of smaller systems that all work together. Therefore any time you adjust or change one part it, it affects the other parts. We perform a comprehensive evaluation and create a list of improvements to make your home safer, more efficient, and more comfortable. Isaac Home Energy Performance provides New York residents energy conservation advice and home improvements.
Air Leakage represents up to 40% of energy loss costs in your home. Leakage is also the reason for drafts. Air sealing is the most cost effective way you can increase energy efficiency in your home. Your home acts like a chimney: heat rises up through the interior of your home, up through your attic and is replaced by outside air that enters through holes in the basement or lower windows. We can seal those holes and slow down the air leakage, thus keeping the conditioned air you paid for in the home longer and allowing your heating and cooling equipment to run less. Some target areas to inspect and seal include rim joists, electrical, plumbing, and duct penetrations and any other areas that allow air to enter or exit your home.

Heat transmission is the leading cause of winter heat loss for the average home. Insulation slows heat transmission through the floor, walls and ceiling. A properly insulated home will be more comfortable with less temperature variations throughout your home. Proper insulation levels are essential to an energy efficient and comfortable home. Our Energy consultant’s custom design insulation improvements for your home using energy star guidelines. Because every home is different, we offer a number of insulation options including cellulose, 2-part spray foam, and fiberglass. Our professionally trained insulation crews provide top quality work while making sure your home is protected.

Poor attic ventilation contributes to shortened roof life, mold and mildew on your roof deck, and icicles. Your attic should be closed to the outdoor temperature in the winter months and removing excess moisture is critical. Home builders sometimes cut costs by venting bath fans to the attic rather than the outdoors. When warm, moist air is introduced to a cold attic, moisture collects on the roof deck damaging it and creating mold. The warm air also melts the snow on your roof which freezes at the gutter creating icicles. Your Isaac Energy consultant will calculate the proper ventilation needed for your attic. Our insulation crews will install soffit, static or gable ventilation and add the proper materials and terminations to your bath vents.
- Attic ventilation (soffit, static gable and bath fan)
- Control moisture migration
- Increase roof life
- Reduce icicles
- More even temperatures during the cooling season

Installing a geothermal system can offset your energy costs while helping the environment by using a natural heat source to heat your home.
Using a single geothermal heat pump is equivalent to planting an acre of trees.
Federal credits are available up to 30%.
Installing solar can offset your electric bill by 50-85%, with electric costs on the rise every year; there’s never been more of a reason to go green. There is a misconception that New York isn’t a good region for solar but the truth is we produce 10% over what the systems are rated for and the best time to make power is on a cold clear day.
NYSERDA offers incentives up to $10.500 per household.
The federal government offers a 30% credit and NY State a 25% credit.
