Phoenix Energy and Construction has qualified as a proud participating contractor in Energy Upgrade California. This is an unprecedented collaboration between the California Department of Energy and San Diego Gas & Electric to reduce energy use and create more comfortable healthy and safe homes.
Phoenix Energy's goal is to optimize efficiency of the whole house where all systems work together and complement each other and this means savings on your utility bills.
The first step in the process is to do an energy audit of the home. Phoenix Energy and Construction uses advanced technologies to obtain data that assigns values to the home's current consumption of energy and establishes the baseline to improve from. It combines building science with raw data that is measured to computer model energy saving opportunities. Once inspected and tested, a customized report is created that highlights problem areas, prioritizes improvements and itemizes their costs. Also included is an analysis of achievable reduction of the utility bills. Recommendations, which could include Solar or Solar-thermal for hot water consumption, often result in greater then 40% energy savings.
Phoenix Energy & Construction has been certified by combining Building Performance Institute standards with General Contracting that focuses on residential and multi-family energy efficient retrofits. This can qualify a homeowner or property manager for up to $8000 (residential) and between $500-1500/unit (multi-family) in SDG&E and San Diego County incentives as well as additional local municipality rebates and federal tax credits.
Stakeholders should be equipped with knowledge of energy efficiency programs that enhance the operation of their facility. They can assist us in working through issues that are revealed in the energy audit such as upgrading appliances, air quality, windows, lighting, air leakage, mold and moisture issues, insulation, water use and irrigation and the Heating/Cooling system. After all its for the comfort, health and safety of the residents.
