Unlike other home contractors and specialists, we are guided by third party technical standards for the home performance, and for any improvements done by us or our qualified subcontracted tradespeople. From air sealant to insulation, heating equipment to the one hundred other services we offer, you can take comfort in knowing that a third party is evaluating our work for quality and adherence with the best practices of home performance contracting.
Home Performance Assessment (home energy audit) is the most important step in assessing how efficient your home is and the energy it consumes. This home performance assessment allows our certified advisors to evaluate what improvements we can make to improve your home's comfort, health and efficiency. Or BPI approved building assessment will show you how you can improve your home's comfort and save a considerable percent off your next utility bill.
Our certified Energy Advisor will identify where your homes thermal bypasses are and where you can be saving energy. Our Advisors determine the safety and efficiency of your home's heating and other combustion systems. With just a few simple techniques you can find ways to conserve energy, use less water and live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Our BPI certified Advisors use state of the art equipment such as blower doors and thermal imaging cameras to evaluate the building envelope for air infiltration and insulation deficiencies.
Your home could be using 20%-50% more energy due to old or poorly maintained appliances, missing or compressed insulation, excessive air infiltration and/or poorly performing windows and doors? We have a proven track record of saving Hampton Roads homeowners' over 20% on their utility bills! Contact us today, and we will send a certified energy auditor to inspect your home, and solve its problems.
The advisor will identify ways for you to reduce your energy usage; give you estimates on how much the upgrades will cost, and tell you how much you can expect to save.

We are proud to provide rating services to qualify new homes for the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Even in states with more rigorous energy codes, the U.S. EPA ensures that ENERGY STAR remains the symbol for truly energy-efficient performance. These homes are good for businesses, consumers, and the environment.

The time of high-cost LEED has come to an end. VHPN is assisting building professionals with affordable LEED consulting services at a flat rate. These consulting services contain near everything necessary for projects to achieve at least LEED Silver Certification on time and within budget.
This service provides building professionals access to the resources necessary for planning for, and subsequently documenting, compliance with the LEED Certification standards. We provide support for the following LEED credits, regardless of your prior experience, and regardless of your project size(s).
We facilitate the achievement of 3 Prerequisites and up to 38 Credits (LEED Silver rating).
