Wisconsin Home Energy Assessments, RVI High Performance


We are so glad we turned to RVI for our home energy assessment!

While preparing for a new addition to our family, we were worried that we may have needed to purchase new windows for our home. A large, costly project was not something we were planning on before a baby arrived! Fortunately, we had our home assessed and they were able to show us that there were much smaller projects we could do to improve our homes’ energy use.

RVI met with us quickly and helped us come up with a game plan for the most effective projects we could tackle. We even learned that the windows were not in need of necessary replacement! They also connected us with the people we needed in order to make the recommended updates to our home. The test helped us feel more confident in our home efficiency. We highly recommend turning to RVI for your home needs!
