You know you have a problem on your hands when your floors become especially cold, or when cold-resistant flooring materials like wood begin to feel chilly.
Do you have areas in your home that just never seem to get warm in the winter, or astronomically high heating bills even though you keep your thermostat at a modest setting? If so, your home is probably not as energy efficient as it could be. Home efficiency issues are not always easy to find — especially when they are rooted somewhere inside your walls. Fortunately, thanks to infrared diagnostic technology, you can look at what’s going on inside your walls and pinpoint the source of home efficiency issues.
It’s been a warm autumn in New England but now that it’s November, there’s no denying that the cold is creeping in fast. The Maine coast is as rugged as it is beautiful, and homeowners from Camden to Kennebunkport know the only way to weather the winter is to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

Fortunately, making your older historic Maine home more livable is possible with high-performance insulation.
Though summer in Maine is perhaps as perfect as the season can get anywhere in the world, we’d all be lying to ourselves if we said there’s never a single need for air conditioning. From Rockland to Portland, summer temperatures can climb into the 90s or even higher, and we’ve already had a few days this year that have made doing anything more than sitting on the beach an uncomfortable experience. Naturally, AC serves a place throughout the Maine summer, but it can also drive your energy bills through the roof if you’re not careful.
