Air Duct Sealing »
In addition to providing builders with testing, verification, and Energy Rating Pipeline Management (see below), EDGE Energy maintains a robust construction division which employs a workforce of certified air-sealers and weatherization retrofit technicians. Our staff is trained to modern Green Building standards and use diagnostic gear like blower doors, Infra-red cameras, and smoke / fog machines during air-sealing procedures to make sure your envelope gets tight.
Many builders have begun to employ EDGE as their Rater and Air-sealing crew prior to bringing in a traditional insulation sub-contractor. Our special techniques and performance driven work scopes can end up saving Home Builders money by building a tighter envelope and avoiding call backs or construction delays by a sub-contractor missing some of the finer points of properly sealing an envelope.

This traditional thinking ignores the exceptional marketability of utility cost savings and improved comfort, durability and indoor air quality. Our ENERGY STAR program addresses these key market barriers and in doing so presents a strong business case for builders.
This support will be in the form of man hours dedicated to:

Each state offers different financial incentives for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Here are some of the highlights for your state!
Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
Edge Energy clearly prefers installing SunPower systems. They were professional and technically informed. They were reasonable and accommodating with contractural matters. The installation crews were polite and courteous. They did neat work and were very competent. They were extremely responsive to address problems that arose. I would recommend them without reservation. They put a good face on SunPower.
I was completely satisfied by Edge Energy. They have consistently designed and reliably installed strong performance energy innovations for my home. Indeed the only reason that I installed SunPower panels was due to their recommendation.
Edge Energy responded quickly to my inquiries and provided clear answers. The technicians who oversaw the installation process were professional and I learned a great deal while interacting with them.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
