New Building Evaulation

Construction plans for your new residential or commercial building are evaluated for local energy code compliance and air-tightness of construction details. ConservFirst encourages the design of buildings that lose little heat and require small efficient heating, cooling & ventilation equipment. Working with your architect or designer we review designs and assist in identifying energy efficient and durable building materials and space conditioning equipment. Additionally, we offer building and duct leakage testing, along with ventilation equipment flow testing services to verify the building and equipment meets the design and code requirements.

** Effective January 2013, we now provide HERS ratings for your residential buildings. Ratings are available for New Mexico code compliance, New Mexico Sustainability Tax Credits, HUD energy loans and energy efficient mortgages. Verification services are provided as required by each program.
