Why We Do What We Do
We started this company because we wanted to do something that had a positive impact on people's lives and the environment. After noticing that one house would use two or three times more energy than that of another house the same exact size, we realized that the amount of energy people were using wasn't always a homeowner's fault, but it was rather the fault of the actual construction of the home. Quickly, we recognized that a building works as a system, and if one component is thrown off, the entire building doesn't function as it's supposed to, causing high bills, uneven temperatures in the home, and poor indoor air quality- all which make an uncomfortable space to live in. We take pride in being able to solve these issues.
At Ideal Energy we understand that there are many misconceptions about what “green” improvements and products are, and what cost effective solutions are available to help you reach your goals. Our certified building analysts will evaluate your home as a system, using industry proven building performance equipment and testing methods. This approach allows us to develop an accurate picture of your home’s performance, which in turn permits us to provide ultimate retrofit solutions.
In addition to being your best choice for all Phoenix-area jobs (we are also members of the Electric League of Arizona, the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, Energize Phoenix, and the Arizona Heat Pump Council), we are easy, personable, and straight forward. We don't play games, and we get the job done right.
