Improve Your Home's Efficiency, Indoor Air Quality & Comfort

Your home is likely to be one of the largest investments you'll ever make. More importantly, it is the place where you spend the majority of your time. So ask yourself: Is it as comfortable as you'd like it to be? Is it as healthy as it should be for your family? Is it as energy efficient as it could be?

Homeowners across Illinois are beginning to recognize that improving home efficiency and performance will also solve the problems that prevent the enjoyment of a safe, healthy and comfortable home. The big question often is: "Where do I start?"

The answer? Start with Priority Energy and begin with an energy audit or a new home plan review for the most cost-effective and successful project!

Whether you are building from the ground up, renovating or adding an addition, our certified building science team can help you create a dream home that will protect you and your family for a lifetime. From conceptualizing the design to the final performance test, our team has the experience, industry training and tools to keep your project running smoothly and to ensure it will perform as expected.

Our services can hep with your new construction or home improvement plans!

Build an Energy Efficient, Healthy New Home

Tell your builder you want a Leak-Free home and duct work system, with low carbon emissions! We can help make your new home as tight as possible, the healthy way!

If you've set your sights on a new, energy efficient home with enhanced comfort and health features, we can work closely with your builder and architect to ensure it is built to meet your goals. Priority Energy can design your home's exterior envelope (the boundary between the indoor and outdoor air), high-performance HVAC system, and fresh air ventilation equipment to meet and exceed current standards, including verification of:

Because we train the pros, we are able to be your advocate with a traditionally trained contractor to help design a home with an advanced approach to efficiency, indoor air quality and comfort. 

Breathe Easy & Improve Comfort

Do you suffer from allergies, asthma, chemical sensitivities, or do you feel like you're sick more than you should be in your home? Is there just an odor that doesn't feel right? We can help with all of those symptoms and more!

Priority Energy has the tools and expertise to deliver improved indoor air quality and to make your home cozy and comfortable all year long. Our indoor air quality knowledge and IAQ testing will detect moisture, VOCs, particulates and combustion gases. Once identified, we can design filtering and ventilation improvements to reduce indoor air pollution.

Even small changes can reap big rewards. We will help you design your new home or retrofit your existing home with our four proven steps for healthier indoor air quality.

Seal your Ductwork and Feel the Many Benefits 

Your furnace and air conditioner are only one half of your home's mechanical system. The second half is the duct system. You may be able to see a portion of the ductwork running in your basement, but this is the literal tip of the proverbial iceberg!

Your ductwork stretches through walls, floors and, even worse, the attic, crawlspace and garage. Pollen, mold, VOCs, combustion gases and more can be carried through your air ducts to all the rooms in your home. This is not only unsafe, but it can make breathing difficult, especially for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Duct leaks also rob you of energy dollars, put a strain on your heating and cooling system and make your home feel drafty and unevenly heated. Want to help the environment? Seal your duct leaks to reduce your home's greenhouse gas emissions.

The Award-Winning Aeroseal process is recommended by the DOE as one of the best home improvement measures homeowners can make! Enjoy less dust, balanced room temperatures, energy-savings, HVAC durability and healthier indoor air in one non-invasive step.

Priority Energy offers the Aeroseal Duct Sealing™ process which provides an almost immediate improvement in comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality.The non-invasive process quickly and easily seals ductwork in new and existing homes. Once sealed, the efficiency improvement has been shown to reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 40%!

Energy Audits Provide a Healthy Home Check-Up for Existing Homes

A home energy audit will identify problem areas in your home or building. Utility bills seem too high? Excessive humidity? Strange odors? Sick house? Priority Energy's comprehensive energy audits will identify ways to make your home or building more comfortable, energy efficient and healthier.

Before beginning your next home improvement project, consider getting an energy audit first and integrating some energy efficiency and comfort enhancements during the re-construction.. Our audit report will help you prioritize your improvement plan based on your unique home, your budget and your goals.

Choose the Right Contractor

Letting a contractor into your home and trusting them to provide quality work is a big decision and can be very stressful. Always look for a BPI certified technician or BPI GoldStar contractor for your retrofit and re-modeling projects for the best home performance results.

BPI Certified Professionals are residential contractors who have proven their knowledge, skills, and abilities by successfully completing the BPI exams. They know how to improve energy efficiency while providing important health and safety functions such as mold prevention, carbon monoxide testing, and combustion appliance safety checks. They also have the know-how to help prepare your home for solar, geothermal, or other types of energy upgrades.

Priority Energy is proud to be a BPI GoldStar contractor and a BPI Training Center!
We are also proud of our technical staff. Every one of our crew members is BPI and/or RESNET certified for your peace of mind.

  • I just wanted to send this message to all you and say GREAT JOB!  We had a rough inspection today and passed for the Woodward Ave. house. The inspector told us "if every house I inspected looked like this one I would be out a job".

  • We were so impressed with the amount of information the Priority Energy technicians gave us during our ENERGY AUDIT.  If you are buying a house, I would strongly recommend having them do an energy audit on it, in addition to your usual home inspection.

  • Anytime I can be a reference for all the great work on my (new) house, please let me know.  Priority Energy is outstanding at what they do!

    Executive at Medline Industries, IL
  • I have a two story home built in the mid seventies. Lots of temperature fluctuation between the floors. The Aeroseal process dramatically increased the air flow to the second floor. Good experience. The company was very informative, answered a lot of questions.

  • Thank You so much for the super-fast turn around of our Manual J, D and S reprt for the Village of Glen Ellyn. Our original Manual J kept getting kicked back to us for corrections but your calculations/report got approved instantly-no questions asked and no more permit delays!

    Kim, Glen Ellyn, IL
  • Thank you. Truly. I appreciate you taking the time to clarify things for me and then going above and beyond to ensure that my CEUs are handled for our current RESNET cycle. You’ve always been kind to me and this is another shining example of that.

  • On to the Radon issue - Excellent results with Aeroseal!  From 5 + to a .4.  Before sealing like we discussed, I had warm air coming out of the sump basket with the furnace running. Even with the furnace running, it is still pulling air in now.
