Priority Energy services Glencoe, IL

Call today to Schedule your Glencoe Blower Door or Duct Test!


The village of Glencoe, IL fully committed to the 2015 ICC and 2015 Illinois Energy Conservation Code upon their introduction. Priority Energy has been providing the Blower Door  tests and Duct Leak tests for Glencoe builders and contractors to help them meet the code requirements. Our code compliance specialists provide timely and accurate testing and verification reports required by the village so completed projects can obtain their Certificate of Occupancy. 

There was some resistance to the mandated air tightness testing when the IECC 2015 code was first adopted but builders worked with Priority Energy to tighten their homes and most can now confidently meet and even exceed the required envelope tightness. Many of Glencoe's builders, architects and HVAC contractors have also chosen to work with Priority Energy for the required Manual J, D, and S calculations in order to meet the village's requirement for building permits. Home performance and indoor air quality services have also become important to North Shore builders and homeowners, alike. 

The average blower door leakage for a Glencoe, IL home is just over 3.9 ACH50, but please take a look at how the area's test results have evolved over time, and as always we like to give credit where credit is due - we will be on the look out for Glencoe's tightest home!  Currently that honor belongs to an area builder Priority Energy worked with to tighten the envelope to 2.6 ACH50, a mark far exceeding other local builders.

  • Thank you again and you will be the first person I call if I need additional part or service from your company.
  • 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.

  • Thanks for a super intelligent and deep seminar expertly handled by a staff which was a pleasure to be around. Lunch was superbly and subtly handled.
