Custom Exteriors offers home performance services in the Bay Area

Custom Exteriors: Leading The Energy Efficient Home Revolution As The Bay Area’s Home Performance Experts.

Custom Exteriors has been the leading provider and installer of replacement window and door products for almost 20 years. Since then, we have expanded to provide siding installation and complete home performance services, including insulation, HVAC and solar. Up until now, most energy efficient home performance projects were comprised of exotic and expensive technology. You may have even thought, “someday I’d really like to do that to my home.” Now, with the introduction of PACE programs and growingly accessible home efficiency technology, more homeowners can increase the energy efficiency of their home and reduce their contribution to climate change.

What is Home Performance?

Home performance is a science-based approach to evaluating and diagnosing energy efficiency within a building. This approach is wholistic, taking into account a variety of interacting factors within the home. Interrelated “systems” within the home include occupants, appliances, heating and cooling systems, windows and doors, climate, and more. At Custom Exteriors, we pride ourselves in our home performance knowledge, and use state-of-the art tools for diagnosing and resolving your home’s efficiency issues.

Reduce Before You Produce. We’ll Show You How.

Taking a “reduce before you produce” model, our team will discuss how making the home energy efficient first is important before adding solar or an updated HVAC system. Why? An energy efficient home has a reduced energy need, meaning comprehensive upgrades to your home may not be required. That means you could, for example, use a smaller and more efficient HVAC system. If you are considering solar for your home, fewer panels may provide your home with enough energy.

Applying is simple and only takes a couple of minutes. Using the calculator tools, homeowners will learn how much money they can save in energy costs over the next 25 years.
