The summer promotion is currently running till September 30, 2011.  The first step to your home energy savings is scheduling an energy audit.
A&E is a certified Home Performance Contractor under the Building Performance Institute accreditation.  We have performed several energy audits and energy-efficient upgrades in and around the Pennington area.
A&E Construction's home energy audits determine where homeowners are using the most energy and where they are losing energy. 
Our energy audits typically take 3 to 4 hours to complete as we comprehensively test heating and cooling equipment, insulation levels, air sealing, windows, doors, appliances and lighting. A&E’s energy audits cost $225, but this audit fee is completely refunded if you choose A&E to complete the energy related improvements on your home.
Immediately following the audit, A&E will provide you with a 2 page summary report.  One week later, we'll provide you with a more comprehensive report including a proposal for your renovations as well as all energy efficient upgrades that qualify you for the financial incentives available with New Jersey's Home Performance with Energy Star solutions

  1. Everyone’s home is like a savings account; the more home improvement all are put into it, the more money you get out. Home remodeling doesn't have to be a test of will, but rather an opportunity to increase the value of your home with home improvement. For some, home improvement simply means keeping up with daily home repair.
