Project Case Studies

Our belief that buildings as a complete system should provide a comfortable, healthy, efficient and durable indoor environment has driven us to develop a wide range of services.  Click below for case studies that illustrate how our belief in what buildings can do for our community means when installing heating systems, windows, and insulation or planning for the next ultra-low energy use building.  Stay tuned to this page- more content coming soon.  You can also check our blog for ongoing project updates and examples.

Residential Case Studies

ultra low energy use whitefish home

STRAND RESIDENCE – Through a partnership with Sustainable Building Design and Ford Construction, we installed a ground source heat pump, Alpen windows, and a complete insulation package for a new construction home in Whitefish.  The total cost to heat the house after the first year of occupancy was $71.

efficient HVAC ductwork

FRICKE RESIDENCE – We helped a Missoula family understand why they were uncomfortable in their home, and had bad indoor air quality- then we fixed the problems. Learn more about what we did, here.

furnace repair and maintenance

NICCOLUCCI RESIDENCE – A Missoula homeowner was looking to replace a furnace.  In addition to replacing the furnace, we conducted a comprehensive Energy Audit to create a clear plan for future improvements. You can read more about the process in our case study, here, or check out a sample energy audit report, here.

Commercial Building Case Studies

air sealing, air quality issues, healthy commercial officeTERRACE WEST BUILDING – When some employees at a local firm started getting sick at work, Energetechs performed a Comprehensive Energy Audit to determine the root of the issue.  Then we proposed and implemented a clear plan to address the issues.

cellulose insulation, commercial energy retrofit, montana natural history centerMONTANA NATURAL HISTORY CENTER – When a group of Missoula institutions sought a partner to make major energy efficiency renovations to an existing building, we jumped at the opportunity to be part of the team which included Sustainable Building Design and Reineking Construction Company.  With insulation and windows by Energetechs, utility bills at the Montana Natural History Center and Five Valleys Land Trust building have averaged only $10/person/month this winter.

boiler retrofit, rental property energy upgrade740 HIGGINS ST – When a property owner needed to replace the boiler in a major retail property, we developed a clear and comprehensive plan to make sure the investment would maximize long term value for both the owner and the tenants. Once the plan made sense for everyone, we installed new equipment and controls while navigating a challenging install schedule. Click here for a PDF presentation about this project and it’s impact.
