Sustainable solutions in a Changing World

EarthMore is a small family-owned business specializing in consultation services regarding sustainable energy, home design, and building problem diagnostics and resolutions. Our science based approach saves our clients money while reducing their carbon footprints. This can be in the form of ensuring your current home or business is properly air-sealed and insulated, exploring the option of a renewable energy system, or beginning the design and build process of your future “green” dream home. We offer expert second opinion consultation services to aid in our client’s peace of mind. We never want you to overpay for services that won’t fix your home’s problems or for systems that underperform on what was promised.
