Home Comfort & Efficiency

Long Island | Insulation | Air Sealing | Efficient Home Improvements

Home improvements present unique opportunities to increase your homes energy efficiency. A licensed Long Island Home Improvement Contractor knowledgeable in Building Science, can assure you of a beautiful home that performs magnificently!

BPI Accredited Contractor I once visited a home that had had a very expensive, high end, major renovation. It was simply stunning...but utility bills skyrocketed and the home was uncomfortable. The contractor and architect did a fine job but made mistakes typical of those who give little consideration to building performance.

It doesn't need to be that way. 

Efficient Home Improvements

Murtha Construction is accredited by the Building Performance Institute and discusses building efficiency before a hammer touches your home.   You can rest at ease, knowing that home performance will be a major consideration in your home improvement project.

A super energy efficient engineering marvel

Take the case of a Murtha client who had a pipe burst on day 1 of a 4-day vacation. Imagine looking forward to relaxation after a long drive, only to find water cascading down your stairs and "rain" falling through both lower floors of your home!

Once the insurance claims were settled, the task of putting the home back together started. Before the disaster, the home suffered from uneven heating due to a leaky and poorly designed forced air heating system and major air infiltration.

By utilizing advanced building performance, the home was transformed into a super energy efficient engineering marvel described by the homeowner as "delightfully comfortable".
