Go Green, Save Green
With his infrared camera in one hand and a smoke stick in the other, Adam Duke, 24, of Bloomfield Hills is like an energy-saving super-sleuth. The president and co-founder of Go Green Energy Consulting in Southfield moves from room to room searching high and low — around baseboards and window ledges, in the wells of recessed lighting and along ceilings — for air leaks and other inefficiencies that can wastefully boost a homeowner’s energy bills. His company, with nine full-time employees, makes house calls all over Southeastern Michigan performing home energy audits and recommending and installing upgrades like door and window frame sealing, weather stripping, door sweeps and spray foam insulation. By making these simple changes, he says most homeowners can save more than 20 percent on their energy bills.
