Hello! I am Matt Bowers. I spent 6 years as a Navy Nuclear Engineer. After I got out, I went to RIT and got my Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree. At RIT I was planning to focus on HVAC design due to my time in the Navy. While there I learned of buildings so efficient they didn't need furnaces. That peaked my interest. After graduation I spent the next 8 years working for Airtight Services as an energy consultant. I have worked on hundreds of homes in the Rochester area. I am also certified as a HERS Rater, Passive House Tradesman and a Passive House Consultant.
Now as a Rochester Passive House Consultant I specialize in maximizing the comfort and energy efficiency of any home, existing or new. I have experience in both the design and construction of homes so efficient they don't need a furnace.
In a new house, when this is done properly your mortgage and utilities monthly payment would be the same as if you built the house to code, however you now have an extremely comfortable, healthy, durable, quiet, and energy efficient home.
In an existing house, when you are planning an upgrade, I can show you how the incremental cost of maximizing the energy efficiency will provide the return on investment you are looking for, while setting you up for a much more comfortable, healthy, durable home.
