About Custom Energy Design:
Custom Energy Design is dedicated to helping you create an energy efficient and healthy home. The best place to start is to have our team of professionals conduct a $99 home energy checkup. As part of the checkup a member of our team (a Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certified Auditor) will visit your home and perform a detailed audit of all the energy-related aspects of your home. APS and SRP designed this program to encourage homeowners to make the necessary improvements to become more energy efficient. At the conclusion of the checkup we will explain what improvements are suggested AND we will explain the utility rebates and federal and state tax incentives that are available to help with the cost of the needed improvements.

About Eco Kong:
Back in 2009, while operating our small cleaning business in Phoenix, Arizona, our family watched a documentary film called ‘Chemerical’ that explores the life cycle of everyday household cleaners and hygiene products to prove that, thanks to our clean obsession, we are drowning in a sea of toxicity. We started to wonder if there wasn’t a better we could run our company and began thinking about what would soon become Eco Kong. Our personal experience in the residential and commercial building industries (along with our advanced education in business and sciences) spans over 30 years and led us to a breakthrough in our careers helping people live in comfortable, safe and efficient homes.
