Interest in healthy, ultra-efficient homes is growing rapidly—and for good reason. Homes that prioritize occupant health, safety, and comfort are more pleasant to live in and lead to a higher quality of life. 

Bruce Glanville, founder of Energy Home Basics, is the local expert when it comes to green building in the greater Knoxville area. As a highly experienced green building consultant and certified energy rater, Bruce has decades of industry knowledge and stays on the cutting edge of healthy, high-performance building design. He will be an asset to your team from beginning to end and can take your sustainable building project to the next level, leading to long-term health benefits and energy savings for occupants. 

Building Health & Efficiency Go Hand in Hand 

Building health and energy efficiency are intrinsically linked—you can’t have healthy indoor air quality without a tight building envelope and good ventilation, for example. Bruce takes a whole-home approach to sustainable construction that manages the connection between building health and performance. He looks at the house from all angles and considers the ways in which its components affect one another, ensuring optimal indoor air quality, humidity levels, temperature, and energy efficiency without compromising beauty and design. 

Green Building Consulting Services for New Construction & Renovation 

Bruce consults on all types of green building projects, from new, custom home construction to renovations and rescues. He works with property owners and entire building teams to integrate sustainability into the building’s design, construction, and operation. Depending on the specifics of your project and your goals, Bruce can help with: 

  • Indoor air quality, including air filtration and air purifiers  
  • HVAC, including electric heat pumps and ductless mini splits  
  • Water heating, including heat pump water heaters

Save Time & Money with Green Consulting Services 

No matter what stage your project is at, Bruce can provide the green consulting services you need. However, it’s best to bring on a green building expert from the get-go. Doing so will help you get the health and energy components of your build right from the start, so you don’t end up wasting time, money, and materials. 

With Bruce, the process is streamlined and efficient. He will integrate with your building team and act as a consultant and coach throughout every phase of your project. He’ll be involved throughout a full four seasons to make sure that the home is as healthy and comfortable in the winter as it is during the summer, and vice versa.
