"bWise by Viking" is our custom approach to energy conservation. We begin with an Energy Conservation Consultation; just one of the many services we offer to help you determine which path to chose in order to lower your energy bills. Be it solar, geo-thermal, or a combination of our innovative energy saving features, we have the knowledge to help guide you to the best decision for your new home.
In recent years, we at Viking Custom Homes have been focusing our efforts on how we can build a more energy-efficient home. Our research has shown that most builders are constructing homes with the same techniques that have existed for decades. While these techniques meet building code requirements and have been effective in the past, new innovations and technologies now exist that will allow us to truly improve our homes’ energy efficiency. The most advanced techniques and products will keep your total energy consumption to a minimum, thereby saving you money, helping the environment, and granting you independence from unpredictable utility companies.
