Caron details the changing energy codes, which helped formulate the direction of the company. Caron describes, “Ecosynergy was born in net zero energy. We were part of the first teams to work on the EQuilibrium™ program that came out around 2008.

That was our niche market.” In 2018, Ecosynergy agreed to a dealershiptoinstallAeroBarrier. Caron found it a natural move to join different Home Builders Associations to promote and offer the new product to the industry. By providing an innovative solution to clients, Caron found a way to fill a need in the market. Meeting this need shifted the orientation of the company. “I found that there seemed to be a fear in the residential building sector about how builders were going to get to those targets in such a short time frame. I felt that the industry needed guidance and help. We took the knowledge we had--and still have—and we are working with production and custom builders that are doing the best they can to reach those targets.” says Caron. Ecosynergy offers their services and products to any client that wants to meet their goals, whether it is a homebuilder or an architect. Caron notes that the clientele portfolio is diverse, and they are always looking to help clients to formulate new strategies and designs to achieve peak efficiency. The company’s diverse portfolio and clientele point to the quality of service that Ecosynergy provides. Caron finds that the way in which the team approaches clients is what sets this company apart.
