Kevin Burk, Owner of Hill Country Energy Smart Homes

Greetings from the beautiful Texas Hill Country! 

I am the owner, chief energy efficiency consultant, and home energy rater for Hill Country Energy Smart Homes. I am a Veteran Owned and Operated Small Business serving the Texas Hill Country and it is my goal to help my clients make their homes and businesses energy efficient, comfortable, and affordable.

A retired Army officer with 28 years of service, energy efficiency and renewable energy has always been a passion of mine. So when I retired from active duty I decided to pursue that passion by learning the science of buildings: how they operate as a system of systems and how each system - the building envelope, the heating and air conditioning systems, the ductwork, the appliances, the lighting - interacts and affects comfort and efficiency. I obtained my certifications as a Building Analyst, Building Envelope Professional, and Infiltration and Duct Leakage Analyst from the Building Performance Institute (BPI) so that I could learn the state of the art building diagnostics that enable me to best help my clients achieve their energy efficiency goals. 

I then earned my Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) and Energy Star Partner certification so that I could help custom home builders and their clients build the most energy efficient homes by applying the high building standards of the Energy Star for Homes program. As a certified Home Energy Rater, I can apply the home energy rating system (HERS) and energy modeling software to ensure a new custom home meets or exceeds those high standards by engaging in the building process from the very beginning and following it through to completion - working with the architect, the builder, and the various professional trades to ensure we collectively build a high-performance energy efficient home for our client.

It would be an honor and a pleasure to serve you, whether you are building a custom Energy Star home here in the Hill Country, are a custom home builder that desires the distinction of building Energy Star homes, or own an existing home and want to improve its overall efficiency. Give me a call and together let's make a better home!
