    I will be doing residential at first and the long term goal is commercial. The "entry" for residential is much more straightforward, as the process and education/certification are pretty well defined. For commercial, in the long term you need PE license - which I don`t have yet.
    I am looking at a name like ____ Energy Conservation Solutions.

    About the business - I go into peoples homes and do combustion safety testing. Then, I  use diagnostic equipment (a Minneapolis blower door) to find out where heated air leaks out of the house - and to find the amount of total leaks. I make detailed suggestions to the homeowners about do-it-yourself and professional solutions to reduce their energy bills.
    My goal is a 10% reduction with DIY work and 30% or more with professional work. I do not personally do the energy upgrades - just give impartial advice on what needs to be done.

    Sound like a good Idea. What is you pricing range? Will you only do or commercial too? Do you are you certified, guaranteed, insured? I really do think you have a  great idea, I`m just adding some suggestions. I wish you best of luck! Sorry I`m not very imaginative, I`ll work on a green name suggestion.
    Best Regards
