Equipment Rentals and Calibrations

Diagnostic testing for buildings is important for analyzing building performance, meeting third-party verified green building certifications and improving the comfort and efficiency of your home or workplace. Southface has performed these tests for decades, but our mission is to transform the marketplace and build capacity for others to do the work needed to improve building stock across the Southeast. To that end, we have equipment available for rental so that companies and home performance professionals can meet the growing demand for these services.
