Energy Efficiency

Solar Residential solutions to control your energy costs.

You can save up to 50% of your energy costs by receiving an energy audit that we provide. This audit will inform you on how we can make your home more efficient. Builders unfortunately don’t build homes to conserve energy, only to meet the minimum standards of local codes. We can guarantee a minimum of 25% energy savings with our simple solutions.

What is Energy Efficiency?

 

Energy efficiency, sometimes called efficient energy use, doesn’t mean living in the dark. You still get to enjoy the same comforts and conveniences but you get to save money. For example, an energy efficient attic will save you thousands on heating and cooling cost, especially if your unit or ductwork runs through your attic. In the summertime your HVAC will work twice as hard to keep the air cool as it passes through attic temperatures of 125 degrees or more.

How Do I Make My Home More Energy Efficient?

 

Any home improvements performed to reduce your overall energy consumption or prevent unwanted energy loss contribute to better home energy efficiency. Related to heating & cooling – this includes weatherization steps such as better insulating or sealing your home, replacing older windows & doors, maintaining sealed heating & cooling ducts and clean filters, and upgrading outdated heating & cooling systems, air conditioners and ventilation fans.

Sealing Air Leaks And Adding Insulation

Along with sealing air leaks which may be allowing cold or hot air to escape or penetrate your home’s envelope, your contractor may recommend insulation. Many older homes are poorly insulated, and some have no insulation at all. Properly installed insulation in attics, walls, and floors provides for more even temperatures throughout the house and results in a quieter, more comfortable living environment that is less costly to heat and cool.

Improving Heating And Cooling Systems

If your heat pump, furnace, or air conditioner is more than 10 years old, your contractor may recommend replacing it with a unit that is ENERGY STAR® qualified and properly sized. Installed correctly, high-efficiency units can help you save on heating and cooling costs. Such a unit will make your home more comfortable year-round by providing more consistent temperatures and better humidity control regardless of changing outdoor temperatures.

Fixing Your Combustion Equipment

Your contractor should also test the combustion equipment in your home, such as your furnace and hot water heater, to ensure that it operates and vents properly. In addition, the contractor should conduct a carbon monoxide test reading on ovens and other areas to further test the safety of your home.

Upgrading Lighting And Appliances

Energy used for lighting and appliances can account for half of your home’s total energy consumption. As a result, your Home Performance Contractor may recommend ENERGY STAR qualified products, such as refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, dishwashers, dehumidifiers, room air conditioners, and compact fluorescent light bulbs. An energy efficient solar hot water heating system may also be recommended.
