Air sealing a home is often times the least expensive and most effective means of reducing energy waste. Older homes generally have very little attention paid to air sealing and more often than not, inadequate or no insulation. Insulating and sealing an attic or crawl space can improve indoor air quality as well as lower heating and cooling costs dramatically all while adding to the level of comfort and health you find in your home.
Duct leakage is a major problem in most homes. On average, ducts leak about 35% of the air they carry - the air you have paid to condition. We offer solutions ranging from the monetarily modest but effective sealing of duct runs, to replacing whole systems with newer, more efficient and/or sustainable products.
By replacing or refurbishing old windows the comfort of your living space will be greatly improved. Out of date windows can be leaky, hard to operate, and lead to a large solar heat gain throughout the day. New, replacement vinyl windows have many energy saving aspects, are rot resistant, and are extremely easy to operate and clean. Sometimes, though, repairs can rival replacements in both cost and efficiency. That is why, unlike other companies, we will do a thorough evaluation of your existing windows and try to determine the cost effectiveness of replacement vs. repair.
Although the return on investment with solar can be long, it enables you to lock in your power bills for the future. As energy costs increase by around 3% each year, installing solar panels on or around your house can help stabilize and reduce energy bills for 20 years or more. Further, any energy produced is like untaxed income. Small wind turbines can be an effective means for energy production depending on your location.
