Give us a call to find out more about improving your home’s energy levels today!
Follow these steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency:
1. Check Your Appliances
Although it might seem greener to hang onto appliances you already have, the environmental footprint of older equipment can be tremendous. Appliances have come a long way over the past few years. Replacing any appliances that are more than two decades old can end up reducing your energy footprint tremendously.
2. Update Your Attic Insulation
Attic performance issues are one of the biggest energy performance problems, especially in colder regions. If your home experiences ice dams in the winter, this is a sign of poor attic efficiency. Any holes in your attic insulation should be sealed with an expanding spray foam insulation. Additionally, our insulation contractors can check and make sure your attic is adequately preventing heat loss.
3. Replace Lighting With LEDs
If you haven’t already, now is a good time to start gradually replacing the lighting inside and outside of your home with LED lighting. This technology is dramatically more efficient than traditional lighting solutions and will last much longer.
4. Check Your Roof
Have a roofing contractor inspect your roof for any signs of damage that could be causing your home to be less efficient. Keeping your roof in good condition can also save you from unwanted surprises down the road, extend the lifespan of your roof, and protect your home from mold and mildew.
