ENERGY EFFICIENT OPTIONS
Take advantage of our many energy efficient options you can incorporate into your home or business.
We feel that we can do our part to help preserve this beautiful planet and, at the same time, put some money back in our customers pockets. Many of the standard building practices we incorporate for our customers are energy efficiency upgrades from what may be considered "standard" by other contractors. Everyone likes to save money, so why not do something "green" at the same time?
DOORS & WINDOWS
Another great way to improve your energy efficiency is installing good quality windows and exterior doors to keep out unwanted drafts. And "low-e" glass can help to reflect the suns rays in the summer, making it easier and more efficient to cool your home or business.
Since glass is a poor insulator, it is also wise to not over do it with window size and quantity, as it will lead to excess heat loss in the winter, and may lead to excess solar heat gain in the summer.
Another way to "go green" and save money is by simply insulating your home or business above and beyond the current federal standards. You will not only help our environment by using less fossil fuels for heating, but you will also keep more money in your pocket instead of giving it to the utility company.
There are many insulation options available which help to increase your home or business's ability to keep the cold out in the winter, and keep the heat out in the summer.
Blown in fiberglass, or cellulose insulation are great ways to insulate and help to keep your utility bills down. Increasing exterior wall thickness from the standard 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches will allow you to install 2 additional inches of insulation, which is a great way to increase efficiency, and will also act as a great sound deadener.
