Looking to upgrade your home with energy-efficient features? These five ideas will contribute to energy savings in your home:
#1 Exterior Doors
Choosing the right exterior door for a home should be a carefully thought-out decision. When choosing a door for your home, first consider the door’s energy-performance ratings. This rating scores how well each door preserves the energy in your home by trapping heat or cool air inside.
Insulating and air sealing your existing home is the number one way to reduce energy bills, save money, and reduce your home’s carbon footprint. We have the tools (spray foam insulation, air sealing, and crawl space insulation to name a few, read here) to make your home more energy efficient and more comfortable and keep your energy dollars from going out the window.
#3 Exterior Colors
The color of your home can greatly contribute to the heat inside it. A light exterior will help the home stay cooler, while a darker color will better maintain heat.
#4 Cool Roofs
Cool roofs are designed to reflect sunlight and lower roofing temperatures. Cool roofs are made from a type of reflective material within roofing materials such as tiles, shingles, paint or other substances. This energy-saving technique is ideal for houses in warm climates where air conditioning costs are high all year around.
The type of flooring you choose to place in your home can also save energy and money. Carpet traps heat and keeps your home warmer during the cold winter months. Choosing the right flooring for your home is an inexpensive way to save on climate-control costs.
