Keep Your Home Energy Efficient

Keep Your Home Energy Efficient

Energy efficiency is something every homeowner desires. The goal is to minimize energy bills while ensuring that a home stays comfortable at all times, no matter what the weather outside may be.

If you consider energy efficiency to be more of a requirement than an option for your home, you need to talk to our energy-efficiency experts at Superior Remodelers. Deciding to make your home energy-efficient one will save a lot of money in the long run. It will also help keep your home comfortable even in extreme weather conditions.

Options You Have for Creating an Energy Efficient Home

When you are planning on converting your home into an energy-efficient one, the first thing you need to do is locate the air leaks. Some steps you can take to learn where energy waste occurs include: 

  • Do the incense or candle test – Hold a lit candle or a stick of incense against your windows and doors. When the smoke or flame dances towards your windows or doors, it means these are not airtight and can allow warm or cold air to escape your home.
  • Upgrade everything that is old and inefficient – If you have an old boiler or furnace, it might be time for you to get it replaced. If your AC is outdated, you probably are consuming too much energy. Find out which appliances need to be replaced with newer, energy-efficient models to reduce your energy consumption and your costs.
  • Have a professional run a home energy audit – This is one of the best things you can do when you want to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Professionals use a variety of tools to determine why your home is wasting energy. They use thermal scanners, blower door testing, insulation checks, and even ductwork inspections. This will help them narrow down where the problems are and they can give you the solutions to these problems as well.
