We care about making your house as energy efficient as possible
Ensuring a Comfortable Environment While Saving Money
Before you design a new home or remodel an existing one, consider investing in energy efficiency. A new energy system provides electricity, water heating, or space heating and cooling that is up to Energy Star saving standards.
In an existing house, the first step is to conduct an energy audit. Find out how your home uses energy, and determine the best ways to cut energy uses and costs. Before making upgrades, you may also want to work with an official energy auditor. They will use a “Home Energy Score”, which provides a rating of your home’s current efficiency, as well as a list of improvements and potential savings.
WHOLE-HOUSE SYSTEMS APPROACH
If you plan to design and build a new home you will want to optimize its energy efficiency. Consider a whole-house systems approach, to ensure that you and your Renovations Unlimited team of professionals will check over all the variables, such as, occupant behavior, site conditions, and climate.
Check the following items carefully:
- Appliances and home electronics
- Insulation and air sealing
- Lighting and daylighting
- Space heating and cooling
- Water heating
- Windows, doors, and skylights.
