Going green for your home improvement project is one of the best decisions you can make for your family and the environment. Where to start is the question, though. Should you invest in a major overhaul or simply minor adjustments or a little remodeling?
The best place to start when you’re looking to improve energy efficiency at home is with an energy assessment.
What Happens During This Phase?
With a company like California Energy Consultant Service, you get a Home Performance Assessment that rates your home on its current baseline of energy consumption. This way, you can better understand how much work (if any) has to be done and in what areas can make the biggest impact with the smallest change.
How Does It Work?
A home performance professional arrives at your home and begins the inspection. Using guidelines from the government, your home is rated from 1 to 10. The inspection evaluates the following:
Appliances and home electronics
Insulation and air sealing
Lighting and daylighting
Space heating and cooling
Windows, doors, and skylights.
Once that is done, you get recommendations on what can be done in each area, with emphasis on windows and siding. As a window replacement contractor, we understand the energy-efficient benefits of new windows and siding. In addition, replacing your windows, siding, and doors can lead to large, long-term savings on utility bills and repair costs.
