Home Energy Audits in (VT) Vermont
Uncover where your home is wasting electricity or losing heat and the steps that can be taken to improve energy efficiency.
If your insulation is determined to be lacking or deteriorating spray foam or cellulose insulation can be used to improve the R-value of your home. Having knowledge and experience with both spray foam insulation and cellulose insulation our insulation team will work to improve your home’s barrier to the outdoors with the correct insulation options.
Home Air Sealing
Air sealing is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Air sealing is utilized to stop air leaks from entering and leaving your home. Both cold and hot air can easily escape from features in your home’s heating envelope such as recessed lighting, attic hatches, plumbing vents and more. Along with air escaping your home, air can easily enter through common features in every home such as dryer vents, oven vents, outdoor faucets, crawl spaces and more.
Home Heating Systems
Working to improve your home’s heating and cooling systems is one of the most effective ways to ensure solid monetary returns on any improvements made to your home’s energy efficiency. Based on the initial energy audit we will recommend upgrades to your existing heating systems or new heating systems that will drastically improve your homes energy efficiency and save you money on both heating and cooling in the future. Heat pumps can be installed to efficiently move outdoor air inside while reducing energy consumption costs associated with running traditional heating and cooling systems such as boilers and air conditioners.
Skylights and other daylighting systems can provide the interior of homes with an abundance of natural light. Thus, eliminating the need to have lights consume electricity for hours on end. Once installed skylights can provide up to thirteen more times more light than traditional light bulbs and two times more light than traditional lamps.
Energy Efficient Windows & Doors
Upgrading your home’s windows and doors can help to eliminate heat loss through building materials which provide less efficient insulation. Energy efficient windows and doors can also work to help reduce the need for traditional lighting systems by allowing more natural light into an interior space.
