Home Efficiency

Have you considered how energy efficient your home is? Home efficiency refers to energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions and demand for non-renewable energy resources. An energy efficient home may offer healthier, cleaner living conditions for your family as well as providing financial savings on energy bills. Most new residences are built with home efficiency in mind, but you can also invest in energy saving technology when renovating an existing dwelling. If building or buying a brand-new home is not currently in your plans, it’s a good idea to conduct a home energy assessment to determine how your home uses energy and ways to cut down energy consumption and costs. From home orientation to lighting, insulation, heating, cooling, appliances and home electronics, there are many features that can make your home more sustainable. To learn more about home efficiency and how you can ensure yours has a lower economic and environmental impact, get in touch with us today.
