An energy-efficient home is something that most people seek. When a home is energy-efficient, utility bills go down, making the cost of leaving more affordable, comfort levels go up, and homes have a higher market value. To maximize your home’s energy savings, you may need to make a few changes.
The best places to start involve replacing your roof, windows, improving insulation, replacing doors, and adding efficient light into your home. To get the kind of energy efficiency that allows you to save money in the long run, you need to invest in energy-efficient upgrades to your home like:
Replacing Roof: You will want to upgrade your roof to an energy-efficient one. Similar to the energy-efficient appliances in your home, roofing products can provide energy-saving qualities. Byers Roofing uses Owens Corning Energy Star rated shingles that can help reduce your energy bills when installed properly. These shingles reflect solar energy, decreasing the amount of heat transferred to a home’s interior and the amount of air conditioning needed to keep your home cool.
Ventilation System: Allowing a home to maintain a more consistent temperature involves improving the home’s energy efficiency. The more energy-efficient it is, the more it will keep the air inside the home from escaping and prevent the outside air from entering. Not only does using a whole house fan improve your home’s energy efficiency, but it is also a very energy-efficient product itself. Like our Byers Solatube Whole House Fan that uses an advanced cooling technology that is more energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and quieter than an air conditioning system.
Light System: Adding more natural daylight into your home can save you money. With Byers Solatube Daylighting System, you can light your home for free during the day using energy-efficient no-cost sunlight. That means you can spend less on electricity. Byers Solatube Daylighting System also qualifies for the Federal Tax Credit of 26% return.
Solar Energy: With Byers Solar, you can optimize your home energy at the lowest cost. We use SunPower solar panel that produces 60% more energy in the same space.
