  • Attic Fans – The heat that accumulates in your attic can make your air conditioning units work twice as hard, which can cost you twice as much in electric bills. Having attic fans that dispel this accumulated heat can help you reduce this cost. Even moreso when utilizing solar attic fans.
  • Insulation – For many of our clients, the addition of additional or higher quality insulation is an added bonus to cost savings and energy efficiency. As part of your solar evaluation, we will check to ensure that the energy you capture stays in your home.
  • Radiant Barrier – Most people do not realize that when your roof absorbs the heat of the sun, it also heats up what is underneath it - your attic, and by extension, your home. Your AC unit then needs to work overtime in order to keep the inside of your home cool, which is where a radiant barrier becomes beneficial. This barrier will help keep most of the heat of the sun out and will keep your AC system running efficientlly.
  • Window Replacement – If you live in an older home or if you didn't consider using energy efficient windows when you first constructed your home, you might want to consider window replacement. The windows that are used for home efficiency help to keep cold air in and hot air out, which in turn helps to keep your electric bills down.
