Solutions for High Home Energy Bills
Your utility bills are a direct result of your electrical and gas consumption and your utility company’s rates. Utility rates will always be volatile based on the price of oil, and changing world events. All system inefficiencies and factors that increase your consumption will cause higher utility bills. The solution is to reduce your energy consumption.
You can do that in two ways - by sacrificing comfort, light, heat, etc, or you can implement highly cost effective solutions based on your homes unique energy profile. You can’t control utility rates, but by having us evaluate your home as a ’whole house’ system, we can show you cost effective improvements that can dramatically improve your homes energy demand and lower your monthly bills!
As the EPA Energy Use chart above shows, the average American homeowner pays close to 50% of their annul utility costs to heat and cool their homes. The good news, there is significant room to employ inexpensive and cost effective measures to significantly reduce monthly utility costs…and make your home more comfortable and healthy in the process.
How large is the OPEN Window in your home?
Air leakage in a home accounts for up to 40% of the space conditioning costs and is THE most important factor to address in making your home more energy efficient, comfortable, and healthy. However, the vast majority of homes including those built as recently as 2010 have significant uncontrolled air leakage that is the equivalent of a window being left wide open – your round! Left unresolved, the homeowner is literally throwing money out year round – hundreds and even thousands of dollars - year after year! This is money that could be put to better use – like your retirement fund or your childs college fund! Do you live in a 70′s, 80′s, or 90′s home? The older your home, the larger your “open window” is likely to be!
