Why Energy Efficiency?

You have probably thought about your car's "Miles Per Gallon" and how it affects your fuel expenses. But the reality is - you can't impactfuly improve your car's fuel efficiency unless you drive less miles! Your home or business is a different story.

The utility meter on your home or business is running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and you can reduce those fuel expenses.

With Energy Efficient upgrades to your home or business you can greatly reduce your fuel expense as well as make it more comfortable for you and your family or your employees and customers.

Here are some tips from Matt Fiscus – ENERGY STAR Award Winning Builder and Energy Efficient Author

Why Do Our Buildings Waste So Much Energy?

  • Air infiltration and Low Insulation Levels are just two of the many common causes of high utility bills and uncomfortable buildings. Energy Efficient Upgrades such as air sealing and increasing insulation levels are extremely effective in reducing your energy usage.

  • Outdated and Inefficient HVAC Systems and Leaky Ductwork  Having an outdated and inefficient HVAC system, along with leaky ductwork can tremendously increase your fuel expenses. Updating your HVAC system and sealing your ductwork is like taking a car that had 9 Miles to the Gallon and making it have 40 Miles to the Gallon.
