Three energy-efficient upgrades you should definitely include in your reno

Check out the cool and effective upgrades you can make to turn your home into a super comfy and cozy retreat, without exceeding your energy bills!

As we head into the colder months, it’s natural for homeowners to start thinking about those bigger energy bills. However, there’s a solution. Investing in the right renovations can ease these worries and transform your home into an energy-efficient place, offering solutions not only for winter but also for the warmer months.

  1. Window replacements

    Upgrading your windows can significantly enhance your home energy efficiency, improving comfort and reducing utility bills. Our main recommendation is double or triple-pane windows with Low-E coatings. These features help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature by preventing heat from escaping during the winter and blocking excess heat from entering during the summer. To improve insulation even more, consider windows with gas fills, such as argon or krypton, which improves thermal performance. And of course, it’s crucial to have a pro team handling the installation to ensure a tight seal, reducing drafts and further improving the overall energy efficiency of your home.

  2. Insulation reforms

    Insulation acts as a barrier that helps prevent the transfer of heat between the interior and exterior of your home. In colder months, it keeps warmth inside, reducing the need for heating, while in warmer months, it prevents excess heat from entering, reducing the demand for cooling. These reforms can involve adding extra insulation, replacing older or ineffective materials, sealing gaps and cracks to reduce air leaks, and upgrading different areas like walls, attics, and floors.

    Insulation improvements are usually a one-time investment that results in lower energy consumption for both heating and cooling, reducing not only your energy bills but improving your environmental footprint as well.

  3. Smart-home technology

    Smart home tech has totally changed the game when it comes to saving energy at home. These systems allow homeowners to control and automate things like lights, heating, cooling, and even your appliances from your smartphone, tablet, or even voice commands.  Many of these smart systems can keep an eye on your energy use and give you real-time info. This helps you figure out where you can be even more energy-smart and make choices that save you money. You could adjust your thermostat settings, switch to energy-efficient appliances, or even spot any energy-wasting issues that need fixing.
