Energy Efficient Windows
Windows are essential for any home. However, many are outdated and let your cool air out while letting heat inside. This obviously increases your monthly energy bill and leaves you trying to beat the heat all Summer long. Energy efficient windows and motorized shades solve this problem once and for all. A Grene Homes consultant can help you select windows with multiple panes, low-E coatings, insulated frames, and gas fills. With proper installation, this is a smart investment that pays for itself in only a few years.
High Efficiency HVAC
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) related costs can accumulate to up to 40 percent of your total energy bill. Depending on the age of your current system and how often you’ve received preventative maintenance, your HVAC unit could require an updated model to ensure you are spending less on keeping the temperature in your home just right. One of our trained technicians can assess your current system and suggest a unit with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating over 90 for heating and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating above 13 for air conditioning. Sound confusing? Let us help.
Energy Star™ Kitchen Appliances
Appliances are part of your everyday life. They keep your home running smoothly for everything from cooking, cleaning, and washing the dog. The Energy Star™ program through the federal government is the simplest way to select appliances that can reduce your appliance energy use by nearly 40 percent. For everything from the dishwasher to the washer and dryer to the refrigerator, it has never been easier to pick your own energy efficiency appliances. Take your home up a notch with high-efficiency smart appliances suggested by a Grene Homes consultant.
Windows, HVAC units, appliances – these are all optimal ways to increase the efficiency of your home with one quick and easy investment. However, the real trick to keeping your home cool all Summer long is right in your walls. Poorly insulated attic spaces, leaky doors and windows, and the padding in your walls are all areas that can create energy inefficiency. Once again, our team can help. Through a simple evaluation, one of our Grene Homes technicians can identify these places within your home to repair and ensure that your home continues functioning at the highest efficiency to increase the value of your investment.
