The majority of people are interested in increasing their home’s energy efficiency, lowering energy costs, and moving towards a sustainable future - but aren't clear on which improvement projects yield the largest energy savings. We can help as your home performance contractor.
We summarize and define our philosophy and priorities regarding sustainability, green building, and energy modifications with the following:
#1. The on-going consumption of energy to operate, condition, and light a building, as well as the energy embodied in on-going maintenance is the largest source of environmental damage and resource consumption due to buildings. It is not the embodied energy required to produce building materials and construct a structure.
#2. The greenest thing you can do is achieve a high-integrity thermal envelope so your structure consumes as little fuel as possible for heating and cooling which represent at least 50% of home energy consumption. Your home's external shell or enclosure should be your first priority and is more important than all the systems within it. Before you can control and condition air efficiently, you must first enclose it.
There are a large number of energy tax credits from cities, utilities, and the federal government which are enabling homeowners to affordably update their homes and reduce their monthly energy costs. For example, you may be eligible for up to a $1,500.00 Tax Credit by investing in energy efficient improvements to your home. For more information, visit energystar.gov/taxcredits and consult your Tax Advisor to find out how you may be eligible for a federal tax credit under the "American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009".
