Save on energy bills with Home Performance
In one of our homes we calculated that there is more square footage in the attic then in the living space. With vaulted ceilings there is more cubic feet of air and it expands, is superheated and penetrates down into the home through leaky areas like electrical outlets, light fixtures, etc. Another strategy was to upgrade the attic ventilation and get rid of the superheated air. Turbines and electrical fans on a thermostat did the job nicely! We estimated that it resulted in a 35% to 45% reduction in air conditioning cost after all this was installed. We removed the heat at it’s source. Winter of course the idea is to keep cold air out, by insulating, covering the fans and installing the barrier the natural gas prices dropped 30% to 35%.
Sure, twice a year you have to put on/take off the fan covers and pay for the initial installation, but think of the return on investment! The easiest part of all this is picking up the phone and calling us for a free initial Home Performance consultation. Or you can go to our Contact Us page.
