Making the home more energy efficient
Most of our clients are most interested in making the home at least 10% more energy efficient by adding additional insulation in the attic areas of the home. We also recommend sealing all external penetrations to reduce air infiltration which is also a huge energy leakage source. We then upgrade lighting in the home to energy efficient CFL or LED lighting as this will reduce lighting loads by 75%. Heating and air systems should also be tuned up with special attention paid to the sealing of all home ductwork. If appliances are updated it is imperative that Energy Star rated units are purchased as this assures that the new dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, microwave, and electrical devices will all use 50% less energy. Plumbing devices like sink fixtures, showers, and toilets can easily be retrofitted to use 50% less water. If you do decide to build a new home in the Asheville area then please let us assist you with that land search as homes, land and surrounding mountain area real estate is a real bargain these days.
