Energy Star products conserve energy
and perfom more efficiently

  • Energy Star Products - Energy Star windows and doors with Low-E glass, Energy Star-rated appliances and light fixtures, and Water Star-rated low-flow plumbing fixtures are the most popular remodeling products.
  • Spray foam attic insulation - When applied directly to the underside of the roof deck, spray foam insulation seals the attic space from air infiltration. It also increases the efficiency and longevity of a home's heating and cooling equipment, particularly when the air-handler is located in the attic.
  • Higher efficiency heating and cooling equipment - Higher SEER ratings translate into lower electric bills. Variable speed air handlers will cycle air more frequently than a standard air-handler, which has the added benefit of helping reduce humidity in the home during the hotter seasons.
  • Solar water heating - Using natural heat from the sun, solar collectors can provide a ready source of hot water. By lowering the utility usage, this system can pay off the initial investment in the first few years.
  • Tankless waters heaters - These water heaters are more energy efficient because they heat water only on demand while also providing an unlimited supply of hot water. In addition, tankless water heaters occupy very little space and can be installed either indoors or outdoors.
