A common question is "WHY ARE MY UTILITY BILLS SO HIGH?" Some causes are not controllable, such as the cost of fuel or the price of electricity. Others have remedies. The goal is to make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable!
From WIKIPEDIA: A building envelope is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building, including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer. The building envelope is all of the elements of the outer shell that maintain a dry, heated or cooled indoor environment and facilitate its climate control.
When your house is well-insulated, you will be more comfortable having a lower temperature setting on your heating thermostat and a higher setting on your air conditioning thermostat.
STEP ONE: Have an in-house evaluation. KJ's Energysavers estimators are experienced energy specialists. They look at your home as an ENVELOPE. The first step is to do a FREE visual exam to identify where air may be escaping from your home in the attic, interior house and basement. Then, diagnostic equipment like thermal scanners and a blower door test may be used to identify other areas and how much loss is actually occurring. A customized proposal with a menu of suggested improvements, with pricing, will be completed.
STEP TWO: Prioritize Improvements that will bring the best return and improve your comfort. As mentioned, insulation and air-sealing in your attic and basement will be at the top of your list. Other suggestions may include insulating exterior walls, replacing doors/windows, etc.
