Air sealing is foundational to cutting down on energy usage. It accounts for 20% to 40% of heating and cooling costs for the typical residence. After pin pointing the areas of air leakage in your home, our team will fill and seal those areas in order to reduce cost and increase comfort.
Almost every home has some insulation, but it’s not always doing its job. Insulation can be easily damaged or ruined from moisture, animals, and age. One of the key elements of improving your home's efficiency is improving your insulative barrier. We offer a variety of insulative solutions such as blown-in cellulous insulation and state of the art spray-foam insulation to meet the specific needs of your home.
Most home owners give very little thought to the ducts feeding air into their houses, but in reality ducts are the gate keepers to the air you breathe. If the tubing that conveys air into your house has holes or leaks in it, then conditioned air will be leaking out and damp or stale air from your crawl spaces or attics will be creeping in. Sealing the duct system is one of the best ways to ensure good air quality as well as to significantly improve heating and cooling cost.
Closed Crawl Spaces
Today, building science research has proven that the old system of the vented foundation is not the healthiest, most protective, or efficient way to deal with your crawl space. Many homes in the southeast struggle with poor moisture management. Often moisture conditions reveal themselves through mold or moisture damage in the crawl space, musty odors, high moisture in the living area, wood rot in framing members, and even insect infestations. These problems can not only be eliminated but you can save 15% more energy by sealing your crawl space. This is the new and improved way of dealing with crawl space moisture and energy management.
An average American family of four people uses approximately 330 gallons of water per day which totals over 120 thousand gallons per year. Basic water conservation improvements can help you significantly cut back on the amount of water needed for your family. Each year, a quarter of the needed water for your home falls on your roof and is lost. A rain water collection system is an effective way of reducing water consumption. It not only allows you to efficiently use natural rain fall but it also means that you are less dependant on city water sources if a power outage or natural disaster should occur.
Becoming more efficient helps you do more than save a few bucks. In a day where our power is wired in from the power company, our water is piped in from the water company, and our food is hauled in from the farm 500 miles away, we have become incredibly dependent on big business to provide for our daily needs. In the event of a natural disaster or any other crisis that would compromise big business’s ability to serve us, most of us today would be left with a small supply of the necessities for sustaining life. Energeyes’ offers alternative energy systems, water collection systems, a backyard garden in a box, and other solutions to help you live more inexpensively and independently. Sustainable living prepares your family for whatever the future will hold.
