Save on Energy Costs and Insulate

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 27, 2013

There are many ways to make your home more energy-efficient and reduce your home heating bills. Insulated homes are comfortable homes. When you home is insulated properly, the temperature remains constant throughout each room in the winter and summer months.

Attic insulation
Loft insulation works by preventing heat from escaping through the roof. It’s relatively cheap and quick to install. The exact amount will vary according to the size of your loft, but it is usually relatively inexpensive. You will also recognize a savings on your investment very quickly.

Wall insulation
Around 35% of heat is lost through the external walls of your home. By insulating your exterior walls, your home will heat up quicker and stay warmer for longer. The process involves drilling holes into the walls of your home and filling the space with insulation.

Usually you will have paid for the investment through energy savings in about two years.

Floor insulation
Installing insulation foam between the joists underneath the floor will trap heat and stop cold air from rising up through the gaps. This is particularly suitable for floorboards and laminate flooring, because they allow more cold air to rise than carpeting.

Improving Home Efficiency is Most Important to Homeowners

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Homeowners concerned about high energy bills have put energy conservation home improvements at the top of their must-do list this year. They are looking for green living upgrades that save money without sacrificing space or style.

Because heating costs are typically one of the highest and most variable home expenses, homeowners are considering energy-efficient zone heating options when embarking on home renovation projects.

Overall we have seen an increase in fireplace makeovers in the last few years. Finding and eliminating wasteful drafts and more efficient heating solutions has lead homeowners to install efficient pellet stoves and wood burning inserts that transform inefficient open fireplaces into high performing heating zones.

Wood burning fireplace inserts and pellet stoves are excellent zone heating options for those in the process of building or renovating a new home and who are looking to outfit their homes with advanced heating technology.

Buying an insert or stove is much like buying furniture, you will find a wide-choice of models that match every lifestyle and design. While evaluating the right size, heating capacity and look of your future stove or insert, also consider these three eco-wise tips:

  1. Only evaluate pellet stoves that meet or exceed EPA standards and are currently tax credit qualified.
  2. Look for an eco-friendly seal and a recycled ingredients label that lists the many ways that a manufacturer has gone the extra mile to produce the highest quality and most energy efficient wood stove, possible.
Today is a great time to invest in a wood stove so you can actually keep some green cash in your pocket. The Federal Bio-Mass Tax Credit extension provides a 10 percent tax credit up to $300 for the purchase of a new biomass heating appliance in 2011. This tax credit helps homeowners save on energy costs by utilizing renewable biomass fuels such as wood and wood pellets.
