Energy Efficient Remodeling Ideas

 If you’re incorporating energy features in a larger remodeling project, it’s important to remember that now is the time to invest in energy improvements. Adding a new space to a home often necessitates rethinking the heating and cooling system, or adding a new system. Walls, floors and ceilings are removed or altered. Thinking about energy performance now, rather than later, can save you time and money.
  • Increased wall, floor, attic, and basement or crawlspace insulation to meet optimal performance values
  • Complete envelope air sealing (often involving the removal and replacement of existing insulation)
  • Replacement of heating, cooling and/or water heating systems, often with properly sized, high-efficiency, innovative systems (i.e., instantaneous hot water, combined heat and hot water systems, heat pumps)
  • Roof replacement to increase the performance of the building’s envelope
  • Window and door replacement

One of the greatest challenges with improving energy performance in existing homes is financing the upgrades. When it comes down to it, access to capital (cash) is a challenge for most families and businesses, and the cost of even basic weatherization can exceed $5,000 — with greater energy improvements costs can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Financial incentives can significantly offset the cost of energy improvements and include federal, state, utility and manufacturer-based incentives, and loans.
