3 Aspects of Energy Efficiency Most Homeowners Neglect

Energy efficiency means doing more with less energy. All homeowners stand to benefit from that. First of all, efficient energy use saves you money by lowering your monthly bills. It enhances quality of life by contributing to a more comfortable home environment and helps the environment as well.

Most homeowners understand the major advantages of living in an energy-efficient home. Even so, they often overlook certain aspects that might help them increase the energy efficiency of their homes.

In this article, we are going to focus on three of them.

1. AIR TIGHTNESS

Air tightness is crucial when it comes to creating a comfortable, energy-efficient home environment. A house that is not airtight requires more energy to maintain a comfortable living temperature all year long.

When outside air infiltrates your house, it not only increases your heating costs but also diminishes the comfort of your house. With SuperFOIL insulation, that is not going to happen, as it provides an airtight barrier that other types of insulation are not able to offer, thus contributing to a higher overall performance.

2. PROPER INSULATION

Quality insulation is key when it comes to increasing the energy efficiency of your home.  A house that is properly insulated requires less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable living temperature throughout the year.

So, if you don’t want to pay unnecessary heating or cooling costs, you need to make sure you install insulation in the right places of your house and that you only use high-quality materials. You’ll want to use products that have been certified and tested in order to get the best results.

Our products can be used in many different ways to meet the requirements of Building Regulations, depending on your particular needs. Also, we can provide our clients with accredited third-party U value calculations by SAP qualified professionals.

3. LANDSCAPING

When it comes to things most homeowners neglect when trying to make their homes more energy-efficient, this one is surely among the most common ones. The truth is that your home’s surroundings play a key role in regulating its illumination and temperature. This means it also has a big influence on how much energy you are using.

For instance, trees are a natural barrier against wind and do a great job providing shade in the hot season. The important thing to remember here is that the landscaping choices you make can have an impact on how much sun or wind actually reaches the walls of your home.
