Easy Ways to Save on Energy Costs in Your Older Jacksonville Home
Older homes are beautiful, but typically, are drafty and expensive to heat and cool. With a few changes, your savings on annual energy costs will reduce monthly utility bills.

Reduce Energy Costs
A whole house energy audit offers savings on energy costs. We are part of Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star national audit program. The comprehensive audit includes evaluating doors, insulation, roofing, windows, and energy usage.
Utility and Energy Savings
An energy efficient HVAC system cuts energy consumption by 35 to 40 percent, which saves on energy costs. Purchase a HVAC system with the highest ratings to get the most savings. We have financing options if you thought a new system was out of your budget.
Upgrading or Installing Insulation
Properly insulated homes increase the efficiency of a HVAC system and the savings on energy costs. The attic is the largest area where heated and cooled air escapes. Inadequate insulation in the attic significantly increases energy loss.
When referring to the envelope, it means the major components that protect your home from the outside elements. It provides a barrier for your home and keeps air leaks to a minimum. Inefficient windows and misaligned doorframes cause your system to work twice as hard. Replacing old doors, windows, and roofs with energy efficient materials increases a home’s value when it is time to sell.
