Improve your home comfort, reduce your cooling costs,  increase energy efficiency and protect your home against storms

When considering home improvement upgrades to save on energy costs people usually think about solar panels and maybe windows, however, there is a proven 3 step solution that can help to keep your home cooler, cleaner, and safer while significantly reducing energy expenses. Read on to learn more about less expensive cooling.

Step 1: Spray Foam Insulation

  • Install the right Insulation: Your home can lose a lot of cool, clean air through poor insulation in your walls, roof, and around your windows. Many homes have older insulation types, like fiberglass or Batt insulation, that often let the cool air out through spaces and openings. In a hot climate like South Florida, closed-cell spray foam is the best solution for keeping humidity out and cool air in. It might be slightly more costly than other insulation products but the savings on your electricity bill make it well worth it. Installation is also important, make sure to use a top-quality spray foam product and experienced installers to maximize the benefits of this advanced type of insulation. A valuable added benefit of closed-cell spray foam insulation is that it also helps to keep your home’s structure safer from wind and flooding in bad storms and hurricanes, not to mention much less dust inside every day.

Step 2: Updated Windows

  • Install Storm Windows: Hurricane impact windows can withstand highly damaging winds of 60mph or higher. In addition to critical protection from wind and water, the superior construction of these windows also helps to keep your cool air inside your home. When combined with proper insulation updated windows can help to significantly reduce the escape of cool air and so making it less expensive to keep your home cool.

Step 3: Efficient Air Conditioning

Efficiency starts with your unit: An old or technologically outdated air conditioning unit can end up costing you much more than replacing it. Older units are expensive to maintain but more importantly, they often use a lot more energy to keep your house cool. Newer, more efficient units make the air in your home cleaner and cooler with lower electricity usage. When combined with effective insulation and windows to keep that cool air in your home, the cost-saving in energy use is significant.

Maintenance is key: These 3 steps are good for you, your family, and for the planet. Preparing your home to be more efficient pays you back in several ways not only by saving you money but also by improving comfort and reducing damage during a hurricane or flood. As we deal with Hurricane Season and the added heat of a South Florida summer it’s a good time to consider investing in your home to make it more efficient, cleaner, and safer. There are also easy financing opportunities available for each of these services.

The HVAC filter’s job is to remove dust and allergens from the air in your home. So replacing it on a regular basis is essential to a healthier, cooler home. Scheduling regular maintenance on your entire HVAC system (AC UnIt, Ducts, etc) will ensure that you are maximizing the savings on your energy costs. Regularly maintaining your AC system can also avoid expensive big-ticket repairs and downtime.
