House As A System

There Are Several Elements That Work Together To Keep Your Home’s Energy Efficiency At Its Best – This Concept Is Your “House As A System”.

Although separate from each other, your windows, doors, heating or cooling system, insulation, ventilation, and siding make your house operate as a system. One component always affects another, and can mean the difference between a high or low energy bill. In order to keep your home operating at peak efficiency, ensure all of these potential energy wasters are up to date, properly installed, and designed to work for the size of your home.

Diagram of how the house as a system works to make your home more energy efficient.

Windows & Doors

  • Well-sealed windows and doors eliminate drafts
  • Low-E glass reflects heat back to its source, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter
  • Provides insulation for the openings in your home’s walls, where most energy is lost
  • Year-round savings and comfort

Heating & Air Conditioning

  • A high-efficiency system optimizes dollars spent on utility bills
  • Keeps fresh, clean air circulating
  • Allows your home to maintain an even, comfortable temperature

Insulation

  • Better insulation means less air leakage
  • Stops your heating or cooling system from working overtime
  • Allows for maximum energy savings and comfort

Ventilation

  • Proper air circulation means a cleaner, fresher home
  • Controlled humidity levels create a comfortable, clean living environment
  • Stop uncontrolled air leakage and improve controlled air intake and extraction with proper ventilation

Siding

  • Protects your home from the elements
  • Provides your home with a sealed envelope
