There are more steps a homeowner can take, such as remodeling the home to improve energy performance, especially in older homes. Roof replacement as well as window and door replacement are examples; for instance, wood framed doors are better than metal frames for energy efficiency. Likewise, a hollow door will cause the air to infiltrate through.
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.
