Improving the energy efficiency of a home is important for reducing energy consumption, lowering utility bills, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
In California, there are various programs and resources available to help homeowners improve their home's energy efficiency.
An energy audit is an assessment of a home's energy use and identifies areas where improvements can be made. Homeowners can hire a professional energy auditor, (Such as US!), or use an online tool to conduct a DIY energy audit. The audit can help identify areas where energy is being wasted, such as air leaks, inefficient appliances, and outdated heating and cooling systems.
It is easy to save energy which then saves you money at home. We can help you find the resources and programs to lower your energy usage, increase the comfort of your home, and help the environment.
Proper insulation is key to maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home. Homeowners can add insulation to their attic, walls, and floors to reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.
Replacing old, drafty windows and doors with new, energy-efficient ones can help improve a home's insulation and reduce energy use.
Upgrading to an energy-efficient heating and cooling system, such as a heat pump, can help reduce energy use and lower utility bills.
Energy-efficient appliances, such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines, can help reduce energy consumption and lower utility bills.
California offers various incentives for homeowners to install solar panels, which can generate renewable energy and help reduce energy costs.
Homeowners can take advantage of various state and federal programs to help finance energy efficiency upgrades, such as the California Energy Commission's Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) Program, which offers financing for energy efficiency upgrades.
In addition, the California Energy Commission offers a website, Energy Upgrade California, that provides homeowners with information, resources, and tips for improving their home's energy efficiency.
