Homes are built with high efficiency systems and upgrades not found in standard new homes. These upgrades provide you with a more tightly constructed home, resulting in energy savings and increased year-round comfort.
High efficiency heating and cooling systems
HVAC equipment can account for over 50% of a home’s total energy use. Installing a high efficiency system consumes less energy than a standard system and can significantly reduce energy usage.
High efficiency water heating systems
Much like your HVAC equipment, a high efficiency water heating system will perform better and use less energy than a standard system to help save you money.
Higher insulation levels
Improved, properly installed insulation keeps out excessive heat or cold and helps to even out temperatures between and across rooms.
High-performance low-E windows
Advanced windows prevent heat from escaping your home when the temperature drops outside, and keep heat from coming in when outdoor temperatures soar.
Tightly sealed ductwork
In a typical New Jersey home, ducts leak 20% to 30% of the air forced through them. Duct systems that are sealed and verified by a field test can substantially reduce these leaks, improving the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning systems.
Reduced air infiltration
Outdoor air infiltration makes it difficult to maintain comfort and energy efficiency. Program required draft stopping and sealing reduce air infiltration by sealing off cracks and gaps in the framing and holes for plumbing, mechanical equipment and electrical wiring.
