Energy Efficiency Home Improvement Projects

Improve Your Home's Energy Efficiency

Houses don’t stay “new” forever. Every passing year brings wear and tear upon your home, opening up cracks, gaps, and other opportunities for air to escape and water to intrude. Here are a few ways to secure your home and avoid wasting money this summer.

Calk windows and doorways.

A quick touchup can keep air inside the house from escaping throughout the summer. A tube of calk costs almost nothing compared to how much you will save over time.



Attic insulation check.

When was the last time your attic got some attention? If neglected, your attic could be the number one reason why your AC is running all summer long.



Roof & siding repairs & touch-ups.

“April showers bring May flowers,” but if your roof has a leak, April showers may also bring mold and mildew.



Appliances & HVAC upgrades.

Austin residents should check out Austin Energy’s Power$aver Program that offers rebates and incentives to homeowners looking to upgrade their refrigerators, freezers, air conditioning, and heating systems, or even those looking to add solar panels to their roof.



Front & back door repairs.

You’ll want to repair gaps in the weather stripping, fill cracks in the door, replace cracked or broken glass panes, and fix any damaged hardware that might keep the door from shutting completely, thus allowing air to escape.
