Energy Efficiency for a Long Island Home with New Building Materials
In almost any aspect of life today, people care about “going green”. A great way to help the environment is to increase the energy efficiency of one’s home, and this is something you can expect most clients to take into account when remodeling. Along with HVAC system upgrades, the installation of the right doors and windows is an essential move toward energy efficiency. The Department of Energy points out that in every household, a good amount of energy goes to waste due to old and inefficient windows that permit excessive heat loss or gain. By upgrading windows and doors to provide better insulation, heating and cooling costs are reduced as better thermal regulation is achieved.
