Find Ways to Make Your Home Efficient

What's Wrong with This Picture?

Homes 10+ years old typically need (1) upgrades to air conditioning and heating equipment, (2) improvements to the duct system, and (3) weatherization measures.




Potential problem areas include:

  • Inefficient, incorrectly sized air conditioning and heating equipment older than 10 years old
  • Poorly-designed, uninsulated, leaky air ducts
  • Lack of weatherstripping and sealing for doors and other areas
  • Inadequate attic insulation
  • No solar shading on windows
