Energy Improvements

Renu

According to the U.S Department of Energy, the typical U.S. family spends about $1,900 a year on home utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted; and each year, electricity generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. With the help of the award-winning energy-efficiency experts at Renu Building & Solutions, the good news is that there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home.

The key to achieving these savings in your home is a whole-house, energy-efficiency plan. Renu Building & Energy Solutions begins every project from a whole-house, integrated-systems approach where your home is initially viewed as a single entity consisting of several interdependent components or systems. For example, one home’s heating system is not just a furnace – it’s a heat-delivery system that starts at the furnace and delivers heat throughout the home using a network of ducts. Even a top-of-the-line, energy-efficient furnace will waste a lot of fuel if the ducts, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not properly sealed and insulated. Taking a whole-house, integrated-systems approach with Renu Building & Energy Solutions helps ensure that any dollars you invest to save energy are spent wisely.

Energy-efficient improvements not only make your home more comfortable, they can yield long-term financial rewards as well. In addition to reducing your monthly utility bills and helping provide increased energy independence as energy prices increase, energy-efficient improvements often bring a higher selling price should you ever decide to sell your home.
