Efficient Home Tour by CCRES

Energy efficiency is not just for older homes. Over four years of home energy evaluation data show that a home’s efficiency is not directly correlated to its age. Even if your home is relatively new, you could be saving valuable energy and money with some simple steps.

CCRES can recommend and implement energy upgrades and repairs to improve your home’s efficiency, such as insulation, water heaters, high efficiency heating and cooling equipment and pool pumps.

Insulation—Proper insulation allows your home to retain heat and maintain temperature. We will recommend what kind and quantity of insulation you need for your family’s comfort and for energy efficiency.

High Efficiency Water Heaters—You can significantly reduce your monthly water heating bills by selecting the appropriate water heater for your home.

High Efficiency Heating/Cooling Systems—Heating and cooling equipment uses more energy and money than any other system in your home. Advances in heat exchangers, refrigerants and other HVAC technologies in recent years have greatly improved the operating efficiency of heating and cooling systems, saving you money and easily maintaining a comfortable temperature.

Air Sealing—Most homes have small cracks and holes where the air you paid to heat or cool leaks outside. CCRES thoroughly seals your building envelope to keep conditioned air in and dust, mold and allergens out.

Duct Sealing and Repair—If your furnace is frequently turning on and off, or if you have some rooms that are too hot or cold—these are signs that your ducts may be leaking or are poorly designed. Sealing ducts can help improve indoor air quality by reducing the risk of pollutants entering ducts and circulating through your home.

Solar Thermal—Solar thermal systems allow you to harness the power of the sun to both heat water and your home. CCRES does not currently sell solar thermal in all markets, but we can recommend a system for your home.

Solar Electric—Converting sunlight into electricity lowers energy costs and reduces dependence on rising rates.

Pool Pumps—Replacing your old pool pump with a properly programmed high efficiency, variable speed model can dramatically reduce your electric load.

Energy Star Appliances—Of all the appliances in your home, washers, dryers and refrigerators use the majority of the total appliance bill (nearly 90%). CCRES does not currently sell appliances, but we can recommend more efficient models for you.

Window Replacement—Replacing single pane windows in your house with double pane, low emissivity (low-e) windows reduces outside noise and drafts. CCRES does not currently install new windows, but we can recommend a more efficient window design for your home.
