With the coming of any new year, Californians inevitably look towards ways in which to improve the way they live their lives. Sometimes, this comes down to eating healthier or exercising more, but what about your home? It’s not difficult to neglect the importance of your home’s energy efficiency, especially when you’re working on other aspects of your life.
As winter descends on homeowners in the Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, and Folsom areas, many homeowners are spending more time inside and running their heating systems on the regular. Now is an especially important time to consider the efficiency of your home. A key factor to consider is the status of your home’s air sealing and insulation.
It’s been a hot summer in Foothills, El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay, and Citrus Heights, but now temperatures are on the decline. Is your home ready? Fall is the perfect time to weatherize. There are 3 major parts of the home weatherization process, each of equal and synergistic importance to the other.
Early fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Foothills. It’s also a time for slowing down, which means taking a moment to look at whether or not you’re ready for winter. Cooler temps will be here before you know it, and there are a few things that all residents in Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Citrus Heights and Granite Bay can benefit from focusing on as we continue to transition into fall.
This late summer season is a great time for homeowners in El Dorado Hills, Citrus Heights, Folsom, and beyond to start thinking about ways to improve home efficiency (aka “home performance”) as we make the transition into a new season. There are a lot of different elements that need to be taken into consideration when striving to improve home efficiency, some of which can actually affect the health of you and your family.
Many homeowners in the El Dorado Hills, Folsom and Sacramento areas are increasingly considering going solar. Some have seen the impact solar power has had on their neighbors, while others are simply interested in “going green” and lowering their carbon footprint. No matter your reasons for switching to solar, it’s important to ensure that you’re taking the right steps ahead of time.
There’s never a bad time to get a home energy audit, but mid-summer is a great time to schedule one. As outdoor temperatures reach triple digits, the differential between outside and inside air is quite dramatic, providing an excellent opportunity to test how tightly your home’s perimeter (or “building envelope”) is sealed.
Summer is in full swing in the Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Greater Sacramento areas, and most homeowners don’t have insulation on the brain right now. Many believe that insulation is only used for keeping homes warm and toasty throughout the winter months, but that’s simply not true. The fact is, insulation matters year-round, whether it’s warm or cold outside. It’s a huge part of home performance and should never be overlooked, especially if you’re trying to keep conditioned air from escaping your home.
For a lot of homeowners in the Foothills area, switching to solar is an enticing prospect. Many homeowners, unfortunately, believe that the move to solar is difficult or confusing, which simply isn’t true. California Energy Services proudly offers top-quality solar installations. In addition, we partner with various financing and incentive programs throughout the state to make sure that solar is a reality for homeowners.
