Summer is here, but it’s never too late to embrace energy efficiency. Apart from switching to energy-saving appliances, especially HVAC units and water heaters, here are not-so-disruptive projects to boost your home’s energy performance:
Ditching your old-fashioned, aging glass units in favor of efficient ones can lower your energy bills in different ways. Modern products have the superior ability to block the sun’s heat-causing rays, admit adequate natural light, reduce thermal transfer, and prevent air leaks.
At Dreamstyle Remodeling, we’re the trusted installer for Renewal by Andersen® in the region. We carry replacement windows that meet the local climate’s energy efficiency criteria for maximum performance. Passing the brand’s exacting Master Installer certification program, all members of our crew guarantee flawless work to seal your wall openings tight.
Depending on the number of windows you need to replace, this project could just take a day or two. Plus, we won’t remove units we won’t be able to replace right away to keep your indoor spaces unexposed to the elements.
Entry and Patio Door Upgrade
Much like windows, investing in high-performance exterior doors goes a long way. Glazed or not, energy-efficient door systems feature advanced weather-stripping and an insulative core material to minimize heat loss.
For our entry doors, we represent ProVia, giving you access to premium steel and fiberglass units. Either material offers a healthy trade-off among beauty, endurance, maintenance, security, cost, and energy efficiency.
For our patio doors, we offer Renewal by Andersen French and contemporary units. Our hinged and gliding patio door systems have an energy-efficient core and a weathertight design to help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.
Entry and patio door upgrades could be included in your window replacement. Since our door systems are custom-built, expect their installation to be fast.
Patio Cover Addition
Other than extending the comforts of your indoor living spaces outside, a patio cover installation helps reduce your cooling needs summer after summer. This home improvement project minimizes the infrared and ultraviolet rays that reach your exterior doors and windows. In turn, a patio cover can shade your glass units and let them work more efficiently.
The complexity of your patio cover design has a direct effect on the project’s timeline. But since it’s an exterior job, your indoor areas will be safe from the mess no matter how long it takes.
