April 3, 2013

Winter is past and we are gearing up for round two of our exterior insulation Deep Energy Retrofit project in New York. there was a feature in the NEWS , check it out!

As the weather gets nicer, we often consider new siding and new windows, it also may be time to consider new insulation. Any time is a good time to improve R values and reduce air leaks. If going extreme is not what you are prepared to do with a full exterior retrofit, consider that if siding is being replaced it is a great time to blow in dense packed fiber insulation.

If you are in the Syracuse, NY area and want to know more about what we are doing call us!   315-474-6549  or check out our website http://greenhomesamericacny.com/

BAM! Home Performance on Steroids

February 26, 2013

If you could reduce your energy bills by more than 50% would you?  In Syracuse, New York, our office has been working on ways to excel at making your home more energy efficient.  Call it Home Performance on Steroids, an Extreme Energy Makeover or Deep Energy Retrofit, it is a new tool in our tool belt to increase comfort and save energy in your home.

As part of a research project for NYSERDA, GreenHomes America has been experimenting with “kicking it up a notch” as Emeril would say. Last summer in our top secret labs (we had to park a truck elsewhere) we spent some time fine tuning ways to improve homes above and beyond what we usually do.

The projects from this fall and early winter have gone great, and the Steroids metaphor sounds good but really, these results have been achieved with honest hard work, side effect free!  I will be talking more about these projects as well the benefits of Deep Energy Retrofits in future posts.   Stay tuned!

Thanks,

Jason.
