Energy Saving Upgrades for Your Home
We offer the following energy saving upgrades for your home:
Air Sealing Most homes are poorly sealed and have unseen leaks that rob you of the air you have paid to heat or cool. Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air or air from the attic space enters the living space through cracks and openings. If you totaled the air lost through these cracks most homes have the equivalent of an open window in combined air leaks! So Cal Home Remodeling finds and seals the areas in the attic space like plumbing/electrical penetrations, recessed lights and interior wall top plates that allow conditioned air to escape into the attic during the heating season and hot air to infiltrate in from the attic during the cooling season.
Attic Insulation As much as 40% of a home’s energy loss happens through a poorly insulated attic space. So Cal Home Performance specializes in making sure that the attic is insulated up to the current energy standards. Using loose fill blown in cellulose insulation we create a thermal blanket that insulates and reduces air infiltration. Cellulose insulation has a higher R-value and fire rating than traditional fiberglass. Cellulose insulation is made from 85% recycled content reducing landfill waste and your impact on the environment. Homes of all ages need to re-insulate the attic space to reduce utility costs and increase your comfort.
Wall Insulation Homes built before 1972 in Southern California were not required to have wall insulation. With blown cellulose insulation we can safely retrofit those walls creating a thermal shell, making them more efficient than even current energy codes require. From the exterior we drill a 1” hole, the smallest in the industry, to insulate each bay of the exterior wall. With over 15 years experience we can patch and match any texture guaranteeing that you will not be able to see the insulation holes.
Quality Windows and Patio Doors We are proud to offer many of the best replacement windows on the market. Installing an energy efficient window or patio door can reduce your utility costs by eliminating drafts and insulating with the energy efficient dual pane glass. In addition to reducing your utility costs, replacement windows and patio doors reduce outside noise, protect your interiors and carpets from fading and add curb appeal to your home.
