According to www.energystar.gov, products with the blue ENERGY STAR® label are independently certified to save energy, save money, and protect the climate.
So, what are some ways to cut costs and put a little more cash in your pocket in 2020? Here are a few key areas where Allstar Construction can help!
If your windows are drafty, leak or swell shut during certain times of the year, it may be time to update them. Pella® and Marvin® offer ENERGY STAR certified replacement windows. ENERGY STAR certified windows save Americans an average of 12% on their energy bills each year.
Amazingly, there are energy-efficient shingles available that your neighbors have been taking advantage of for years. Now it’s your turn! Owens-Corning offers the COOL Roof Collection Shingles in a variety of styles and beautiful new color pallets to update your curb appeal, which are ENERGY STAR certified, too. Remember tax season is just around the corner. Certain energy-efficient products or upgrades may qualify your home for tax credits that you can take advantage of!
Evaluate attic seals and insulation. Improper insulation can cause your attic to be warmer than your living room. This can possibly result in ice dams & ceiling leaks from condensation buildups during these cold winter months. Proper insulation can keep your energy costs down and save you from much bigger problems down the road.
By replacing light bulbs using ENERGY STAR certified products, they use up to 90% less energy and last approximately 15 times longer.
Whether it’s time to replace drafty windows or update your insulation and stop those recurring ice dams, Allstar Construction is ready to give you a complimentary in-home inspection and get you started on the right path for cutting energy costs in 2020.
