Avoiding the use of energy in the first place is the cleanest and least expensive option — one watt never used is one that doesn’t pollute. That’s why energy utilities prioritize energy-efficient technology and conservation practices, even over renewable energy sources.

Windows and Doors Installation
Efficient windows, doors, and skylights can reduce heating and air-conditioning bills by 12-15% while dramatically improving your home’s appearance.3 And to reduce frustration, they’ll also open, close, and lock flawlessly. This combination of improved appearance, improved operation, and energy efficiency can significantly raise your property’s curb appeal. What’s more, you can recoup 58-80% of the project costs in added home value.
Heating and Cooling (HVAC) Installation
You can save up to $115 or more per month by switching to high efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC).4 These systems work together to keep indoor temperatures at comfortable levels and improve air quality.
Pro Tip: the higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient the air-conditioner. You’ll want a SEER rating of at least 14. The most energy-efficient rating is 23 SEER.
“Cool Roofs” reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than traditional roofs. These effects reduce the amount of heat that gets transferred inside your house, reducing the amount of air-conditioning needed. Homeowners can see a 10-15% reduction in air-conditioning use during the hottest hours of the day. Pro Tip: If you have an attic, you can also get a “Radiant Barrier” installed on the inside of the roof to deflect even more heat.
