High heating bills are a huge concern for most Vermonters. An energy renovation can save as much as 30% on home energy bills.
Dollar-for-dollar, energy renovation improvements are the most cost-effective improvements you can make to your home. They lower your costs of maintaining the building, increase your comfort, reduce potential risks from mold and moisture, and improve the value of your home. All this, and it's a tax-free gain in property value.
Most importantly, energy renovation allows you to burn less fuel and save money.
Return on Investment
When we do an energy assessment, we look for the most effective ways to improve performance, increase comfort, and reduce cost. We look at the daily-life changes—setting back the thermostat when away—as well as the once-in-a-lifetime changes, like pumping in expanding foam insulation at the cellar sill level. You may not see the insulation, but you will feel the difference every day.
The project work we typically give priority to includes work in the attic and the cellar, two prime targets for air infiltration. We review the changes needed in these areas, and develop an estimate of fuel savings.
When you get your energy assessment report and estimate from EnergySmart of Vermont, we provide a prioritized list of renovations that we're recommending, the cost of our work, and our estimate for your fuel savings. We will work with you to make a plan that will address your top priorities for your home.
