Five Useful Home Installation Ideas For Homeowners Who Want To Save Money On Their Energy Bills
New year, new installations. What is your home lacking this year?
Fixing up your roof or installing a new door, taking the initiative will do your utility bill a world of good. The American homeowner is constantly put in the position of not just maintaining their home, but picking up the pieces after a heavy storm or an installation gone wrong. Instead of doing the basics and calling it a day reaching out to a remodeling contractor can help you kill two birds with one stone. A new roof can see you saving money on your energy bill, while a new door can create a more comfortable home. Need more ideas?
Here are five easy ways to get the most out of your new installations.
Check The Lifespan Of Your Roof
How is your roof faring lately? Are you noticing a stubborn draft in the house or are you more concerned about your home’s ability to hold up to the rainy season? The roof contracting industry rakes in an impressive $46 billion in revenue each year, with more materials than ever before offered for your perusal. The metal roof is becoming preferred by the majority of new homeowners for its smart price and ability to be easily recycled. Keep in mind the lifespan of your new roof is able to last much longer if it is not built over an existing model.
Install A New Door Or Two
A great way to save money on your energy bill is to cut into the drafts leaking into your house. Door replacement is as easy as reaching out to a commercial construction company and asking about their latest deals. You can even see yourself saving money down the road. A replacement steel door has been found to yield an average ROI of 98%, which is good news for homeowners looking to sell in the future. For homeowners who already have strong door models in place the next tip may be more your style…
Fix Your Siding Or Replace It Outright
Noticing some problems with your siding? You might just want to replace it outright. Over 15% of new homes have composite siding these days, with this percentage expected to increase as more homeowners become privy to the benefits. The paint on composite siding can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years and, according to most professionals, sidings from composite are just more economical than hardwood models. Old, worn out siding has been found to contribute to a loss of up to 10% of your home’s general value.
Swap Out Your Windows For Energy Efficient Models
Just like switching out your old doors and roof for more energy efficient models, so too can you look into better windows for your home. Single-pane glass windows are present in the majority of American homes built before the mid 1990’s, widely considered to be very energy inefficient. Not only do they allow both your heating and cooling to flood out with you none the wiser, they also contribute to increased noise pollution (and the occasional pesky insect intruders). Replacing your standard windows with energy efficient models (as determined by Energystar.gov) will lower your energy bills by at least 8%.
Contact A Commercial Construction Representative
With the new year comes all the new obligations that flood your schedule. Instead of tearing your hair out with frustration over your options let a remodeling service figure out a few things for you. Roofing contractors can inspect your roof for any deeper damage and offer you a consultation on either a replacement or new installation. New home siding colors can be offered to those looking to replace their peeling siding and even homeowners uninterested in a new installation can still consider the benefits a new pair of windows can have on their energy bill.
