Home Performance & Energy Efficiency Portfolio
These homeowners took advantage of the SCEIP program to install a new “Cool Roof,” an 8 kW solar array, new HVAC system and H2O heater, air sealing, bath fans, insulation enhancement and moisture barrier. The conventional furnace and ducts were replaced with a Combined Hydronic air handler which derives its heating source from the most efficient tank H2O heater on the market. Heating efficiency improved from 78% to 96%. Heating costs were reduced over 50%. This customer is able to keep their thermostat at 70 degrees and not experience a higher utility bill.
These clients wanted the temperature of their home cool when it was hot and warm when it was cold outside, in their 1989 custom built home. They were experiencing just the opposite. After performing a Home Performance Energy Assessment (HPEA) we determined there was ventilation issues in their bathrooms had poor levels of insulation in their attic, leaky ducts and an inefficient heating system. We replaced their conventional furnace and ducts with a Combined Hydronic Air Handler which derives its heating source from the most efficient tank H2O heater on the market. Their heating efficiency improved from 78% to 96%!
The owners of this beautiful country home also took advantage of the SCEIP financing program. We installed a new lifetime “Cool Roof,” tighten-up the leaky ducts, repair poor insulation conditions and install a new ground mount 5kW solar array. Their 1st months PG&E bill post Energy Upgrade was 50% lower than the previous month.
