Residential Services

At Home Energy Solutions of the Triad, we prescribe to the concept where the house works as a system, where every system within the home works interdependently of one another. Each system within the home, if altered in any way, will have a direct effect on other systems within the home, whether that effect is positive or negative.

Case in point: If the insulation level in your home is low, it will have an adverse effect on how long your heating and cooling system runs.

Considering that every home is different, and the habits of those that live in it always differ from other homes, there is no silver bullet to energy savings and comfort management. In other words, no one product, whether they be replacement windows, or insulation will solve these issues in every home. That is why we highly recommend having a free certified home energy analysis performed before you make these investments.

Air Sealing

Sealing air leaks is one of the most affordable strategies to help you save money on your energy bills, feel more comfortable in your home, and reduce your energy consumption to decrease your impact on the environment. In most cases, the money spent on sealing air leaks is recouped within the first year through lower energy bills. Perhaps that is why air sealing is #1 on the Department of Energy's (DOE) priority list for weatherization of single-family homes.

Duct Sealing

The ducts in your home are used to bring the conditioned air from your heating and cooling systems to the rooms of your house. But if your home is like most, around 20% of the air that passes through the ducts escapes through holes, cracks and poorly connected ducts and registers. As a result, your heating and cooling systems need to work that much harder to keep you comfortable, which increases your energy bills. Leaky ducts can also make it difficult – or impossible – to get a room feeling comfortable, and can lead to poor air quality.

A properly sealed duct system can make your home safer, more comfortable and more energy efficient, while improving indoor air quality and doing less damage to the environment.

Insulation

Insulation works by reducing the movement of air, to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. More specifically, air moves naturally from a warmer space to a cooler place. So in winter, the heated air inside your home wants to escape to the outside, or to the unheated spaces of your home, such as the attic, crawl space or garage. Insulation helps to keep the warm air from escaping, which prevents your heating source from working unnecessarily.

Window Replacement

While replacement windows are not usually the first line of defense when it comes to your home's energy savings, there are times when they make perfect sense. With that understanding in mind, Home Energy Solutions of the Triad has partnered with the Pella Windows and Doors for those clients who demand the best in architectural wood clad fenestration products. For those who prefer the high thermal qualities of a vinyl window, we are an authorized dealer for PlyGem Window and Doors.

HVAC

The most effective thing you can do to prevent a breakdown of your heating and cooling equipment is regular maintenance. Before each winter, have your furnace (or other heating equipment) inspected, cleaned and tuned up. Do the same for your air conditioner (or other cooling equipment) before summer hits. Not only will you be avoiding a system failure when you need it most, your system will work more efficiently – saving you money – and you'll prolong the life of your equipment.

Whole House Ventilation

In a number of cases, relying upon natural ventilation sources alone will not provide adequate air quality to lend to a healthy and durable home. The decision to use a Whole-House Ventilation System will be most typically motivated by you, the homeowner, wanting to maximize your ability to live in a safe and healthy home.

Whole-House Ventilation Systems provide consistently controlled ventilation throughout the house to enhance the inadequate and inconsistent benefits of natural ventilation. Often, these systems use one or more fans/duct systems to exhaust stale air and/or supply fresh air to your home.
