Energy Efficient Homes in California
December 24, 2015

If there’s one thing that homeowners in Vacaville and Davis need to worry about, it’s their home envelope. Your home’s building envelope is what separates its comfortable, conditioned interior from the outside elements, and it’s just as crucial for keeping your home cool in the summer as it is keeping it warm in the winter. Unfortunately, many California homes suffer from poorly designed or constructed building envelopes, resulting in year-round discomfort and problems with energy efficiency.

The solution? Boost your home’s building envelope and watch the savings roll through the door!

Our Energy Upgrade Services

At Greiner, we believe that each and every customer we serve deserves to get the most out of home performance, no matter how old their homes are. Our energy upgrade services will put a stop to a poorly-designed or constructed building envelope, and it all starts with a home energy audit.

An energy audit is like a trip to the doctor for your home. It allows us to take each and every aspect of your home’s building envelope into close consideration in order to develop a plan that will help to solve whatever problems may exist. In many cases, it comes down to a lack of proper air sealing and insulation, both of which the team at Greiner is well-versed in fixing. True efficiency cannot be attained until the building envelope is as tight as possible, which is we aim to do each and every time we approach a home performance upgrade project.

The Benefits of Tightening the Building Envelope

If you’ve been living in a home that suffers from a building envelope that’s not up to par, there’s a good chance you’ve gotten used to it at this point. Once you improve the envelope, however, the benefits become as clear as day and include the following:

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality

  • Longer System Life

  • Reduced Energy Bills

  • Increased Home Comfort Levels

Improved indoor air quality is one of the most important benefits on this list, as it ensures that pollution from outside the home isn’t making its way in and affecting the health of you and your family. Many people find themselves breathing cleaner and more free once they’ve sold the issue of outside air infiltration, and with air sealing and insulation, the problem disappears as soon as the job is completed.

Your building envelope is not something that should ever go overlooked. Contact us today to learn more and to have yours evaluated by a Greiner home performance professional.
