Understanding Energy Efficiency

Improving energy efficiency means using less energy to achieve the same results. This approach not only reduces your environmental impact but also saves money on utility bills and increases your home's comfort. Effective insulation, proper ventilation, and modern windows are key components in achieving a more energy-efficient home.

Our Approach: Personalized and Flexible Solutions

At Green Energy, we prioritize flexibility and personalization. We understand that homeowners have different budgets and preferences, so we offer a variety of energy efficiency solutions that can be tailored to fit your specific needs. Our goal is to guide you through the options and help you make informed decisions that align with your budget and home requirements.

Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in attic insulation is an economical solution for improving your home's energy efficiency. This type of insulation involves blowing small particles of fiberglass, into the attic using special equipment. The loose-fill nature of blown-in insulation allows it to fill gaps and crevices that traditional batt insulation might miss, creating a continuous blanket of insulation. This helps to reduce air leaks, enhance thermal efficiency, and provide a higher R-value, which measures the insulation's resistance to heat flow. Blown-in insulation is particularly beneficial for older homes that may have settled over time or have irregularly shaped spaces that are difficult to insulate with other methods.

Radiant Barriers

Radiant barriers are a unique type of insulation designed to reflect radiant heat rather than absorbing it. These barriers are typically made of a reflective material, such as copper or aluminum, and are installed on the underside of the roof in the attic. By reflecting up to 97% of the sun's radiant heat, radiant barriers help to keep your attic and living spaces cooler, reducing the load on your air conditioning system and leading to significant energy savings. Unlike traditional attic insulation, which primarily slows down heat transfer, radiant barriers actively prevent heat from entering your home, making them an excellent choice for hot climates like San Antonio. Combining radiant barriers with blown-in insulation provides a comprehensive insulation solution that maximizes energy savings and comfort.

Window Replacement

Old, inefficient windows can lead to significant energy loss. Upgrading to modern, energy-efficient windows helps prevent heat loss in the winter and reduce heat gain in the summer. This not only lowers your energy bills but also creates a more comfortable living environment. Energy-efficient window replacement, featuring double or triple panes windows, low-E coatings, and gas fills between the panes, can all contribute to better insulation and reduced energy consumption.

Budget-Friendly Solutions

At Green Energy, we believe that energy efficiency improvements should be accessible to everyone. Our team works with you to identify the best solutions that fit your budget, ensuring you get the most value for your investment.
