With fuel prices on the rise and increased concern over greenhouse gas emissions resulting in climate change, energy efficiency has become a major concern among homeowners throughout North America. Many older houses built in south coastal British Columbia have the character charm but lack the energy efficient features that are, nowadays, considered to be standard construction practices. There are many areas where homes can be retrofitted to increase their overall energy efficiency, which include: insulation, windows and doors, heating and cooling, air leakage, lighting, hot water heating, water conservation, and indoor air quality. Edgewater Inspections offers consulting practices that can help new and existing homeowners improve their home’s overall energy efficiency. Contact us for more information.
