Contrary to popular belief, window and door replacement is not the top priority in reducing energy costs. The most cost-effective way to make your Bedford, Somers or Westchester home more energy efficient is to carry out air sealing work and install high-performance insulation. Understanding your house as a system is paramount in selecting the appropriate solution for your home.

Thermal Envelope

The Thermal Envelope is quite simply the separation of conditioned and unconditioned space in your home. There are two main parts to the Thermal Envelope, the Thermal Boundary (Insulation) and Pressure Boundary (Air Barrier). These two boundaries should be aligned and continuous around your home. The Thermal and Pressure Boundary characteristics play a key function in your homes comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

A major cause of energy loss in your home is due to the Stack Effect. The photo above is an example of how the Stack Effect works. During the heating season, warm air inside your home rises up and escapes out through holes in the top of the building envelope. Any air that escapes out the top of your home, is replaced by an equal amount of cooler air drawn in through the bottom.

During the summer, the stack effect is reversed and as a result, any improvements made to your home's Thermal Envelope will result in year-round comfort and energy savings.

An energy audit is the only true way to obtain a full and accurate understanding of how your Thermal Envelope is performing.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • HH performed a comprehensive energy audit and suggested three waves of work. We have completed the first wave - sealing the home from infiltration and insulating a floor that was directly exposed to the cold. Amazing difference in comfort level after the work was complete.
