3 Ways To Save Energy In Your Hollywood Home

In recent years, people all over Hollywood, Northridge, and Pasadena have been looking to make their properties more energy efficient due to the multiple benefits it brings. Not only does it help save costs on bills, but it also provides greater protection to your property from wear and tear, which can ultimately help you maintain good property value if you ever wish to sell.

Generally speaking, insulation across multiple areas of your home will surely help achieve this, but for the best results, you’ll want to consult with a specialist who will guide you through the specifics.

To ensure that your home is energy efficient, here are some things you should do:

1. Install a Radiant Barrier

A radiant barrier can be a very useful addition to your home because it acts as a barrier against solar radiation. For people living in Pasadena and nearby areas, the climate can become extremely hot and dry during the summer months. To beat the heat, we recommend installing radiant barriers because it will help reduce the pressure on your air conditioner to cool down your home.

These barriers can be installed in attics and crawlspaces because air often leaks from these areas as they can be trickier to insulate. Luckily, our experts are well-experienced in insulation installations across attics, crawlspaces and other areas of your home.

2. Invest in Home Insulation

One of the most effective ways of saving energy is insulating the walls, windows, doors and ceilings of your Hollywood home. You might not realize this, but there are small openings in windows and doors from where cool air can leak outside, which makes your air conditioner work harder and longer to cool your home.

Similarly, your ceilings and walls absorb heat which reduces the cooling effect of your air conditioner, so adding insulation barriers here can also contribute significantly to energy saving. One important aspect you should know about is the R-value of insulation materials, which directly determines how well the material will insulate. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulation.

3. Check the Air Ducts

Air ducts are often one of the more neglected areas of a home. But for a well-insulated home, you should really pay attention to your air ducts, as they can develop cracks and also harbor dirt and harmful bacteria such as asbestos. This compromises airflow and can be dangerous to your health.

If you think that your air ducts might be leaking air, you should get them checked. If they are far too damaged, they will need to be replaced as their function within your home is crucial, i.e. regulating air in the rooms.
