Filling in the gaps.
Our GAP package, which includes everything listed below, fills in the gaps between conservation and production. In order for solar to make the most sense, it is important to conserve as much energy as possible to maximize the effect of the energy you produce. Our GAP package focuses on the area of the home where the most energy is unintentionally wasted - your attic!
Solar Attic Fan
Attic temperatures can reach over 150F during the summer without proper ventilation. Our attic fans offer an effective solution to this problem by continuously removing attic heat and moisture buildup throughout the day. The result is a more comfortable home that requires less energy to cool for absolutely no cost of operation.Start Now
Attic Air Sealing
Hot air rises. Without air sealing an attic, warm air escapes. Simply adding insulation will not stop the escaping warm air. The EPA estimates that the typical American home has enough leaks, holes and gaps to be equal to an open window every day of the year.
Every attic needs proper ventilation. We are not stopping the proper air exchange in the attic - we are only stopping the exchange between the house and the attic.Start Now
Programmable thermostats save money, there's no doubt about that, but they don't save money if you never program them or if you constantly use the home function to override the programming. With the Nest there is no need to manually program the device because it learns your routine. Even when the program changes on the fly, the Nest automatically adapts and saves you money on heating and cooling.Start Now
LED Light Bulbs
Incandescent bulbs produce light using electricity to heat a metal filament until it becomes "white" hot or is said to incandesce. As a result, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat.
LEDs are "directional" light sources, which means they emit light in a specific direction. For this reason, LED lighting is able to use light and energy more efficiently with up to 85% energy savings.Start Now
Blown in Insulation
Blown insulation is much more airtight than standard insulation that comes in the form of rolled batting. The blown material is smaller and able to get into the tiny cracks and crevices of your attic, where air typically leaks through. This versatile material can fill in around beams, pipes and other uniquely shaped objects and spaces.
Its ability to seal tightly makes it a much better and more energy efficient solution.Start Now
When the sun heats a roof, it's primarily the sun's radiant energy that makes the roof hot. Much of this heat travels by conduction through the roofing materials to the attic side of the roof. The hot roof material then radiates its gained heat energy onto the cooler attic surfaces, including the air ducts and the attic floor.
A radiant barrier reduces the radiant heat transfer from the underside of the roof to the other surfaces in the attic.Start Now
