Interested In Energy Efficient Services In Drury?
Being stuck in a home that’s drafty and poorly insulated is frustrating and miserable, especially during our cold winters. The problem could be due to older windows that don’t insulate the home or poor insulation.
Do you have cold rooms or areas of the home that won’t stay comfortable? Are your windows and doors drafty? If so, you can try as you might to heat or cool the home but only achieve a tolerable level of comfort within.
Homes that are not energy efficient can be improved. American Installations is a Drury, Massachusetts energy efficiency service company who can help you find the cause of the problems and tell you what needs to be done to solve them.

An Energy Assessment Tells All
To find out where your home is wasting energy, an energy assessment is needed. This service will tell you exactly where there are leaks or poor insulation in your home.
Our Drury energy assessments pinpoint all areas where heat transference is occurring throughout the home. This will help you improve the thermal integrity of your home in key places. As an affordable service, it eliminates the guess work when trying to make repairs or solve energy loss problems.
Air Sealing & Waterproofing
Any places where your home is leaking air becomes an entry point for moisture as well. Mold and mildew travel to hidden places where they thrive due to the dark, damp conditions.
Air sealing and waterproofing keep moisture and air from infiltrating your home. Even the best built homes will have critical issues that need to be addressed at some point in time.
Is the caulking around your exterior windows, doors, and siding old? How long has it been since you’ve examined the sealant? Keeping these areas waterproofed and protected ensures you have a more energy efficient home that won’t allow mold and mildew to take hold.
Replace Old Windows With High-Efficiency Windows
One prime area to pay attention to is the windows. If they are older than about 10 to 15 years, you may want to replace them with energy efficient windows.
Today’s glass technologies can help you achieve substantial energy savings. For instance, low e-glass windows can block out most of the UV rays that heat travels on, creating an energy efficient barrier to the outdoors. This keeps your home comfortable with less energy usage.
