Our team at Smith & Company Homes & Remodeling is passionate about green building techniques, and we want to help you make your home more energy efficient. When it comes to making any building eco-friendlier, one key thing to consider is a principle known as thermal efficiency.
In the context of building design, thermal efficiency refers to the amount of heat added or removed by your heating and cooling systems compared to the amount of energy used to run the system. Since your HVAC system is one of the biggest consumers of energy in your home, finding ways to make your system more efficient can significantly improve your overall energy efficiency.
One of the best ways to improve the thermal efficiency of a building lies not in changing the HVAC system itself, but instead in upgrading the insulation. Your insulation creates a barrier around the exterior of your home (or other building), which significantly reduces passive heat transfer—in other words, it keeps heat energy from leaking through the exterior in either direction.
If your home’s insulation has gaps in it or is starting to break down, heat can leak in and out more easily, which forces your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy to maintain your desired temperature. To combat this effect, our team offers specialized eco-panels, which will keep the heat on the right side of your walls and considerably improve your thermal efficiency.
