Shutting off the lights and turning off the water are simple ways to save money and “go green.” But an increasing number of homeowners are taking it a step further. When Jon Langford built his Anglo Caribbean white stucco home in Davidson two years ago, he tried to incorporate technologies that would maintain comfortable temperatures as efficiently as possible.
Throughout the 5,700-square-foot home, “We installed good quality windows with overhangs to shade direct sun exposure,” says Langford. “We also have an automated climate system zoned into several areas. It adjusts the temperature at night or while we’re away and makes it easy to heat and cool just the parts of the house that we’re using.”
But the greatest impact to Langford’s energy bills came after he reinsulated his home. After interviewing three companies, he chose EnergyOne of the Carolinas, a spray foam insulation contractor located in Charlotte. Owner Stephen Davis explains why the option is so effective. “Spray foam creates an air barrier,constructing a complete sealed home envelope, so the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard…”
