ENERGY EFFICIENCY & SUSTAINABILITY
At R.J. Aley, we believe a high quality home needs to perform as well as it looks. How much oil, gas, or electricity does your home use? How comfortable is it for you and your family? A beautiful home with perfect finishes and high-end appliances is not “high quality,” if the home is drafty, has cold spots, or is plagued by mold due to poor ventilation.
There are many relatively simple and inexpensive things that we can recommend to improve your home’s energy efficiency and make it more comfortable to live in. A more sustainable home has the added benefit of using less fuel, which saves you money each month on heating and cooling costs. This can amount to significant financial savings over the life of your home. In fact, many energy upgrades pay for themselves in just a few years. We will work with you to find the best products that meet your goals and fit your budget.
