Living in the southeast, we know how hot the summers can get here in the Carolinas, especially in the “famously hot” city of Columbia, and how high those bills can climb. One of the biggest culprits of these high bills are the windows in our homes. They account for up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling needs.
Things such as improperly installed insulation, out-dated framing techniques, and even the smallest gaps that may not even be visible can cost home owners hundreds or more every year. Chances are that a typical new code-built home will lose more air than you might expect but thanks to improvements in framing, insulation, and high performance windows, our eBuilt homes use 25-35% less energy than a typical new home.
