365 Solar Energy has a passion for maximizing the value in what we give our customers. Over the years of installing arrays in homes we started to take note of the common inefficiencies in people’s homes. As a result, we put together our complimentary energy efficiency package. This allows customers to minimize their consumption; we then offset the remaining electric usage with the solar panels.
LED lighting is a highly energy efficient lighting technology. Widespread implementation of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States according to Department of Energy projections. ENERGY STAR rated products, similar to 365’s, use at least 75% less energy, and have up to 25 times the lifespan incandescent lighting according to the US Department of Energy.
The nest thermostat is the perfect addition to any home. The Nest thermostat will learn what temperatures you like and when you like them as well as when you’re more likely to be home, or away. It will automatically build a custom temperature schedule to help save energy and keep you comfortable. You can also adjust that schedule at anytime from your mobile device provided your Nest is connected to WIFI and is EPA Energy Star Certified.
Water heater blankets have become a fast-growing solution to inefficiencies caused by water heaters. They have been shown to add up to 20% efficiency to the water heating portion of your utility bill. They help consumers by reducing the heat loss from a home’s hot water tank as well as boosting response rates when the water heaters cycle.
Blown-in insulation is one of the most common items needed in a home to add energy efficiency. Most homes in the southeast United States are recommended to have an R-value between 38 and 60. At 365 Solar Energy we add an additional 12 inches of blown-in insulation to help our customers maximize their R-value of insulation and minimize their heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
The Attic Stairway Insulator seals the gap created by attic stair access points between the attic space and living space, in residential housing, leading to reduced energy costs throughout the year. The tent has a zipper on it which allows for ease of future access to the attic. It is a great Energy Star addition to any home.
