How to make your dream home work smarter
Now more than ever, building a new home or renovating one with eco-friendly goals in mind makes great sense. When you aim to help conserve Earth’s resources, you’ll also likely save your own resources in the long run. With Hawaii’s residential electricity rates among the highest in the nation — and rising — it’s time to make our homes work smarter.
According to the U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, of the $2,000 the average American spends paying for energy annually, $200-$400 could be going to waste from drafts, air leaks around openings, and outdated cooling and heating systems. That’s not good for the environment or your wallet.
HK Construction, a fourth-generation kamaaina company, helps homeowners build or renovate homes that are Earthand budget-friendly. The company’s experts incorporate a wide range of features, components, and designs to help reduce waste and lower utility bills.
Fundamental design and construction standards must be executed. Warm air leaking into your home and cool air leaking out through cracks and gaps will waste energy. HK Construction will ensure that your new or renovated home is properly sealed and insulated from top to bottom.
The company will build your home with proper sequencing and safety at the forefront to maximize and protect your investment.
The addition of solar panels and the use of Energy Star-rated windows and appliances, energy-efficient lighting, an energy-efficient hot water heater, water-saving shower heads and toilets, and other quality products will also help achieve your goals.
You can attend one of the company’s complimentary seminars to find out more about how to renovate or build an eco-friendly home. Design/Build seminars are scheduled at 6 p.m. July 14 and 11:30 a.m. July 16. A Kitchen and Bath seminar is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. July 16.
