MOORE COUNTY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

By Bob Van Houten Moore County Home Builders Association President

Assess Your Home’s Efficiency with an Energy Audit

As the year begins and winter sets in, you may be wondering how to save money on your energy bills this year. Conducting a do-ityourself home energy audit is a fast, relatively simple way to assess how much energy your home consumes and determine what you can do to make your home more energy efficient. A home energy audit will show you where your home is losing energy, how efficient your heating and cooling systems are, and ways to conserve electricity. All it takes is a thorough inspection of the areas listed here and keeping a checklist of the problems you found. Air leaks. Stopping or minimizing drafts can save 5 to 30 percent of your annual

energy costs. Some places to inspect where air commonly seeps from homes include gaps around: baseboards, wall and ceiling junctures, electrical outlets, switch plates, window frames, weather stripping, fireplace dampers, attic doors, windowmounted air conditioners and foundation seals. On your home’s exterior, look at the areas where two different building materials meet, such as corners and areas where siding or brick come together with chimneys or the foundation. If you can rattle windows or see daylight around door or window frames, you likely are losing air. Once you’ve identified the leaks, seal them with caulk, weather stripping or

the same material as the original seal. Replacing windows with new, high-performance ones will improve your home’s energy efficiency and get you a break on your taxes. An inexpensive alternative is to attach plastic sheets around your windows. Insulation. In older homes especially, the amount of insulation in the ceiling and walls may be insufficient for current standards. See if your attic door is insulated and closes tightly. Openings around pipes, ductwork and chimneys should be sealed. Look for a vapor barrier — tarpaper or a plastic sheet — under the attic insulation. To check your walls, make a small hole in a closet or other out-of-theway place and probe

into the wall with a long stick or screwdriver. The area should be completely filled with an insulating material. Fill the gaps in any openings with expanding foam. Flexible caulk should be used to seal any electrical boxes in the ceiling. If your home lacks a vapor barrier, consider painting interior ceilings with vapor barrier paint. This reduces the amount of water vapor that can pass through the ceiling and reduce your insulation’s effectiveness. Heating and Cooling Equipment. Inspect your heating and cooling equipment. See if ducts

and pipes that are located in unheated spaces and your water heater and hot water pipes are insulated. Dirt streaks around your ductwork, especially near the seams, are evidence of leaks. Have your equipment checked and cleaned by a professional annually. If you have a forced-air furnace, replace your filters as soon as they are dirty. Even if they aren’t, replace them every 30 to 60 days. Consider replacing units that are more than 15 years old with a new energy-efficient one. Lighting. Look at the bulbs in your home and determine if a lower-watt bulb would work just as

well for your needs. If you have an area where lights are on for extended periods of time, a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) can save up to 75 percent of the lighting energy of an incandescent bulb. A home audit is a great way to find out your home’s energy deficiencies and make simple improvements that will save you time and money in the long run. For more energy-efficient tips and tricks contact the Moore County Home Builders Association at 910-944-2992 or visit our website at www.mchba.com.

Transforming your exterior: lessons from the professionals

(ARA) - With more and more homeowners choosing to stay in their current homes instead of selling, many are deciding to remodel. If you are thinking about remodeling your home, consider projects that will add style, but will also offer the best return on investment when it comes time to sell. With return on vinyl siding and vinyl window replacement each above 70 percent, according to "Remodeling" magazine's 2010-11 Cost vs. Value Report, it's apparent that homeowners can gain considerable curb appeal and return on investment by upgrading the exterior. "Updating your home with new windows or siding is a great way to instantly boost curb appeal and reduce the maintenance of your home," said John Stephenson, vice president of marketing for Ply Gem, a leading exterior building products company. "But many people are beginning to consider the possibilities of an entire exterior remodel, by combining multiple product categories such as windows, siding and stone veneer. Homeowners can take their

home beyond a simple product replacement, and instead give it architectural style and a new color scheme." Ply Gem and remodeling company Case/Design Remodeling, Inc. offer advice on how to achieve a complete, architecturally-styled exterior remodel based on a recent before and after project. Envision your dream home "Having a vision helps your remodeling contractor understand what style you're looking for," said Bruce Case, president of Case/Design Remodeling, Inc. "Keep in mind, it's also important to select a style that fits with the neighborhood. It may be more difficult to sell in the future if you make a too drastic change." Your remodeler can make style suggestions, or you can drive around older neighborhoods in your area to gauge ideas for what styles might work best. For this project, together with the homeowners who were nominated by the community to receive a free renovation from Case/Design Remodeling, the team decided to transform the exterior using architectural elements of a

shingle home style. This style worked well with the home's more traditional suburban Washington, D.C. neighborhood, and also worked well for renovating the colonial two-story exterior without significant structural changes. Mix and match texture and color More often than not, homeowners stick with the basics when taking on an exterior renovation. However, today's exterior building products allow for infinite options that can take your home to the next level and go beyond simply replacing windows and siding. When remodeling this particular home from a 1970s colonial to a modern interpretation of a shingle style, it was important to incorporate new textures and colors to completely transform the look. "This home had a watered down style, but also had inherent architectural elements to work with," said Deryl Patterson, principal, BSB Design architecture firm. "By replacing the lap siding with shingle siding, the brick with stone veneer, the windows with a colonial grille pattern, and adding red shutters, we were able to give it

When this home was remodeled from a 1970s colonial to a modern interpretation of a shingle style, shown here, it was important to incorporate new textures and colors to completely transform the look.

Before, this home had a watered down style, but was given architectural character and a new color scheme through a complete exterior renovation.

character." Mixing and matching texture and color does not have to be an overwhelming process. Stephenson recommends homeowners look to collections like the Designed Exterior Collection by Ply Gem, which help sim-

plify selection by identifying color palettes and product combinations that work for specific architectural styles. Consider architectural details Beyond texture and color changes, adding minor architectural details can make a big

difference. For this project, a portico and roof gable were added, but did not require any structural changes or interior work. To see more of the renovation described in this story visit www.facebook.com/pl ygem.

Plan now for home improvement throughout the year

(ARA) - If you've finished making your holiday gift list, don't put the pen and paper away just yet. While the holidays take up a lot of attention right now, it's also a great time to look a bit further into the future. With the new year just around the corner, planning for home improvement projects now can help you prioritize and budget. Spending more time indoors at home might be bringing some potential projects to your attention. Maybe you've noticed fraying carpet under your toes, chipped paint on a window frame or a paint color that feels outdated whatever needs to be addressed should get marked down on your fix-it list. Give yourself a deadline for completing the list and then call a household meeting to start prioritizing. One of the most important things you can bring to that meeting is an idea of how much you can afford to spend. Given that the economy is still lagging - and many people are feeling that pull on their pocketbooks - it's wisest to avoid going into debt to accomplish everything you want to do. Setting a home improvement budget gives you parameters to work within as you weigh the importance of each project on your list. However,

you should also come to the table with a reasonable idea of how much it will cost to complete each of the tasks you want to finish. Armed with your list and your budgetary figures, go through each item, weighing the pros and cons of both doing it now and letting it wait. You'll inevitably have a lot of options, including putting things off and saving more money throughout the year, or investing some money in repairs now and letting your savings grow for midyear projects. Naturally, you'll also need to consider the constraints of weather on your projects - if you want to put on a new deck, you'll have to wait until at least spring. Consider the fact that an outdoor project might feel a lot more necessary when warmer weather arrives than it does now. Your long-term plans for your home should also come into play. If you're planning on selling anytime soon, consider carefully whether the projects you plan on doing will pay off at sale time. Additionally, if you plan on catching a buyer's eye, take an objective look at what might help you make the sale. If you're working with a Realtor, you might even want to discuss with them the best fix-ups and repairs within your budget.

properly and pricing it right have proven to be the two main ingredients of selling a home in our market.
