Energy Efficiency At Its Best

During these cold winter days you don’t want to be throwing your money out the window (or out of the uninsulated attic) on those energy bills! Unfortunately, many older houses don’t have the proper insulation and ventilation that can make for an energy efficient home. BLB Custom Building strives to build and restore sustainable homes that keep energy costs low, while maintaining their historic charm.

In a recent build, a Newbury homeowner was concerned about a draft in his third floor office space. By insulating the crawl space (seen in picture below), and adding necessary ventilation, BLB Custom Building was able to stop the draft, create a moisture control strategy, and lower the homeowner’s energy bill.
