In the past year my family has become in tune with the growing concerns about the environment. We are trying to do our part in going green by recycling, using re-usable bags at the grocery store and changing out our standard light bulbs to fluorescent light bulbs.
To take it a step further I had R&K Building Supplies come and upgrade my doors, windows and insulation to make a bigger impact on reducing my family’s energy use. In the three months since we changed out our doors, windows, and added insulation to our attic, we have seen a drastic drop in our SRP bill each month because we are using less kilowatts of energy to keep our home comfortable. Even at a time when there has been a rate increase for the summer months, our bills are actually lower then they were at the same time last year. The savings have been great, but knowing that we are doing our share to go green and teach our three children about being responsible also matters.
The doors & windows I had on my house in Ahwatukee were the originals put in 10 years ago by the tract builder. They were low-end, cheap doors & windows that if you touched them in the summer could feel the heat coming right through them. They are the type of windows that most people have on their homes, as I have learned that most builders cut corners on these items. Needless to say they did little in terms of keeping the heat out.
The insulation in my attic was also not adequate. Over the 10 years of my home’s existence the original insulation put in the attic had dwindled down to nothing. A free in-home estimate by R&K Building Supplies showed me how poorly insulated my attic had become. For a very reasonable price I had R&K come out and over a four hour span they pumped about 12 inches of fiberglass insulation throughout the attic giving it the proper coverage it needed.
The combination of new doors, windows and insulation has led to tremendous savings, less energy use and a good feeling of my family doing our share. I highly recommend R&K Building Supplies to anyone who wants to beautify their home and make it more energy efficient. From start to finish they do a tremendous job! So do what I did and make the call to R&K Building Supplies!
