Make Your Eichler More Energy Efficient

We have become a lot more energy and conservation aware since Joseph Eichler began building his homes. Eichlers were built during an era when cars were big, energy was cheap, and worrying about our carbon footprint was a thing of the future. Most Mid-Century homes, including Eichlers, weren’t stellar examples of energy efficiency and an Eichler home with clean windows and spot-free PV solar panels were unimaginable. Today, as Eichler homeowners are renovating their homes and bringing the Mid-Century aesthetic into the 21st Century, a major concern has become creating a comfort level inside that maintains environmental conscientiousness.

With that in mind, I want to take a minute to share a very timely article I found on the Eichler Network website. Dan Smith contacted two South Bay contractors who are experienced in in upgrading Mid-Century homes to create energy efficient homes that are comfortable inside and won’t break the heating and cooling budget. The article helps prioritize where to put your remodeling dollars when it comes to insulating your Eichler home. Rebate programs in California might make now the time to upgrade windows, reroof, and insulate your Eichler. To read the article in full and get tips on insulating your Eichler, go to House of Questions – “To upgrade our Eichler’s insulation, what is the smartest way to spend our money?” on the Eichler Network website.
