Designing and Remodeling a Home

Before you design a new home or remodel an existing one, you should consider investing in its energy efficiency. You’ll save energy and money in the long run. It’s also a good time to invest in a renewable energy system that will provide your home with electricity, water heating, or space heating and cooling.

If you’d like to design an energy-efficient home, no matter what type of design, you should use what’s called the whole-house systems approach.

If you’re remodeling a home, conduct an energy audit to help you determine what energy efficiency improvements should and can be made to your home.

Learn how to optimize energy efficiency with the following home designs and construction techniques:

  • Advanced House (Wall) Framing Techniques

    Reduce lumber use and waste—improving energy efficiency—in the construction of a traditional wood-framed house.

  • Earth-sheltered Homes

    Incorporate earth into their structure and design for durability and energy efficiency.

  • Log Homes

    Use wooden logs to provide structure and insulation.

  • Manufactured Homes

    Feature energy-efficient options for new homes and improvements for older homes.

  • Passive Solar Homes

    Take advantage of climatic conditions, especially the sun, for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.

  • Straw Bale Homes

    Use straw bales to provide all or part of their structure and insulation.

  • Zero Energy Homes

    Produce more energy than they use.

You should also explore your options for financing an energy-efficient home or improvements.

Before the Storm

Before the Storm

  • Make sure you’re covered – Insurance companies do not accept new applications or requests for increased coverage once a hurricane nears Florida.
  • Know what your policy covers – Flood and wind damage are often covered in separate policies. Decide if you need this protection and contact your agent for more information.
  • Make sure your coverage is adequate – You may have made recent home improvements or purchases. Consider increasing your coverage if your policy doesn’t cover the current value of your home and contents.
  • Keep policy documents safe – In addition to information on your agent, you should write down   the name of your insurance company, policy number, and a telephone number to report a claim.
  • Fortify your home – Inspect your roof, making sure you have roof anchors installed on your home. Replace your windows and doors that don’t pass the impact test, or cover them with shutters. A fortified home with the right doors, windows and shutters will save you money on your insurance premiums (link to discounts).
  • Secure your property and clear your yard of any debris, lawn furniture, tools or other objects that could turn into dangerous projectiles in high winds.

FEMA: During a Hurricane

 

If a hurricane is likely in your area, you should:

  • Listen to the radio or TV for information.
  • Secure your home, close storm shutters, and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
  • Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed.
  • Turn off propane tanks.· Avoid using the phone, except for serious emergencies.
  • Moor your boat if time permits.
  • Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purposes such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other large containers with water.

You should evacuate under the following conditions:

  • If you are directed by local authorities to do so. Be sure to follow their instructions.
  • If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure—such shelters are particularly hazardous during hurricanes no matter how well fastened to the ground.
  • If you live in a high-rise building—hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations.
  • If you live on the coast, on a floodplain, near a river, or on an inland waterway.
  • If you feel you are in danger.

If you are unable to evacuate, go to your safe room. If you do not have one, follow these guidelines:

  • Stay indoors during the hurricane and away from windows and glass doors.
  • Close all interior doors—secure and brace external doors.
  • Keep curtains and blinds closed. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm – winds will pick up again.
  • Take refuge in a small interior room, closet, or hallway on the lowest level.

Energy Savers: Attic Insulation

Attic Insulation 

Properly insulating and air sealing your attic will help reduce your energy bills. Attics are often one of the easiest places in a house to insulate, especially if you’d like to add insulation.

Before insulating or deciding whether to add insulation to your attic, first see our information about adding insulation to an existing house or selecting insulation for new home construction if you haven’t already.

Warning: if you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. Don’t disturb it. Only insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite insulation.

Attic Insulation Techniques

logo_pink_is_green Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. Although installation costs may vary, loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batt insulation. When installed properly, loose-fill insulation also usually provides better coverage.

Before installing any type of insulation in your attic, follow these steps:

  • Seal all attic-to-home air leaks. Most insulation does not stop airflow.

  • Duct exhaust fans to the outside. Use a tightly constructed box to cover fan housing on attic side. Seal around the duct where it exits the box. Seal the perimeter of the box to the drywall on attic side.

  • Cover openings—such as dropped ceilings, soffits, and bulkheads—into attic area with plywood and seal to the attic side of the ceiling.

  • Seal around chimney and framing with a high-temperature caulk or furnace cement.

            • At the tops of interior walls, use long-life caulk to seal the smaller gaps and holes. Use expanding foam or strips of rigid foam board insulation for the larger gaps.

FEMA: Recovering from Disaster

 

Recovering from a disaster is usually a gradual process. Safety is a primary issue, as are mental and physical well-being. If assistance is available, knowing how to access it makes the process faster and less stressful. This section offers some general advice on steps to take after disaster strikes in order to begin getting your home, your community, and your life back to normal.
