Re-New C.L.E.A.N. Homes
Welcome to Re-New C.L.E.A.N. Homes, where we restore homes to the way they OUGHT to have been built. Perhaps you want to make your own home more energy-efficient or you’d like to buy a home and have the energy-efficient improvements made prior to moving your family in. You might be an investor who buys homes and flips or holds them for an investment.
We can help you in each of these scenarios because we know how to design the energy efficiency into most common home improvements. You might be surprised how making certain choices can make your home more efficient when replacing your roofing shingles… or painting the exterior AND interior of your home! We offer our signature services through the W.I.S.H.E.S. program: specific home improvements designed to drastically reduce your home’s energy consumption needs.

Replacing your old, inefficient windows with C.L.E.A.N. vinyl replacement windows is one of the easiest ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency & beautify your home. Most existing windows waste 3-5 times the energy of our newer, more efficient vinyl replacement windows that also block outside noise.
Replacing the siding on your home is one of the fastest ways to update the look of your home! During the process, we will replace the fiberglass batts in your walls with spray foam insulation. Insulation boards nailed to the exterior of your home won't stop airflow through your walls… only spray foam insulation keeps your expensive air in your home.
The average home uses 8-12% of its total energy for lighting. Switching to ultra-efficient LED lighting can eliminate 6-9% of your home's energy usage right away… and most of the savings will pay for the LED lighting within 1-2 years. LED light bulbs also last 25,000 to 50,000 hours AND contain NO mercury!
Most homes in America have insulation in the attic laying on the floor of the attic. Insulating the attic floor creates the “hot box syndrome” where the Summer heat penetrates the roof and accumulates in the attic faster than it can be ventilated… temperatures can easily rise over 130F!

Did you know that a 13SEER A/C unit uses 46% more energy than a 19SEER unit? An older 10SEER unit uses 90% more energy than a 19SEER unit! Maryland requires a 13SEER minimum for new construction homes; a 19SEER unit would save over 30% in energy usage and typically only costs about 20% more than a 13SEER unit.
Installing a solar energy system is the best way to pay for the electricity that your home requires. In fact, when your system pays for itself, you’ll never have to pay again for the electricity your system produces… for many many decades! Your solar energy system could supply over 100% of your home’s energy needs!
