Get the Most Out of Your Energy Smart Jagoe Home

What can you do to make your home more energy efficient? Building a new Energy Smart Jagoe Home is your first step to saving money and reducing your green footprint. Here are 10 simple ways to make the most out of your Energy Smart home and score Low-Cost Savings:

  1. Lower your Thermostat: When you are away from your home, make sure that you drop the temperature 3-5 degrees. This will ultimately reduce your monthly utility bill because you are using less energy. According to Energy.gov, lowering your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees during the work day will save 5% to 15% every year.
  2. Make the Most of Your Low-E Windows: You brand new home’s windows are already sealed from air leaks. Low-E glass Sun Windows are installed in every Jagoe Home to keep the heat inside in the winter, and block heat from getting inside in the summer with the use of Argon gas, use of non-metal spacer, “virgin vinyl” and four-corner welding. Close your blinds in the summer, and open them in the winter to let the sunshine in and get the most out of your new Sun Windows!
  3. Turn Off Unnecessary Water: According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average homeowner can save about $170 a year with small changes to their water usage. Be conscious of running water while brushing your teeth or shaving. Also, bathing typically uses 75 gallons of water compared to a shower that uses about 17.2 gallons on average. You also should avoid running half-loads of laundry in your washer. A full load means more clothes get washed at once, which in turn conserves water and money.
  4. Don’t Wash Your Clothes in Hot Water:  If possible, wash your clothes in cold or warm water.
  5. Buy Energy Star Products: Jagoe Homes are all built with Energy Star products, such as refrigerators, range ovens, washers and air conditioners, that all meet energy efficient specifications set by the EPA. Energy Star qualified appliances use 10-50% less energy than standard appliances and help reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
  6. Keep Up With Your Filters: Clean or replace all filters in your home regularly. Dirty filters make your system work harder and run longer than necessary.
  7. Limit Space Heater Use: Although electric and gas space heaters keep your feet nice and toasty in cooler weather, they aren’t the most efficient way to heat your home. Many space heaters use 1,500 watts of energy to run and are considered to be a costly way to drain your energy bill.
  8. Unplug Unused Chargers: Cell phone and battery chargers that are plugged in but not in use are often referred to as energy vampires. According to Energy.gov, the average charger consumes 0.26 watts of energy when not in use and 2.24 watts when connected to your phone. Alone, one charger won’t make much impact, but collectively energy vampires can be responsible for 10% of your energy bill. So, unplug your chargers when not in use.
  9. Use LED Bulbs: In 2014, manufacturers stopped producing 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent light bulbs. Halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent lamps and light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs offer longer lasting light and are more energy efficient than your old incandescent bulbs. Since the average home uses 40 bulbs, switching over to greener bulbs is a great way to save on your electrical bill.
  10. Turn Off the Lights: Lighting accounts for about 12% of a typical residential utility bill.  Make sure to turn them off if they aren’t in use.
Did you know…

The lower a home scores on RESNET’S HERS (Home Energy Rating) Index, the more energy efficient it is. A standard new home that’s built to meet the current Energy Conservation Code will score a HERS Index of 100. New Jagoe homes score an average of 64, making them at least 36 percent more efficient than a standard new home and at least 66 percent more efficient than a used home.

Prepare Your Energy Smart Home for the Winter Months.

How to Build a Backyard Fire Pit

How to Build a Backyard Fire Pit – Get Ready for Fall!

Your backyard is probably one of your favorite places to spend the summer. Whether your time is spent in your pool, grilling out with neighbors or enjoying a glass of wine, watching the sunset from your patio, the days of summer will certainly be missed.

However, the coming of the Fall season doesn’t mean you have to abandon the comfort of your backyard! As the temperatures cool, this is the perfect time for you to do some yard maintenance, and if you’re feeling particularly crafty, a backyard fire pit is the perfect project for you!

What you’ll need:
  • A backyardbackyard fire pit
  • Tape Measure
  • Level
  • Tamper (masher)
  • Steel Rake
  • Shovel
  • Sand
  • Cast Concrete Wall Stones
  • Cap Stones

Disclaimer: Before  you begin building your backyard fire pit, check the building codes in your area to get the proper specs and regulations. Choose a location that is at least 10 feet away from your home, and away from any low-hanging trees or other structures. Also take precautions when digging holes so that you do not hit any utility lines.

Steps to building your fire pit:
  1. Clear away any grass that may be growing in the location of your fire pit.
  2. Lay out your Cap Stones in a circle in the spot that you selected.
  3. After you have your pit roughed out, dig approximately 12 inches or 1 foot into the ground to create a pit, equal to the diameter of the interior circle that is made by your Cap Stones (approximately 36 – 44 inches, depending on how many stones you use).
  4. Pour sand into the bottom of the hole and tamp (mash) the sand so that it is level.
  5. Make sure that the sand is level.
  6. Begin to lay your Wall Stones around the perimeter of the pit. Continue stacking the stones so that they are 12 inches or 1 foot above the surrounding ground.
  7. Pour a layer of sand into the ring of stones so that it covers the first layer, approximately 4 inches deep. Tamp the sand until it is level.
If you are not the crafty type, you can easily purchase a fire pit! Many fire pits can cost up to $1,000, but there are also plenty of budget friendly options:

Hammered Copper Fire Pit backyard fire pit

Traditional Stone Look

Sleek Iron Disk

Sphere Pit

Tabletop Fireplace
