11561RE: [hreg] Links to energy incentives/rebates for remodeling?
- Mar 18, 2013
I’m considering pulling off sheetrock for an older rent house I own but to replace the original non-compliant wiring dating back to the ‘50s. It is a lot of work but insulation is definitely going to go in at the same time.
Consider upgrading, adding electrical outlets, fire breaks, window alarm wiring etc while you have access.
I also have been wondering if there is any use for recycling old sheetrock other than the landfill.
One of my clients removed the sheet rock and sprayed rigid urethane foam insulation between the studs until it was flush, trimmed it, and then hung new sheet rock
Did I mention it’s a lot of work….?
I would appreciate it if anyone can send me information or links on how to get energy rebates for remodeling in Houston. I have found a CenterPoint site.
Any advice on energy efficient remodeling would be helpful, especially priorities in spending.
One problem I am wrestling with is:
How to increase/maximize the R-value of insulation of a 4 inch stud wall on the South side of a old residence, without increasing the wall thickness.
