Energy Efficiency Services

Whether you have high heating & cooling costs or you’re looking to solve the comfort issues in your home, The Fifth Fuel can help.

Whole-Home Insulation Solutions

Insulation is one of the most effective and affordable ways to improve energy efficiency in your home. Working like a down jacket, it creates a barrier that separates your living spaces from the outdoor elements to prevent heat transfer and energy loss. 

The Fifth Fuel offers several insulation services in DC, including:

Air Sealing for Maximum Protection

In order to maximize your home’s insulation benefits, you need to stop unwanted airflow in addition to heat transfer. This is why our team always recommends air sealing in tandem with insulation upgrades. 

By sealing gaps, cracks, and other areas of air leakage, air sealing creates an airtight barrier around your home that helps:

  • Strengthen your home structure
  • Prevent ice dams
  • Improve indoor air quality  
  • Reduce wear & tear on HVAC equipment
  • Lower heating & cooling costs

In-Depth Energy Audits

There’s no single solution that will work for every DC home, and the best way to identify exactly what yours needs is with an energy audit. This whole-home performance assessment allows our qualified technicians to find areas of inadequate insulation, air leakage, and more, so we can build a customized plan of action that delivers results.  

Commercial & Multifamily Services

The Fifth Fuel also offers energy efficiency services to businesses and multifamily properties in Washington DC. We’ve worked on a wide variety of commercial buildings in the area and can help you reduce operating costs and get serious about energy conservation with insulation, air sealing, and more.
