LOCAL REALTOR ADVANCES HOME ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND WINS FIRST PLACE IN BETTER HOMES & GARDENS WITH HELP FROM ILLINOIS ENERGY WINDOWS & SIDING.
In April, 2008, local Realtor Laura Reedy Stukel and her family took on a major remodeling project. They gutted their 1966 Elmhurst home, looking for every opportunity to make it more energy efficient. With the help of Illinois Energy Windows & Siding, the work is complete. Now that hard work is paying off in the shape of significantly reduced utility bills as well as some opportunities Stukel never imagined. The Stukel’s renovation project was named the green improvements winner in this year’s Better Homes and Gardens Magazine’s Home Improvement Challenge. Her project is featured in the “Living Green” section of the September issue which hits newsstands in late August. The article explains that her entry was selected over bigger projects such as geothermal heating and cooling or solar panel installation because of her focus on the cost-effectiveness of planned projects, and the desire to create a home “that offers energy efficiency, better (indoor) air quality and long-lasting style and function.” So far, the Stukels have found that their highest monthly heating bill after the remodel was lower than the average bill for the whole previous year, including the cooling months, thanks the new windows and siding from Illinois Energy Windows & Siding.
Laura Reedy Stukel is not only real estate agent, but a a certified Eco-Broker in the state of Illinois. With her background and desire for the most energy efficient and eco-friendly products, she chose Illinois Energy Windows and Siding to complete the exterior renovation of her house. The Stukels were very impressed with the build quality, and energy efficiency of Worthington Windows and Cedar Ridge Insulated Siding. They chose "Rye" colored Cedar Ridge Siding in Triple 6" and Shakes profiles and white-trimmed Worthington Windows in double-hung windows and casement window styles. Illinois Energy Windows and Siding provided the materials and installation for the project.
