Please give me suggestions about how to improve this essay on energy efficiency. Houses need money and energy to keep them cool in summer and to heat them up in winter. This task looks at ways of reducing heat transfer in a house in order to minimise appliance running costs and energy bills. Also, obtaining an energy efficient house maintains a comfortable temperature and costs no more to build that a conventional home. Air leaks are a very important factor in an Energy-efficient house, blocking air leaks stops heat loss or gain. Sealing air leaks leads to increased house energy efficiency and lower energy costs. When constructing a house in Alice Spring, all sealing feature for air leaks were chosen to reduce winter heating requirements and to prevent hot, dry and dusty air from entering during summer. By choosing to sea all air leaks, it increased the star rate of the energy-efficient house. Even though the cost of the air leaks was expensive, $588, pays off in the long run. If air leaks were not blocked, the heat is transferred through the house by the process of radiation but by sealing all the air leaks, it will prevent the air from bypassing the insulation and result in a more energy-efficient house.
