- Improve Your Windows
Old and inefficient windows leak conditioned air. Switch out your window screens for storm windows—if you have them—before the frigid temps kick in. This swap will save you money on energy costs, protect your window from the elements, and eliminate drafts throughout fall and winter.
- Upgrade Your Insulation
Keep your home comfortable and your energy bills in line by upgrading your attic insulation. Attics are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to winter energy loss, so prep yours for winter by upgrading your insulation now.
- Service Your Heating System
Your HVAC system works hard to keep your home comfortable. Your HVAC system will use fuel more efficiently, last longer, and have fewer problems if properly serviced. Be sure it’s in top shape – check the pilot light, vacuum excess dust, and change the filter. Servicing your system now will help make it through any extreme temperatures.
- Seal Windows and Doors
Air sealing around windows and doors helps prevent conditioned air from escaping. Caulking and sealing these openings is one of the least expensive maintenance jobs you can do.
- Reverse Your Ceiling Fan
This is so easy – and so many homeowners forget to do this! Changing the direction of your ceiling fan to create an upward draft redistributes warm air from the ceiling back down into your living area. Before you do this, dust the blades.
These few steps can help your energy bills and make your home more comfortable. Ready go get started? We can help. Call today for a free insulation estimate.
