Trying to make your home more energy-efficient? These are the areas that need the most attention.
Heating and Cooling
– A professional contractor will be able to detect where leaks are forming in your home. They will add extra insulation if necessary, install new air-tight windows and doors, and ensure there are no holes in your roof or siding.
-A homeowner can save money by making sure their toilets are running optimally. Many homeowners do not realize their toilet is using more water than necessary. Or, they are not concerned by a continuously running toilet.
-In order to make your home more energy-efficient, making it air-tight is the way to go. However, being air-tight can also introduce the risk of closing in toxins. A professional energy contractor will recommend any homeowner to opt for more natural products, like recycled “green” insulation.
-Incandescent light bulbs are energy guzzlers. Replace any old incandescent bulbs with CFLs or LEDs for significant savings.
