Don’t Allow Warm Air to Escape
Managing the temperature of your home is not just about paying attention to the numbers on your thermostat. In fact, if that is all you are concerned with, you could end up wasting thousands of dollars a year. Sure, you can crank the air conditioning up or keep the furnace burning, but that is going to send your energy bill through the roof. Alternatively, you could think about purchasing a new heating or cooling unit, but that is going to be expensive. The best way to ease the burden on your home heating unit it is to trap warm air inside the home.
How do I Accomplish this?
The best way to do this is through insulation. Air loves to escape out through attics and windows. Make sure you attic is well insulated and consider purchasing heavy-duty double-pained windows. This is just a start. There are lots of ways for air to escape your home. If you are interested in being thorough, you should consider enlisting the aid of a heating/cool professional who will be able to come out and perform an energy audit on your home.
Call Parker & Sons for an energy audit and you too could be living in an envelope of happiness all year long.
