Just because there’s a bite in the air doesn’t mean there has to be one taken out of your wallet. Here are three small changes to your home can keep you from overspending on utilities all season long:
1) Inspect and repair your insulation. Heat rises, which means all of that warm air that keeps you comfortable eventually makes its way into the attic. A properly insulated attic could save you money.
2) Keep cold air out. If past winters have found you routinely turning up the heat, you have cracks and gaps that are letting cold air in. Fixing these is inexpensive, and this helps with the cost of heating.
3) Inspect your heating system. Homeowners often fail to have their heating systems inspected, which results in higher heating bills thanks to dirty heating ducts and old filters. Once these items are cleaned and replaced, you can reap results almost immediately.
