A lot goes into home heating and air conditioning. In fact, costs are always a worry to homeowners who regularly use their home heating system. For this reason, heating contractors recommend insulating the home.
Home insulation plays a key role in maintaining energy efficiency. Take a look around your property. Where does the sunlight hit most? Are there any open windows or holes? Your home might have the best central air system. Unfortunately, all the work it does can go to waste. Properly insulating the home can help with heat retention, shaving energy costs.
Even if some parts of your home are insulated, take another look. Situations could have changed. All the small air leaks in the home add up to significant energy loss.
Be sure to check for:
- Attic insulation
- Air duct insulation
- Weather-stripping of windows and doors
- Caulking of holes and open crevices
- Old windows
Making these changes can help your home naturally stay warmer longer.
