Question:

What are some tips to help me save energy this winter?



Answer: 

Many times I have heard people say that they have plenty of insulation but their home is still cold or too expensive to heat in the winter.  Energy required for heating and cooling accounts for over half of your total energy bill and money that is spent on proper insulation will be returned in energy savings.  However, there is something that is often overlooked and should be done even before you add insulation.



Air leakage in a home results in energy inefficiency.  If you have an open window, cold air is going to come in and make the room difficult to heat.  It is relatively simple to check for penetrations coming into your home.  Anything that passes from the heated area of your home to the outside or unheated area needs to be checked.  Examples include TV cables, plumbing, and ductwork.  In the attic, sources of heat loss can include recessed lights and pull down stairs.  Spaces around windows, doors and outlets can be big sources of air infiltration.  Often, a few hours spent with weatherstrip, caulk and some expanding foam can result in a huge improvement in your comfort level and your energy bill.  Of course, use common sense and be safe.
