If you are like most homeowners, you are always looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but you will also see the cost savings on your energy bill each month. While there are often small steps you can take to improve energy efficiency, there are three big areas of your home that can have a huge impact on energy.
- Air Sealing – Air can leak from many different places in your home, including your windows and doors, without your knowledge. If you’ve always wondered where that draft was coming from, a blower door test can help determine the culprit. If you are experiencing energy efficiency issues, a good place to start is with air sealing up all of the leaks in your home.
- Attics – Attics are just for storage, right? Truthfully, your attic can play a big part in the temperature regulation and energy efficiency of your home. Not only does it trap warm and cool air, but it can also determine whether your HVAC system is running efficiently. Proper insulation plays a big role in ensuring your attic is working its best.
- Insulation – Did you know that your insulation can pack down over time and become less effective? Insulation can not only help with noise reduction and reduced energy costs, but it can also help to regulate temperature and ensure that you achieve the best home comfort levels.
