This winter, there are many ways to keep your home and wallet warm.
Homeowners often overlook or don’t even think about insulation.
Insulation plays an important role in keeping your home comfortable and your energy bills low. Older homes may lack insulation due to deterioration or inadequate building standards. Save money by batch baking during the holidays. Bake a variety of sweet treats in one sitting to avoid reheating your oven. That’s a waste of energy and money. Cost-cutting techniques should be creative. Put a pie in the oven right after dinner to make use of the heat you’ve already generated. Nobody likes to be cold in their own home. On a cold winter day, it can be very tempting to keep turning up the heat. Keep your system from working overtime by putting on another layer of clothes or snuggling up under a cozy blanket instead. Do you have any areas of your home that are rarely used? Do you spend most of your weekdays at work? Consider installing a programmable thermostat if this is the case. With a high-tech thermostat, you can heat certain zones of your home (when paired with a zoning system) and leave the unused sections cooler. You can set your thermostat according to your schedule while away from home!
