You can maximize savings on energy bills while protecting your home and staying safe. Here are a few tips to save money on your heating.
You want to keep your family warm this winter. Any cracks in the foundation, walls or crawlspace allow warm air to leak out. Improper insulation leads to higher energy bills. The proper insulation throughout your home is necessary to ensure you maximize your energy usage. Take these steps to maximize insulation and save money.
Basements don’t ventilate into the home so they are easy to block off from the rest of the house. Crawlspaces connect to the home. Your home’s vents and floorboards can allow cold air into the home. Basements that join to a crawlspace and exposed floorboards need proper ventilation as well.
Benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include:
Your chimney is the front line of defense when it comes to cold air. Heating your home is useful, but sealing the cold out of a chimney is the most crucial part of the insulation. Take these steps to make sure you have an effective and safe chimney.
Checking your home for foundation problems is recommended for home stability, energy bills, and preventing polluted air from mildew and moisture rot.
