Conservation Tips

Here’s some handy information that can help you conserve energy and save money. Some of these things are really basic and don’t cost a dime! Others may require some expert assistance.

Adding Insulation
Insulating ceilings, attics and walls will save a bundle. It’s an inexpensive way to save a lot of money fast. How much insulation do you need? It’s best to ask an expert, but in our experience… as much as you can fit.

Installing New Roofing and Siding
New siding itself isn’t really a big energy saver but what’s underneath is. New siding often is installed over a wind barrier (such as Tyvek) and often with a layer of dense foam insulation. This combination is great for sealing out drafts and adding an extra layer of insulation where you need it most.

Replacing old Windows and Doors
Old windows and doors are a common cause of significant heat loss. Old-fashion, non-thermal-pane windows can rob you of 20% of your heat! Poor weather stripping also results in cold drafts that blow right through cracks in you home. How significant is heat loss? It could be 15% or more!

Some Easy Things You Can Do:
• Feel for air leaks around windows, doors and electrical outlets and get rid of them with weather stripping & caulk
• Seal cracks in your home’s foundation
• Replace broken window glass
• Seal off your attic circulating fan with polyethylene and tape
• Keep closet doors closed
• Remove window air conditioners or tightly cover them
• Use storm windows and doors
• Close fireplace flue when not in use
• Keep attached garage doors closed
