3 Ways to save Energy This Winter

The fall season is the best time of the year to prepare your home for the upcoming winter months.  Surprisingly, there are a number of ways that you can maintain a comfortable temperature in your home this winter without turning up the heat, and The Daily Green offers a few of these winterization tips below:

  • Block unwanted drafts of cool air from entering your home by making your owndraft snake and placing it at the bottom of your door. Upgrading to a high quality vinyl or fiberglass replacement door is the most effective way to stop this type of energy loss.
  • Add extra insulation to your home, and give special attention to your attic floor and basement ceiling.  Currently, the federal government will reimburse homeowners 30% of the insulation cost up to $1500.  Learn more about the insulation services offered by Bordner by visiting our website.
  • You will save between 1 and 3% on your heating bill for every degree that you lower your thermostat, and a programmable thermostat can make this task an easier one to manage.
