4 Tips To Save On Your Home Energy Bills
Save money with residential services from Storm Exteriors
Colorado has some crazy weather, right? You may think it’s normal to have expensive energy bills when you’re accommodating for frigid winters and searing hot summers, but it’s possible you’re overspending due to exterior damages. Read this post from Storm Exteriors to learn how to save money on your home energy bills.
Assess Your Home’s Current Exterior
You’d be surprised how much your energy bills depend on your home’s exterior elements. Roof damage and broken siding can lead to insulation issues, as well as leaving an opening for hot air to escape or enter your home. You should have your home’s entire exterior inspected, including windows and gutters, for potential repairs or replacements done by local experts. Routine inspections and maintenance will ensure that your home’s exterior is in good condition, and hopefully prevent any costly damages later on.
Properly Insulate Your Windows and Doors
It’s no surprise that windows and doors play a significant role in regulating temperature. Wasted heat or cool air can cause your energy bills to skyrocket. It’s easy to assume this is an HVAC issue, but it’s possible your windows need to be repaired. A pro tip to check for improper insulation is to place a candle next to the window and watch for the flame to flicker from air drafts. Additionally, if your windows are difficult to open or close due to misalignment, it’s time to contact Storm Exteriors for a replacement.
Take Care Of Repairs ASAP
Not tending to needed repairs as soon as possible will not only raise your energy bills, but also the overall cost of repairs (or more likely replacements) down the road. It’s less expensive to take care of minor repairs and issues than it is to wait for significant damage to ensue. Don’t wait for bigger problems to arise – take care of repairs as soon as you notice them. Chances are, they’ve been there longer than you realize and only a professional will be able to fully assess the extent of the damage.
