Ready to Save on Energy Bills? Five Tips for Fall.

Any time is a good time to save money on energy bills! If you dread cool weather, then fall is a great time to make home energy improvements. Here are some projects to get a jump on before cool temps arrive:

  1. Check Your Heating System.
    Your HVAC system will work more efficiently and have a longer life if it’s regularly serviced. Having your system checked can also help prevent a system break down during winter.
  2. Upgrade Your Insulation.
    The majority of heat loss in a home occurs up, not out. As your home naturally breathes, conditioned air is drawn up through the house an out the roof/attic. Adding insulation to your attic is a cost-effective way to save money on energy bills.
  3. Inspect Your Gutters.
    Water can cause huge damage to a home! It’s a great time to make sure your gutters are fully functioning and properly draining water away from your home. While you’re at it, consider adding gutter leaf protection so next year you won’t have the messy job of cleaning your gutters.
  4. Air Seal.
    Air sealing penetration points around your home helps prevent conditioned air from escaping. Penetration points can be found around outlets, vents, ducts, chimneys and more. Keeping conditioned air inside your home keeps your home comfortable and reduces wear and tear on your HVAC system.
  5. Reverse Your Ceiling Fan.
    Easy to do – and often overlooked! Changing the direction of your ceiling fan creates an upward draft and redistributes warm air. Helpful hint: dust your fan blades before reversing directions!
