There is still time to cut back on your energy bill this season by winterizing your home! Here are 4 tips from the experts at WMGB Home Improvement to help you save energy and discomfort this winter.
- Instal Storm Windows and Doors According to goodhousekeeping.com, changing out old windows and doors with new Energy Star-Certified models can increase energy efficiency by 45%. It may seem like a pain to go through the installation process, but it is well worth it!
- Put Up Some Plastic
If you can’t afford new windows and doors right now, another option is plastic! For just a few dollars, pick up a window insulation kit at any local hardware store. Adding this barrier against drafts can give a boost to your home’s ability to hold heat.
- Use Caulking and Weatherstripping
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, even the smallest leaks in your home’s windows can drain energy efficiency by 5-30% a year. Sealing these gaps with caulk and weatherstripping can be a simple fix to this problem. For more information on how to do this contact the experts at WMGB!
