- Invest in New Exterior Doors
- Watch Your Energy Use
Many people have no idea that old, ill-installed, outdated windows are one of the biggest causes of energy loss in the average home. In fact, the U.S. Department estimates that 40% of all the heating and cooling costs for people in the United States can be attributed to their windows. When you choose windows from Progressive Insulation & Windows, you can trust that you will get energy-efficient windows expertly installed and with proper insulation.
Most people do not consider replacing their appliances until they deem it “necessary.” Unfortunately, what most people mean by necessary is that their appliances are no longer working. However, they do not always realize that appliances are one of the biggest energy consumers in the home. You can save on your utility bills by replacing old, outdated appliances with newer upgrades. Why wait to replace them until they’re broken when you could have a better, more energy-efficient model today.
The doors into your home are constantly being opened and closed, and every time they are, they allow air to go from outside to inside and vice versa – but that is the least of it. What you might not notice that even if the doors are kept closed most of the day, if they have drafts or are otherwise poorly insulated, they can constantly be leaking treated air. Choose an entry door with a polyurethane foam core to get the maximum energy efficiency.
You can replace all your appliances, get new windows, install new doors, and still not save much at all if you are not always taking steps to watch your daily energy usage. For example, do you leave your TV on all day? Instead, you could set it to “sleep” after not being used for a certain amount of time. There are dozens of ways you can reduce your energy use without making a big difference in your enjoyment of your home.
