 Best Energy Enhancements for the Buck…….

Energy_efficient_house

Upgrades that REALLY work…….

High utility bills from our unusually cold winter are causing many people to consider energy efficient upgrades. Some energy enhancements offer more bang for the buck. For example; Adding insulation, especially in the attic, is a low-cost way to reduce utility bills. However, replacing windows requires a huge upfront cost, which you probably won’t live long enough to earn back. Therefore, it’s good to know which upgrades offer the highest return before writing a huge check to your local contractor.

To see net-net savings — in your lifetime — select upgrades that reduce energy consumption by 5% and require modest initial investments. Energy improvements that meet this criteria include:

  • Seal and insulate duct work through unfinished and unheated areas, such as the attic, garage, and crawl spaces.
  • Add insulation to unfinished and unheated areas.
  • Install a programmable thermostat so you don’t overheat your house when you’re away or while you are asleep.
  • Seal air leaks around windows, doors, attic access, and recessed lights.
