How to Save Money on Heating this Winter

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Heating your home in Worcester this winter doesn’t have to be a big hit on your wallet, there are some simple things you can do to save.

As the weather and leaves start to turn, more people are beginning to think about getting ready for the winter.
National Grid is suggesting a number of things that homeowners can do to keep energy costs down.

Take these measures now while the weather is pleasant instead of waiting for the cold to really arrive.

Weather stripping can be applied around your doors and windows as well as clear films that can go over big doorways or sliding glass doors.

There is also insulation for your pipes as well as an insulation blanket for your hot water tank.

One way to eliminate the loss of heat through the attic is to install fiberglass insulation.

National Grid also advises to change furnace filters every month.

There are a number of things you can do to keep the warm air inside your home during the cold weather months, from weather-stripping to insulation, also if you’ve got a gap or opening near a door or window, you can also spray in some foam right from a can.

For spaces under a door, door sweeps installed at the bottom of a door can keep the drafts out and the warm air in.

If your air conditioners are permanently installed in your windows, cover them up during the cold months.

National Grid also suggests lowering your thermostat to 65 during the day and lowering them more during the night.

Attic Insulation Protects Your Home and Pays for Itself

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 10, 2012

As summer winds down and the fall approaches, we can’t help but start thinking about the upcoming heating bills. As you know, heating and cooling is one of the largest expenses we have in our homes. If you are interested in energy conservation, consider updating, adding or replacing your attic insulation.

Attic insulation and ventilation is a critical part of heat gain and loss in your home; heat gain and loss results in large energy bills. Heat enters your home in the summer and leaves your home in the winter through your attic.

Proper attic insulation allows you heating and cooling system to work less, lowering heating and cooling bills. Making sure you have proper attic insulation is key in the winter to prevent heat loss.

While we are there, we’ll ensure that your attic ventilation is working properly. Through your duct work, it is important to prevent heat and moisture from being trapped. Damaging moisture rots wood and promotes the growth of mildew and molds.

Attic insulation and ventilation is a home improvement project that pays for itself in reduced energy bills and it protects your home at the same time.  Contact Custom Insulation today.
