Although March is halfway over, it’s not all that warm quite yet. In fact, we probably have another couple weeks of fairly cold temperature as March gives way to April. Are your heating bills higher than you’re expecting for this time of year? If your home is losing heat, they probably are!
It’s possible that you may need:
- More insulation
- A new garage door
Both of these can contribute to home heat loss and overall low energy efficiency.
Where Do Homes Lose Heat?
There are many places a home can lose heat and lead to an increase in your energy bills. Common sources of air leaks and energy loss in homes include:
- Attic hatches
- Walls (both exterior walls and those between living spaces and garages)
- Floors above garages and ventilated crawl spaces
- Leaky ductwork
These are all good places to install insulation!
Additional sources of energy loss in homes include:
- Recessed lights
- Vents and fans
- Cable TV and phone lines
- And more
Start Saving Energy
Fortunately, saving money at home is pretty simple! You can start by installing more insulation and replacing your old garage door.
Installing insulation is another way to help reduce your energy bills and increase comfort levels in your home all year long. It’s generally recommended to insulate walls, attics, basements and crawl spaces. We install insulation in the Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio areas.
Garage Door Installation
A new garage door will be more energy-efficient than an old one that has doesn’t have as good weatherstripping. But the best choice is installing an insulated garage door. Garage doors with insulation—like Overhead Door’s Thermacore® collection—can help you save money on your energy bills and live more comfortably.
