February can be a brutal month to get through. The holidays are over, Illinois and Indiana have experienced plenty of snow and harsh weather, and yet the cold continues to linger, and the days continue to be short and grey. For home and business owners, February can also mean continued high heating costs and energy expenses.
Ways to Upgrade Your Home or Business to Save More Energy
There are a lot of easy things that you can do to improve your home or business’ energy efficiency, as well as some more intensive projects you can consider taking on. Top energy efficient upgrades you can make right now include:
Weatherstripping – Weatherstripping your home or business’ windows and doors is one of the easiest and least expensive things that you can do that will have a dramatic effect on how much energy your home uses.
Changing your light bulbs – If you haven’t upgraded the bulbs in your lights yet, what are you waiting for? Making the switch to energy efficient lighting can save you a bundle every year.
Consider different entry doors – For businesses, upgrading to a more modern, more energy efficient entry door system could save you hundreds of dollars in costs over time. Automatic doors, particularly revolving doors, have shown to reduce drafts and save more.
Invest in energy-efficient windows. While replacing the windows in your home or business is certainly a more expensive upgrade than is something simple like putting in weatherstripping, if you can afford it, the cost may be well worth it. Not only will your home/business be more energy efficient, which saves money, but the value of your space will also increase. This may be an important consideration if you’re thinking about selling your home in the future.
