Saving Energy and Conserving Heat in the Wintertime for Homes and Business
Speak With A Window And Door Professional In Lake County Today.
Whether you own a home or a business, knowing how to reduce your heating costs during the wintertime and save money is smart. Not only will getting your heating use in control help to keep your wallet padded, but it also makes you a more energy-conscious individual.
In Indiana and Illinois, temperatures can drop below freezing during the winter months, leading most of us to crank the heat. Here are some ways to conserve energy and heat in the wintertime —
- Apply Weatherstripping
Weatherstripping is critical for homes and businesses in South Cook and Lake Counties. For grocery stores, restaurants, and other commercial businesses, the use of weatherstripping can save a significant amount of money on lost heat and utility costs. Weatherstripping should be applied around all doors, and can be used to seal windows as well. At Preferred Window & Door, our weatherstripping experts can handle your home or business’s weatherstripping needs.
- Home and Business Improvements
Some minor renovations and repairs to your home and business can also help to save you money during the wintertime. Some improvements to consider include:
- Plugging holes in exterior walls;
- Eliminating drafts around electrical boxes/outlets;
- Applying window film;
- Upgrading to energy-efficient windows; and
- Replacing dated doors.
All of these improvements are easy and straightforward, and the larger projects – like replacing windows or doors – will not only save you money in the wintertime, but will help you conserve and be more comfortable in the summertime, too.
