Oftentimes it can happen that heat would escape your home and you might not even notice it. In such cases, it’s a good idea to follow a few basic tips on what to look for and how to spot areas where there’s a greater chance for heat to escape, if you don’t want to end up with a hefty gas bill next month:
- Start by looking through your attic. Check to see if the corners feel colder and also aim to find out if you have enough attic insulation for the area you live in. Depending on how cold it gets, the amount of attic insulation you own might not be enough, and you may have to add more. Have a HVAC Denver CO company out to inspect your heating system and ventilation in the attic.
- Check your doors and windows, and see if you can spot any areas where cold air might be coming through. If that’s the case, then you might want to consider buying a new window (or set of windows) and a durable metal door with an excellent seal.
- Double check areas located on the inner side of walls that are more exposed to cold and strong winds, especially if you have windows or doors on that side. Depending on how your home was built, you might need to fortify those areas either with added insulation layers or a more resilient and energy-efficient upgrade for your door or windows.
