Energy bills make up around half of the monthly expenses in most households. Fortunately, with some easy measures, you can reduce your heating and cooling bills by as much as 30%. Here is how:
- Regular maintenance – your heating and cooling system works hard to maintain the temperature in your rooms stable and comfortable, so they deserve your attention and care or the attention of Denver air conditioning professionals in periods when they are out of use. Heating systems should be cleaned, inspected, maintained and repaired during the summer and you should do the same for your air conditioning system in fall or in spring;
- Insulate your home – having insulation of the right type and thickness on your walls as well as in your attic is the best way to reduce the amount of energy needed for cooling and heating your home. The investment into new insulation can be substantial, but reduced energy bills is only one of the benefits – suitable insulation improves the quality of the air inside your home and prevents the appearance of mold and mildew as well;
- Seal the areas around your doors and window – the thin cracks that develop around wall openings are a major cause for energy loss. Fortunately, they are easy to get rid of, all you need is some caulk.
