Saving money? Who doesn’t love that?
When it comes to your insurance, teaming up with a good agency that can shop the network for you to find tailored coverage at the best quote is the way to go. When it’s about heating and cooling home costs, there are self-improvements that you can do yourself before considering other options.
First off, start with your own inspection, focusing on various related deficiencies in your home.
Your Home Energy Checklist
- Check if there’s any air seeping out. Look out for openings or gaps on the baseboards, electric outlets, windows and doors, and even outer parts of the house where separate pieces should be tightly connected. Follow up with mending the leak spots with tightening, caulking or weather stripping.
- Make sure your home is adequately insulated. Inspect ceilings, walls, doors – especially attic doors that also need to be shut tightly to avoid unnecessary heat or cooling loss.
- Your furnace and air conditioning system need to have their ducts and piping properly insulated and filters changed every month or two.
- Replace outmoded light bulbs that suck out too much energy with energy efficient ones. Not only will they help you save money on your electric bills, you’ll find they will outlast the inefficient ones by many mega hours.
Home energy is one thing. Add that to properly maintaining your home so that you will not be faced with repair bills later on, as well as the discounts offered by many insurance companies for keeping your home less prone to damages and accidents - and the financial paybacks will give you a symbolic congratulatory clap on the back!
