Reducing Your Power Bills by Insulating Your Home
Increasing the insulation in your home can help reduce your power bills and save you money. But having a professional come to install insulation may cost more than you can afford. If you are searching for ways to lower your energy costs that won’t break the bank, we’ve got you covered. Here are three money-saving insulation ideas from an expert insulation contractor to help lower your energy bills.
Caulk Your Vents
You probably think your house is sealed off from the outside. But that may not be the case. There are lots of little places where air can leak, causing your energy bill to rise. One common place is around the vents in your laundry room and your bathroom. Go outside your house and take a look. You should be able to see if the gap where your vents exit is sealed or not. If it isn’t, don’t worry. It is an easy fix.
Insulate Your Patio Doors
Patios are often seasonal spaces. If you have a door to a patio you don’t use in winter, then you can seal up that door to help save on your heating costs. Now I’m not suggesting you do anything drastic like board up your door. All you have to do is buy some rigid foam board. A rigid foam board is a light, insulative material that you can find at the hardware store. It comes in a variety of thicknesses depending on how much insulation you want. Once you have your board, you can place it in your patio doorway. This will help keep the heat from seeping out your door.
Insulate Your Attic Stairs
Attic stairs? You may be thinking, I don’t have attic stairs. But chances are, somewhere in your home is a hole in your ceiling that leads up to your attic. And chances are it’s not insulated and it’s drafty. However, that can change with an easy fix. All you need to do is install an attic stair cover box.
