4 Parts of Your Home That Are Losing Money – Part 3
Are you losing a growing amount of money to your energy bills and don’t know why? It could be that you’re losing your money the same way you’re losing your cool/warm air. Energy consumption increases when your heating and cooling system overworks to compensate for loss. The good news is, Tiger Services is here to help keep that money in your wallet.
Here is the third part of our series on the four parts of your home that affect your energy conservation, and how to keep them from costing you more in the long run:
Roughly 90% of homes in the US are under-insulated according to the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association. This means that 90% of family homes are losing more energy than they should be. In addition to making American families uncomfortable, this results in higher energy bills.
Chances are, your San Antonio home is one of these energy wasters. Your energy bills year round are higher than necessary due to lack of proper insulation. Insulation not only keeps warm air in your home during the winter, it also keeps cool air in your home in the summer.
Damaged or missing insulation allows air to escape from your home and costs you money. What can you do to keep air in your home and money in your wallet? Check your insulation in these common problem areas and replace it if necessary:
- The attic may be number one for energy loss. Did you know that 40% of savings comes from insulating the attic?
- The walls and other architecture of your home need proper insulation to prevent energy loss.
- Insulation around your ductwork keeps the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter by insulating the ducts that circulate your air throughout the home.
