When times are tough, energy efficiency is more important than ever, and regardless of income level or financial status, nobody wants to throw money away through inefficiency. When it comes to expensive inefficiencies, home heating and cooling is one of the biggest problems. In an attempt to lower energy costs, homeowners plug drafts, add insulation, and use alternative methods of heating and cooling.
While these methods are sometimes effective, a major weak spot in each home’s air conditioning efficiency that is often overlooked is its windows. Low quality, thinly paned windows can cost a pretty penny over the years, due to their poor ability to insulate. Damaged windows with small air leaks can cost even more!
What can you do to save energy and keep your wallet fat (or at least your bank account not empty!)?
