I hear horror stories of heating bills monthly being $400, $500 and up. Too often it accompanies the statement “Well I’ll just put in a heat pump”, quite often this is not the answer. The truth of the matter is the number one culprit behind heat loss is air transfer. Warm air that you paid good money to heat, floats out the home and is exchanged with cold air, which in turn needs to be heated, quite the vicious cycle. Sealing up areas of heat loss in a home can save you money and provide a comfortable environment for your family. Here are some common places that you can investigate in your own home; Attic hatches, exterior doors, ventilation connections, pot lighting, and older window frames. Put your hand next to them, does it feel cool? Heat loss is money out of your pocket, seal up those voids with weather strips, caulking, or spay foam to help your home.
