Summer was great, but nothing beats a New England fall season! The leaves are changing, pumpkin flavored everything, apple picking, and cooler weather is right around the corner. We gathered some helpful tips that you can begin using this fall that may help cut back on your energy usage.
- Heating system check-up. This fall season we suggest you get a heating system maintenance check. This helps determine if your system is up to snuff or if any repairs will be required to ensure the system is running efficiently.
- Goodbye air leaks. By sealing any air leaks around your home, you could save between 10%- 20% in energy usage especially when you seal leaks around your windows! So go buy some caulk today.
- Adjust your thermostat. Before going to bed, turn down your thermostat by 10 degrees and turn it back up in the morning. By making this change, you could save about 10% on your heating bill.
- Check the insulation around your home. Prepare for the cooler fall temperatures by checking your home’s insulation. Properly installed insulation will help reduce heating costs in and around your home. Which helps you cut back on your energy usage.
