It’s the time of year to bundle up in wool socks and sweaters and drink hot cocoa. If you live in Michigan, then you are probably used to the freezing temperatures we deal with in the mitten state. The winter season can be bitterly cold and may increase your heating bills. There are a few ways you can save money and insulate your home. We are sharing these tips to help you stay warm and save money during the winter.
Seal Windows with Caulk
If you own an older home, your windows may not be properly sealed. IGN Group LLC recommends adding caulk to the casing surrounding your windows to prevent any cold air from seeping in.
Increase Insulation in Attic
Your attic is the number one place where cold air leaks into your home. About 25% of heat is lost through your roof. This can easily be fixed by increasing your insulation. You can also increase insulation in your walls to preserve heat better.
Let Sunlight Shine During the Day, and Close Your Curtains at Night
Sunlight works as a natural source of heat for your home. We recommend opening up curtains around your home to let in as much sunlight possible during the day. Once the sun goes down, prevent the heat from escaping by closing your curtains. Insulated curtains are the best option when it comes to this process.
Seal Air Leaks
Leaks in your home are the #1 way your home loses heat. It is recommended to have a professional inspect your home for leaks, and have them cover up those leaks with their materials.
