Winter is coming! The sun may have warmed your home for the last few months, but as the thermometer turns south, you’ll be turning your attention to the thermostat. Fall is the perfect time to consider your home’s energy efficiency and to make any upgrades for a warmer winter.
Maybe you’ve wanted to make these home improvements for a while, but are feeling a bit apprehensive at the hypothetical price tag. Don’t fret! We at Trademark want to help ease your concerns and give you the financial flexibility to achieve even your most practical dreams.
Let’s take a look at some of the most effective energy upgrades you can make in your home to help you break free from heating bills and save money in the long term:
- Replace your old furnace with a high-efficiency model.
- Upgrade or replace old, leaky windows.
- Insulate your walls, attic, and basement.
- Check the efficiency of your hot water heater and system.
