If you’re in an older home, or if it’s been a while since you’ve looked at the energy efficiency of your home, now is the time. With amazing new products on the market, as well as some amazing rebates from different levels of government, you’d be remiss to not become more energy efficient.
Your roof is doing a bulk of the work when it comes to handling whatever the seasons throw at your home. If you’ve noticed leaks or missing shingles, or if its’ been more than 20 years, it’s time to replace your roof. A new roof will help keep heat out in the summer, and the cold out in the winter, helping to cut down on your energy bills.
Another great way to keep the warmth and cold where you want it is with insulation. By adding, or upgrading insulation, you reduce the need for air conditioners and heaters, making your home more energy-efficient.
Over the years, large home appliances have become more and more efficient. If you’ve been using the same oven or refrigerator for some time, it might be worth considering a replacement for a newer more efficient model.
