Q: How can I save on my heating bills?
A: An easy, cost effective way to save on winter heating bills in your home is to simply turn down the thermostat. You can save up to 3% for every degree you turn down your thermostat. Gaps in window and doorframes can allow cold air to seep in and warm air to leak out of your house. Sealing up any exposed space with rubber weather stripping should suffice for small gaps.

Q: Is my home ready for the hot weather?
A: Insulation is important for your home, regardless of the season. You don’t want the extreme outside temperatures to be leaking into your home and causing inefficiencies with your air conditioner (or heater in winter). Proper insulation will keep the cool air in and the hot air out. If your air conditioner is working harder than normal, you could end up with broken AC and a home that isn’t prepared to keep the hot temperatures out.

Q: What should I consider before installing skylights?
A: Think about the amount of light that you’d like to enter through the skylight as certain angles/directions will brighten up the room more than others. Think about what size you’d like because small skylights may not let in much light, and they’ll rarely be noticed. If you’re going to invest in skylights, bigger is better in terms of brightening the room and making a statement.
