It pays to invest in your home’s quality: The importance of energy efficiency in your home


When it comes to infrastructure, you want your home to withstand the test of time. But over the years, wear and tear, weathering, and warping happen! If left untreated, these issues can take a toll on the level of your home’s efficiency as well as your wallet through money lost via wasted energy! From insulation to installation, there’s an opportunity in every home to make changes to create a space that’s energy smart.

Implementing the tips below will not only make your home feel more comfortable, but can also lead to monetary savings and be able to take pride in the fact that you’ve made efforts to be more environmentally conscious! There’s nothing to lose except saying “farewell” to energy loss!

  • Resilience for years to come - Homes that implement efficiency measures can help translate to an improved quality of living, energy efficiency, and durability.
  • Think smart thermostat - Smart thermostat technology connected to your heating and cooling system can help with savings. Smart thermostats let you remotely control your home's temperature via a tablet, smartphone, or desktop. Using advanced technology, a smart thermostat conveniently controls and monitors energy use, optimizes comfort, and can help reduce energy costs in your home.
  • A clean filter matters - A clogged air filter can cause your system to work harder than it needs to- that means wasted energy and wasted spending. A fresh filter works to reduce draft and moisture and keep pollen and dust at bay for a healthier living environment.
  • Rid yourself of drafts and leaks-  Check your windows for any leaks that may compromise your heating efficiency. Insulate around windows and doors to prevent air leaks and keep warm air inside. Installing new, energy-efficient windows helps keep heat in with protective coatings and sturdy frames to keep cold air out when it otherwise would tend to seep in!
  • Savings - It’s a no-brainer that working to create a more energy-efficient home will use less energy during the winter season. What will you gain? Reduced costs mean lower bills and that’s savings worth celebrating!
