Save Energy This Summer

August 10, 2011  /  Economy  /  Marti Reeder

If your home is well-insulated, it should keep heat out during the summer and cold out in the winter. Before you replace your windows, there are some other quick fixes you can try to maximize your home’s efficiency:

  1. Inspect windows for gaps, cracks or air leaks.
  2. Caulk around window openings on the outside and around the window’s trim on the inside.
  3. Seal off air leaks with weather stripping.
  4. Install storm windows or apply heat-shrink film for an added layer of protection.

If these tips don’t solve your problem, it may be time to replace them. Install ENERGY STAR windows by 12/31/11 for a tax credit (see my July 20 blog post for more info.), as well as energy savings. At the same time, you’ll give your home an updated look, boosting that all-important curb appeal!
