Keep the Heat Where You Need it!
It’s a little known fact that the average home wastes as much as 10% of its home heating energy on easy-to-fix air leaks. We don’t want this to happen to you! With that in mind, please take a look at these simple DIY winterization tips, which can help keep your heated air inside the home where it belongs:
Remember to remove any window air conditioning units
- Caulk and weather-strip around doors and windows
- Cover your kitchen exhaust fan when not in use
- Install foam gaskets behind outlet and switch plates
- Check your attic hatch, plumbing vents, recessed lights and wiring holes for any additional air leaks, and apply a little bit of caulk to any holes ½’ or less
Looking for even more ways to save energy? Consider a heating system upgrade through the Upgrade & Save Pennsylvania rebate program. Through this program, you can earn up to $750 in rebates by simply upgrading your home heating equipment, and boosting your home’s heating efficiency.
