The cost of heating your home in winter is like the weather here in New England: Everybody talks about it but nobody does anything about it.
While almost every homeowner complains about high heating costs, do you know just how “high” is high? According to the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development, the typical homeowner in the state spends $600-$740 per month to heat their home, or about $3,600-$4,440 during a six month heating season. And if the winter starts early or lasts longer, it can add another $1,000 or more to the bill!
You do not have to continue breaking the bank in order to keep your home comfortable during the harsh New England winter. There are affordable steps you can take that can significantly reduce energy use in your home. And using less energy means spending less on energy.
Many of the changes you can make are just what you would expect: more attic insulation, turn down the thermostat, insulate exterior walls. But the one home improvement you can make that impacts energy costs the most is replacing your old windows with new, energy-efficient models.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that almost one-third of a home’s energy is lost through inefficient windows and doors. If you have old windows in your home, the energy you may be losing is like keeping a window wide open all winter long!
New windows with advanced features like “low-e” glass and insulated frames, that are custom sized to fit snugly into your home, will greatly reduce the flow of warm air out of your home, while keeping the cold air out. Your furnace will kick on less often, and you’ll pay less for oil or gas every month. Simple.
