Over the past couple weeks we have been discussing Winterizing your home, in preparation for what is about to come. However, today it is in the low 60's and feels like summer.
Throughout our discussions the goal has been to make suggestions that are quick, easy, cheap, and yet make a significant impact. Sure there are a lot of things you can do that will help but the benefit does not warrant the expense. Lately the media is full of great ideas how to improve your home for winter. The problem is that many of the suggestions are apt to cost you a lot and you will see an insignificant benefit.
Also, just because we suggest something doesn't mean that we are 100% correct. We offer suggestions and tips but at the end of the day it is you the homeowner that must make the decision about what to do and what to not do.
Energy conservation is a huge topic with a lot of varying opinions. We have had several comments where people either agree or disagree with our thoughts. Honestly, I think that is fantastic! What is happening is a conversation is underway and attempts are being made to improve homes.
Whether you choose to start in the attic and work down or in the basement and work up, the important thing is to start a process that will help with energy consumption.
PLEASE, keep your comments and thoughts coming.
Enjoy a beautiful day, who knows what's around the corner.
