Reducing the amount of air that leaks in an out of your home is one of the most inexpensive strategies you can perform, to help save you money on your utilities and feel more comfortable within the home. Caulking and sealing air gaps around light fixtures, electric outlets, ceiling registers, plumbing fixtures, and windows are just a few ways to reduce air infiltration into the home. In Most cases, the savings received from making these improvements will exceed the investment.
Windows affect the flow of heat in and out of your home, as well as the amount of natural light that enters a home, which influences how much electricity you use to keep your home comfortable. Poor quality and inefficient windows can create the feeling of draft due to the physics of changing air temperatures. Installing a good Low-E window with U-Factor ratings 0.30 or lower and Solar Heat Gain Coefficients (SHGC) 0.30 or lower will significantly reduce your utility costs. In addition, air tight windows will make your home much more comfortable.
