Winter Tips: Part 1

Henges Insulation is helping you survive the winter! Here are some winter tips to help you save money during the cold weather.

Henges Insulation KC

Tip #1: Get An Energy Audit

KC home energy audit will help you determine how much energy your home is consuming and help you find the problem areas.

A home energy audit is your first step in making your home more efficient, safer and more comfortable. An energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, can help you find out how much energy your home uses and also evaluates the measures you should take to improve efficiency. Don’t forget, energy audits alone don’t save energy. You need to implement all the recommended improvements in order to save money! 

Tip #2: Set ceiling fans to the winter setting by making sure it rotates clockwise.

In the winter, your ceiling fans should rotate clockwise using a low speed to pull cool air up. This will create a gentle updraft that pushes warm air, which naturally rises to the ceiling, down along the walls and back to the floor.

Tip #3: Don’t forget about furnace maintenance

Furnace maintenance helps maintain your heating system’s energy efficiency. Regular maintenance can help make certain that your furnace operates at its top efficiency during winter, helping you save on your utilities.
