As the weather turns cold and the rain starts to fall it is a great time to inspect your home for energy inefficiencies and take measures to protect yourself from high energy bills.
Small maintenance procedures like checking the weather stripping around doors and windows can ensure that your house stays comfortable. Also installing a programmable thermostat, insulating hot water pipes, and other weekend projects can help shield you from rising energy costs as the temperatures drop.
