IDT Energy understands that your money is hard-earned. For this reason, they offer the lowest possible prices for electric and gas services. While reducing your bills in these areas, they also want to help you to save money in your home overall. One problem in the home that might be costing you unnecessarily is cold air leaks. These often occur around windows, doors, electrical outlets, light fixtures and gaps in corners.
Such cold air leaks can cause rooms to feel drafty and can cause you to spend more heating the home than is necessary. Here are a few ways to deal with such air leaks. You can use air sealing to stop drafts. A contractor can help you to identify where your air leaks are originating and can help you to close these gaps.
Similarly, it’s a good idea to ask the heating and cooling contractor to check the ducts for air leaks and to look for a balanced airflow. Finally, if you have a fireplace, you should certainly close the damper when the fireplace is not in use.
