Preparing Your Home for Winter, Merrimack, NH Family Takes Action

To save money all winter long, there are some steps that you can take to insulate your home including weather-stripping, installing a door sweep, sealing air leaks and sealing your furnace ducts. The key to improving your home’s efficiency is to seal in the warm air, while keeping the cold out.

Anticipating high heating bills this winter, a family in Merrimack, NH was looking for tips on how to make their home more energy efficient.

Sealing the Home to Keep the Valuable Heat Indoors

Windows and doors tend to be one of the biggest culprits for allowing warm air to escape and cold air to come into the home during the winter. This can be significantly reduced by weatherstripping around external doors and windows. You can also add a door sweep to stop drafts from entering through the exterior doors of the home.

The attic is another area where a fair amount of precious heat can be lost in the winter time. This can be reduced by adding insulation, sealing the area around electrical fixtures, pipes, fans and outlets. Another detriment to your home’s energy efficiency is the fireplace damper. Leaving this open when not in use, can cause the valuable warm air to escape through the chimney.

Sealing Furnace Ducts

A home’s heating ducts can waste between 20 and 30% of their heat through leaks. Some ducts that are hidden in the walls, ceilings and floors cannot be sealed. However, sealing those in the attic, basement and garage can make a big difference in your home’s energy efficiency.

After receiving these tips, the family in Merrimack is preparing their home to make it as energy efficient as possible for the upcoming winter.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!
