Stopping Energy Loss in your Home

Is energy loss in your home an issue for you? Most likely, there are months of the year when your energy bills are higher than you would like. For instance, during summertime the air conditioning is blasting, causing energy use to skyrocket. We can help! Read on to learn more about some effective solutions to stop energy loss in your home.

Windows Cause Energy Loss

Your windows may be causing up to 40% of the energy loss in your home. The outside air temperature greatly influences your interior air temperature which directly affects your comfort. In the summer, the sun quickly heats up the outside air which streams into your home causing discomfort to you and your family. Trying to control the temperatures in your home during these times may seem like a constant battle.

Creating Atmosphere

Creating a comfortable home atmosphere has to do with more than temperature control. Maybe you want to enjoy the outdoor scenery in the morning, but value privacy in the evening. Similarly, you may welcome the streaming morning light, but it may quickly become irritating glare by early afternoon. Controlling these elements will improve your family’s comfort and lifestyle. Whatever unique solutions your situation requires, the result will be a more energy efficient and comfortable home.

The Disharmony of Energy Loss

Energy loss is not only a financial issue – it is a lifestyle issue as well. When our interior spaces are not comfortable, disharmony may surface. With more family members home at the same time now more than ever, discomfort quickly leads to superficial arguments. Trivial conflicts may arise over the temperature setting on the thermostat, the inability to sleep soundly, or too much light entering a room creating glare on work surfaces.
