Ways to cut winter energy bills

We are about mid-way through winter, and although we at D. W. Howard Realty in Ridgeway ON have been blessed with a mild winter for the most part,  we are always trying to find ways to be more “green” as well as save money on your heating bills.

Updating drafty old windows and doors can bring a huge pay off with lower energy bills, and would bring the biggest return on investment which you will see in your heating and cooling bills.

New windows & doors also improves your home by adding enormous curb appeal to buyers, helping your  home sell faster and for more money. Click here for more tips on preparing your house for sale. If you stay in your home, an added bonus is lower maintenance. New windows feature low maintenance cladding, and easier cleaning with tilt features allowing you to clean them from inside your house.

Having your furnace and fireplace serviced is another great way to ensure your energy bills are as low as you can get them.  Replacing a clunky old furnace to a new, energy-efficient one can more than pay for itself over the years, and will make your house more appealing to buyers if you do decide to sell.
