Considering Alternative Energy? Check Insulation First

Alternative energy sources have the potential to make big contributions to home comfort and overall savings, but only if your conditioned air stays inside your home where it belongs. A poorly insulated home leaks away valuable energy dollars whether you’re using new solar or old-school electric, so do all you can to improve your home’s structural efficiencies before taking on a new power technology. Heating and cooling equipment also impacts energy efficiency if it’s not in tip-top shape, so keep bi-annual system check-ups, filter changes and other maintenance chores at the top of seasonal to-do lists.
