Nov 28, 2012 No Comments by

Winter is here, and it’s time to start thinking about ways to increase the warmth of your home without increasing your heating spend. Fortunately, there are many cost-effective and tax beneficial ways that homeowners can stay toasty this wintertime.


When was the last time you checked your gutters? By clearing out leaves and other debris, you’ll prevent rain and snow from clogging. In winter, clogs turn to ice. Ice patches can adversely affect your heating systems.


In addition to maintaining your home’s exterior, it is important to properly insulate your interior pipes, attic, and basement. Though it is an investment, it will add value to your home. Moreover, insulating your home will reduce your energy needs lowering your monthly heating bill. Additionally, homeowners should be mindful of securing alternate heating solutions. Regular maintenance on your furnace, chimney, and fireplace will prevent problems in the months ahead and ensure their full functionality.


Adhering to energy efficiency is another way home owners can keep costs down while heating the interior of their property. By installing storm windows and other types of energy-saving heating systems into your home, you’ll not only save on monthly bills, you’ll also potentially qualify for tax credits at the end of the year.


If your strategy for staying warm during the cold winter months consists only of a big, bulky sweater and gallons of hot chocolate, you’re not maximizing the money-saving potential that winterizing your home can offer.
