If your home is more than ten years old, chances are it is losing a lot of energy and, as a result, so is your pocketbook. Start fresh this New Year by saving money on your heating bills and plugging those unnecessary energy leaks in your home.
Currently our homes use too much energy, and as residents, we are responsible for a portion of the greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change. Since all energy consumption leads to some kind of environmental impact, you can help to reduce your contribution to the problem by simply plugging leaks throughout your home.
Hidden cracks and improper insulation in your home can amount to as much heat loss as having a window open all year round. At Century 21 Millennium we encourage homeowners to properly insulate their homes so they can save on energy bills. With a retrofitted home, plan to save up to $700 per year with your home improvements.
Did you know? It is estimated (according to Natural Resources Canada) that improvements of one house can reduce yearly carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 2.89 tonnes.
