Expert tips for heating and insulation

Aside from the cost to homeowners, heating is the second highest source of greenhouse gases from the average household. Insulation and heating are therefore extremely important concerns. In most cases it is not the type of heating that matters, but how well the home retains its heat.

By following a few simple guidelines, you will not only protect the structural integrity of your home but may save up to several hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs. These are savings that can be repeated year after year without additional material costs. It takes just a few hours' work and some inexpensive materials to create an energy-efficient home.
