Conserving on Your Heating Bill


  • Insulate walls, ceilings and floors as required. See R Values for recommended R values. Savings in fuel costs in a well insulated home over an uninsulated home will pay for the cost of proper insulation in a few years.

  • Install storm windows and storm doors. These items of good quality and properly installed are a major factor in fuel savings as the reduce both heat transmission and air leakage.
