Residents seek new ways to preserve heat and save money

Rockville, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2019 -- Homeowners never want to feel like their hard-earned money is going to waste. Yet this is exactly how people feel when their homes are drafty and uncomfortable. Despite tendencies to blame the furnace, heaters aren't always the culprit.

Today, energy conservation is a priority in home construction. But what about homes built years ago? These homes retain less heat and are more likely to feel chilly in the winter, even with a fully functioning heater. To prevent overworking the heater and needing heating repair service in Montgomery County, MD, homeowners can make their homes more energy efficient. But first, it's important to know where the heat escapes and why.

There are many areas of the home that lose heat. Some of the most common include the roof, floors, walls, windows and doors. Oftentimes, there are gaps in the home that residents might not even know about. For instance, the point where the dryer vent connects to the external wall or where ceiling fans attach to the ceiling. These are all areas that need to be examined to calculate energy loss.

Insulating the attic and the floors are common ways to reduce heat loss. Such improvements should be completed by trained professionals to maximize their effectiveness.

This year, Vito Services is partnering with Edge Energy to provide home energy assessments. These assessments will tell homeowners exactly how their home is wasting energy and offer energy-saving recommendations. Following these recommendations can make customers eligible for local energy rebates.
