One of the best ways to lower heating costs is preparing your home for winter. This can be done in many ways, but one of the most effective ways is by replacing your windows. If you happen to have older windows chances, you feel a draft flowing through, and it’s making your house much colder than it should be.

The heat you are generating goes right out the window and is likely costing you hundreds of dollars each month. By replacing your windows with more energy efficient ones, you will be able to keep the heat inside your house, thus reducing your heating costs.

So as you prepare for winter and begin to think about ways to lower your heating costs, looking at replacing the windows in your home can be a great option. It is cost effective and can save you hundreds of dollars over the next few months, and the government usually offers a rebate to make your home more efficient!

AND once the leaves have fallen, but before the snow hits don’t forget to clean your gutters to eliminate back up and drainage problems.
