Long-Term Winter Energy Savings Tips
Insulating and Sealing Air Leaks
- Add insulation in the attic (consult a licensed electrician if wiring does not meet current standards).
- Upgrade insulation levels to R-38 in the attic, R-19 in the walls and R-19 in the floor (if located over a crawl space or unconditioned space).
- Have cellulose blown into walls that are not insulated (consult a licensed electrician if wiring does not meet current standards).
Heating and Ventilation
- Use light-emitting diode (LED) light bulbs to save up to 80 percent in energy costs when compared to conventional bulbs.
