Ways To Save

Doesn’t everyone need to save money? There are many things you can encourage your customers to do around their home to lower their energy costs. Here are some simple projects that you can recommend to get them on their way to having more money in their wallet.

Adding insulation is one of many ways to save. Knee wall attic access doors and attic stairs are often left un-insulated. Recommend to your customers that they insulate theirs. Another way to reduce heating and cooling bills is to make sure homeowners have adequate insulation in the attic. The attic is the easiest place to add insulation for a homeowner or contractor in most cases.

Let your customers know that insulating is a great start to helping reduce energy bills is not the only thing that can be done to stop heat loss and air infiltration. A drafty home is not only uncomfortable, but expensive as well. Ask yourself, does the home need weather stripping? Can you feel cold air coming in around doors and windows on a cold windy day? You may not have thought about it this way before, but if you have a ¼” gap at the bottom of a 3’ wide door, you have 9 square inches of open space. If you had a hole this size in an exterior wall, you would fix it right?

Check for places that need to be caulked. Look for gaps and holes around door and window frames, wall and roof vents, electrical boxes, plumbing fixtures and skylights. Look around outdoor faucets and where gas pipes and electrical lines enter the house. Check the joints where siding joins at corners and where it meets the roof and foundation or where it meets the fireplace chimney. Service Partners offers a wide selection of caulks to meet all of your needs.

Saving water will also save your customers money. Regular shower heads can be replaced with more efficient low-flow shower heads. They can also save by shortening the length of their showers and washing their clothes in cold water.

These are just a few things you can recommend to your customers to help them get started saving and reducing energy costs.
