How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient this Winter

Nov 29, 2018

Winter is here in Kansas City!

Mother Nature recently reminded us all that weather in Kansas and Missouri can change quickly. This winter, homeowners like you can not only be prepared for harsh conditions, but also save money on energy costs by making your home more energy efficient.

After you’ve cleaned your gutters, brought your hoses inside, and checked your furnace, it’s time to start thinking about ways to keep your home warm by being energy efficient not just this winter, but all year long.

At Continental Siding, we know that energy efficient homes stay warmer and have lower energy bills throughout the year. That’s why we’ve put together these six ways to help you save money. Take steps today toward a more energy efficient home this winter.

How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient this Winter:

  1. Have us replace the siding on your home with insulated seamless polymer siding. Our siding is like wrapping every square inch of your walls in a blanket.
  2. Have us install a high-tech, fiberglass insulated entry door. These doors seal better, are better insulated, and are maintenance free. We’re talking the beauty of wood without the maintenance. A properly trained, qualified installer will give you a perfect, snug fit that’s easy to operate.

  3. Have us install an energy efficient storm door to add another barrier between you and Old Man Winter. Storm doors are also another design element that complements your home’s curb appeal.
  4. The most overlooked door in your entire home is your garage doors. Well-insulated garage doors keep warm indoor air from leaking out of your garage. This reduces energy costs by decreasing your HVAC system’s workload.
  5. Have us replace those leaky, old windows with our custom fit, energy efficient windows professionally installed by our team of experts.
  6. Finally, take advantage of off-season pricing, special financing, and your choice of a free gift. Click or call now for details.

But how do you know if you’re losing energy through windows? Assess your windows with our checklist below.

Three Ways to Identify Problematic Windows:

  1. If the window is a single pane of glass, there’s no insulation.
  2. If you have two panes of glass, but you see a foggy haze, that means the seal is broken and the energy efficient gas has escaped.
  3. If there’s no weather stripping (or not enough) around all four sides of the operating sash (the part that moves), cold air is coming in your house.
