As a homeowner and/or business owner, one has several costs to think about and any way to save money on some of these costs may go a long way. So, it can be a useful idea for homeowners and business owners to reduce utility bills by making easy, low-cost home or business improvements.
One area to focus on while thinking of ways to reduce home utility costs are home improvements that will lower cooling and heating costs. In fact, heating and cooling actually account for more than half of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes according to Energy.gov.
An efficient option when looking to lower cooling and heating costs is installing impact windows and doors that will keep the air inside your home from escaping.
