SAVE MONEY????!!!! HEATING TIPS!
IDEAS TO CUT YOUR HEATING COST!
1) HAVE YOUR HEATING SYSTEM SERVICED ANNUALLY
~SHORE POINT recommends having your heating system serviced right before the cold weather comes in. We normally start scheduling our Heat Start – ups around November.
Please call or contact us through this website via email, to schedule your Heat Start-Up.
(Don’t forget to ask about our ADVANTAGE CLUB MEMBERSHIP)
2) CHECK FOR DRAFTS
~ DO IT YOURSELF DRAFT TEST using an incense stick. Turn on ALL the exhaust fans in your home. Light your incense stick, hold stick by all closed doors and windows, also by all electrical outlets. If the smoke blows sideways you have a draft that must be dealt with. You may plug your drafts with weather stripping, caulk, or expandable foam.
3) CHECK YOUR INSULATION
~ SHORE POINT RECOMMENDS CHECKING THE THICKNESS OF YOUR INSULATION. In attic take a ruler, measure the thickness of your insulation. You should have 11″ of fiberglass or rock wiil insulation. If you have cellulose insulation, you will need to have 8″ of insulation. These measurements go for the hatch door as well as the floor.
4) CLEANING AND SEALING OF DUCTWORK
SHORE POINT recommends having duct work cleaned, only if, there are visible signs of dust, mold or vermin. If you do see reasons to have duct work cleaning done please call SHORE POINT we do have an outside company that we will contact and have your appointment set up for y ou. You may also have a professional such as SHORE POINT check your duct work, because 25 to 40 percent of conditioned air is lost through ducts that leak. SHORE POINT can seal any leaks with tape or mastic. There is also a newer technology called aerosealing. You may also contact SHORE POINT to set up an appointment with an outside company that we recommend for aerosealing.
