The Common Sense Guide to Heating Your Home

Discover proven inexpensive tools and quick techniques to save money and reduce costs on heat expenses during winter months.

Are you going to freeze this winter, or spend hundreds of dollars staying warm and cozy inside? What if you could stay warm and enjoy the winter while actually saving money. Wouldn’t that be nice?

In any given year, homeowners spend more money on heating their home during the winter (or cooling during the summer in warm clients) than on any other energy expenditure. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, investing in energy-efficient appliances can result in cost savings equivalent to thousands of dollars every year!

This book is for all homeowners interested in learning what they can do to improve the heat efficiency of their home – without spending thousands of dollars. You don’t have to hire a professional to winter proof your home, though you may want to hire a professional inspector at some point to assess what areas of your home need improvement. (For example, you may want to hire someone to check your furnace to make sure it is working efficiently).

This guide is suitable for anyone that wants to lower their heating costs, whether you are a handyman or someone that is not-so-handy when it comes to home improvements. Following even a few of the tips and techniques in this guide may result in hundreds, even thousands of dollars in energy savings over time. Many of the tips provide instant results.
