Oregon Energy Saver Tips
Top 3 Energy Savers in Oregon
1. Insulate Your Attic
Believe it or not your attic is one of the biggest culprits of wasted energy. Many times you aren’t able to see these gaps because they are covered up with insulation. But, if you have fiberglass insulation it isn’t strong enough to keep the air out. Think about glass and a newspaper. Which one of these materials allows light to easily pass through it? Glass right? Well, that’s exactly what fiberglass insulation is made from and easily lets air pass through. Cellulose is a type of insulation that is made from recycled newspapers and can be densely packed in areas so the cannot escape.
2. Upgrade Your Windows
The benefits to having quality windows are immense. Windows maintain and regulate the temperature in your home by keeping the heat out in the summer and the cold air out in the winter. It is important for your comfort to have well sealed, efficient and double paned windows installed in your home.
3. Insulate Can Lights
Insulate around recessed lighting. It’s hard to believe how much air flows through this type of lighting but it’s worth your time to insulate around these.
