Fill In The Money Pit Underneath Your Home

by

Is your home costing you a fortune? For many of us, the answer is yes. The problem is that we’re not usually sure what’s going wrong. It could be a variety of problems from the home setup to energy costs and struggles with maintenance. For instance, you might find that one of the reasons for the expensive cost is your home’s insulation. If your home has poor insulation, it’s going to cost a fortune to heat it and keep it warm through the winter months. That’s because all that heat will slip away, slowly but surely. Cold air will also flood in, and this means you have to put your thermostat at the highest setting to get anywhere close to being warm.

The answer, of course, would be to improve your home insulation. But how can you do this? Well, you can get new windows fitted for the property. With triple glazing, insulation will no longer be an issue. But this is quite expensive. Another possibility would be to purchase thicker, fuller curtain that looks fantastic and block the cold air escaping into the room. It’s just one of the options you can consider. But it will take the cost of the solution down from a few thousand to a couple hundred. Let’s look at some of the other issues that could be costing you a lot of money in the home and how to sort them out.
