Stay Warn This Winter in Champaign Urbana ans Save MoneyThe winter season is upon us in Champaign/Urbana, and temps are already expected to get down into the 30s and lower this week! What are some ways to keep your family warm and toasty all winter long?

If you winterize your home by following these simple tips, you can lower your energy costs this winter and stay warm. Just following a few of these tips can make a difference in how warm your home can be this winter. And most of these tips cost little or no money.

  • Clean Your Gutters to make sure that water flows freely and prevents icicles and ice dam from forming.
  • Install an Energy Monitor to discover where and how your home uses the most energy.
  • Use a Window Insulation Kit to add an additional buffer against cold air. Insulation film can keep up to 70% of heat from leaking out of the windows.

  • Install Storm Doors and Windows for added energy efficiency.
  • Change Furnace Filters to increase airflow and keep your family healthy all season.
  • Clean and Adjust Your Heating System to help lower your energy costs and keep it working properly.
  • Upgrade to an Efficient Furnace that will reduce your heating costs for many years to come and increase your home's value.
  • Adjust Your Thermostat anytime you leave the house and do not need to use as much heat.
  • Insulate Your Pipes to cut back on hot water costs and avoid burst pipes.
  • Add Insulation between walls, on the basement ceiling, and the attic floor to help heat remain in your home.
