3 Winter Home Improvement Projects to Lower Utility Costs

Here at Superior Windowland, we do more than just windows. We offer a variety of home improvement services that not only improve the look of your house, but also save you money. Below are three winter home improvement projects available from Superior Windowland that will help lower utility costs:

1. Add insulation

Extra insulation throughout your house can prevent heat from escaping this winter. “If your house was insulated more than 20 years ago, an added layer in the attic always helps,” Todd Recknagel, CEO of AM Conservation Group, told US News. You can also add insulation to your crawl space, basement and garage. Superior Windowland offers spray foam insulation, which can help you save up to 40 percent on energy costs.

2. Install south-facing windows

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends taking advantage of the sun's heat to lower utility costs. If you already have south-facing windows, keep the curtains open during the day; the sunlight will naturally heat your home. If not, contact Superior Windowland. We can help you select the perfect window type for the job!

3. Replace your doors

Replacing old doors with energy-efficient models can help reduce energy costs this winter, advises the Environmental Protection Agency. We know you will be pleased with Superior Windowland's variety and superior installation for your new doors. Our brands include Therma-Tru and Interstate.

Don't get stuck spending more than you have to this winter! Heating your home shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg.
