Bigger Home Upgrades That Lead to Bigger Savings
While DIY changes help, there are larger upgrades that can significantly reduce heating costs. For many, these upgrades may seem out of reach financially, but that’s where CAC’s no-cost Maryland weatherization assistance programs can help.
- Upgrade Insulation: Proper insulation is vital for retaining heat, reducing the amount of energy required to maintain warmth.
- Air Sealing: Plugging leaks in your home can prevent cold air from entering and warm air from escaping. Your heating system will run less frequently, saving money.
- Heating System: If your heating system is old or not working properly, it’s likely wasting money. Newer or repaired systems are more efficient and can save a considerable amount on bills.
- Hot Water Heater: Upgrading or repairing your water heater can reduce energy costs substantially as it’s a significant energy consumer in most homes.
The best part of all is that with our Maryland weatherization assistance programs, you can make these significant upgrades without worrying about the cost. CAC’s weatherization assistance is designed to help income-qualified households make these essential upgrades at no expense.
