As spring time comes around, pollen season begins, setting off allergies and exacerbating health problems like asthma. While you can't control the air quality outside, you can improve the quality of the air in your home and provide your family a safe haven to breathe easy and get relief from the yellow haze outside.
Rather than asking, "Should I spend the money or not?" ask yourself "How much more will I spend on utility costs?"
If you're finding that your home suddenly feels stuffy or clammy, or if common colds now seem like a chronic condition for your family members, it might be time to check the airflow in your home.
This month, make it your family's mission to search out the energy wasters in your home and take the necessary steps to improve your home's efficiency before the truly cold weather arrives, and you can reap the savings for the rest of the season.
There are some big myths out there about insulation, and they're holding homeowners back from realizing great energy savings and home efficiency improvements.
