Save Money on your Home Heating Bills
Save Money on your Home Heating Bills

There’s an old adage that warns against sending, “money down the drain.”  House Studs wants to help you from sending money out leaky cracks in your home!


Home energy audits reveal a lot of culprits for lost energy…and money down the drain. One of the easiest issues to address are your power outlets. Most power outlets aren’t insulated; they have gaps behind the faceplates that allow heated or air-conditioned air to escape from your home.  There’s an old trick to see if your outlets are leading air: light a candle and carefully hold it in front of your outlets. If the flame flickers, you’ve got a draft. Consider installing insulated covers to help reduce your energy bills in winter and summer.
