The days are getting shorter...and cooler. Pretty soon we’ll all be cranking up our heating systems. Were your heating bills through the roof last year? There are ways to cut down on heating costs that don’t involve wearing mittens and mufflers around the house. Schedule a home energy audit. Many utility companies offer energy audits for free or at a reasonable rate. The auditor will identify places where you’re house is losing heat and suggest ways to prevent the heat loss.
