Leaky Windows Draining Your Savings | Palos Hills, Calumet City

Sometimes upgrading a furnace to a high efficiency system is not enough to see significant savings on your energy bills. When this happens, there is usually another energy draining problem in the home that is not being address. As a company that performs home energy audits, Four Seasons has found that many homes across Chicagoland are in desperate need of replacement windows because they are still relying on single-pane windows to keep out the cold.

Traffic, noisy neighbors, air conditioners, and lawn mowers can all create a lot of noise, and single pane windows will do little to stop these noises from disturbing the peace inside your home.

  • Install the Thermostat on an Interior Wall

Exterior walls may carry a lower or hotter temperature than interior walls based on the temperature outside. This temperature difference will affect the reading on the thermostat if the thermostat is installed on one of these walls. Choose an interior wall instead! (more…)
