The temperature outside isn’t anything us warm-blooded Houstonians can’t handle, but we all know the weather here can be fickle and change in the blink of an eye. If and when we experience another bone-chilling cold snap, you don’t want to hole up inside only to feel cold drafts sneaking in through your doors and windows. That’s a sure sign that you’re wasting money! And, of course, you want to call T&Z to send a professional, experienced handyman to take care of it.
One way to take care of the draftiness issue is to have your handyman go ahead and install new doors and windows in your home. If cold air drafts from outside are able to get in, it will cost much more to heat and cool the space. You will be able to tell if a window or door is letting a draft in just by standing close by and feeling the difference in temperature. You may think you don’t want to spend money replacing all the doors and windows, but the money you will save in the long run in heating and cooling costs makes it totally worth getting the job done. Your T&Z handyman will also be able to tell you for sure whether or not your draft problem is being caused by your windows and/or doors.
Weatherstripping is another solution to getting rid of the draftiness in your home. Even a minuscule gap beneath your front door can kill you when it comes time to pay the electricity bill. Have your handyman install the right size rubber strip at the bottom of your doors to prevent heat or cool air from escaping or getting inside.
When it comes to your electricity bills there is so much that you can do to help you save money. The main thing would be to make sure that you have the right size rubber strip at the bottom of the door, as mentioned above. However, you should also make sure that you turn off the lights every time you leave a room, you don’t want to be wasting electricity. If you would like to save even more money on your bills, then have you considered switching providers? Sometimes you might save money when you use a new provider. If you think that you are being charged too much when it comes to your energy bills with your current provider, then after comparing the prices of providers, it would make sense to read some reviews on each one.
Obviously, changing providers won’t half your bill straight away, you need to make sure that you aren’t wasting energy (such as heating up a house that doesn’t have proper insulation). In the long run, it would be better to hire a professional who can help insulate your home better for you.
