Your Energy Bill is Gradually Getting More Expensive
Review the past few years’ worth of energy bills. How do their costs compare with one another? Are the costs gradually rising? How do your costs compare to say your neighbour? Have you already tried to cut down the cost of your energy bill but to no avail? Heating is a large contributor to energy consumption in the home. If you have faulty or old windows they could be contributing to increased heating costs. The technology in today’s windows can help to significantly reduce your heating and cooling costs.
