When temperatures go down, utility bills go up. The Home Depot’s local experts have quick tips and easy projects to reduce energy costs and protect homes before winter, including:
- Protect the exterior: Fall is a great time to prepare your home for colder temperatures and precipitation with weather-resistant paints and treatments.
- Automate: Install a home automation system that enables mobile control of home energy use.
- Insulate: Maximize the efficiency of insulation, water heaters and pipes.
- Weather proof: Use insulation, weather stripping, caulks and sealants to protect from moisture and boost energy savings by “resealing the envelope.”
