Fine Living Network, Smart Tips with green energy expert Joe Harberg. Joe Harberg: No matter what the season preventing air leakage is key to saving energy. Close the fireplace damper. If you don’t, it will leak air and make your HPAC system work harder. Install weatherstripping in crack windows, a crack of one-eight of an inch around the door or window is equivalent to a whole size of the baseball in your wall. Illuminating cracks can save up to 10% on your annual energy bill. Replace single pane windows with double or triple pane windows. There is an expense upfront but they will more than pay for themselves overtime. Plus when you purchase replacement windows with an energy store rating you can receive a tax credit. All homes leak air, finding and fixing these leaks is key to maintaining efficiency in your home. For more, go to fineliving.com/smarttips.
