Where Do Homes Lose Heat?

Winter isn’t over quite yet—we still have some cold weeks ahead of us. Is your home comfortable? Is it losing heat and causing your energy bills to rise? It might be if it:

  • Isn’t properly insulated
  • Has old, drafty windows
  • Doesn’t have an energy-efficient garage door

All three of these factors can affect the overall energy efficiency of your home!

Heat Loss in a Home

There are many places a home can lose heat and lead to an increase in your energy bills. Common sources of air leaks and energy loss in homes include:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Attic hatches
  • Walls (both exterior walls and those between living spaces and garages
  • Ceilings
  • Floors above garages and ventilated crawl spaces
  • Leaky ductwork

These are all good places to install home insulation.

Other common places of energy loss are:

  • Vents and fans
  • Fireplace dampers
  • Recessed lighting
  • Electrical outlets
  • Cable TV and phone lines

What You Can Do

Besides installing insulation and air sealing your home, there are other ways to maximize energy efficiency—for example, replacing an old garage door or replacing old windows and front or patio doors.

Garage Doors

If your garage door is old or experiencing problems, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency by installing a new insulated garage door. These doors are not only energy-efficient but they also tend to be quiet in operation and can better protect the contents inside your garage door from inclement weather and extreme temperatures we see here in the Indianapolis area.

We offer a variety of garage doors with insulation, but Thermacore® doors are some of the most energy-efficient ones you can have installed!

Windows & Doors

Old, drafty windows and doors can be a significant source of energy loss in your home. We offer attractive, energy-efficient:

  • Vinyl windows
  • Front doors
  • Patio doors
  • Security storm doors
