Although it feels like winter may never end, spring is right around the corner! With springtime comes remodeling and renovation projects around the home. Here are some good spring projects that you may not have thought of that can also improve your home’s energy efficiency!
Schedule a home energy audit- If you are looking for a way to save money on your utility bills this year, an energy audit is a great place to start.

Check for water or mold damage- When spring finally arrives, one of the last things homeowners think to take a look at is their attic and crawl spaces. However, these are the areas within the home that are most likely to be affected by water damage after winter. Wherever there’s moisture, there could possibly be mold, making it crucial to inspect these areas in the spring. Properly insulating and air sealing your home can prevent future water and mold damage.
Insulation- Although most people don’t think about it until it’s either really hot or really cold, spring is actually the perfect time for an insulation upgrade! Insulating your home will help you save money on air conditioning costs in the summer. This means your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to cool your home, which can extend it’s life. Insulation will also help to keep pollen, dust, and other springtime allergens outside, which can be a huge benefit for those with allergies!
Install or upgrade weather-stripping- Weather-stripping the windows and doors around your home is a simple and effective way to save money on your utility bills year round. It will help keep drafts out and warm air in during the winter. In spring and summer, the weather-stripping will help keep the cool air inside. Weather-stripping should be applied to clean, dry surfaces when temperatures are above 20 degrees Fahrenheit, making spring the perfect time to install this easy upgrade!
