St. Charles, IL, February 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- It is during these winter months that many homeowners realize the rising cost of heating a home. However, energy experts such as Dr. Energy Saver, are helping local homeowners identify and solve the sources of energy deficiency and high energy costs.
Scott Stolzenburg, owner of Dr. Energy Saver® Fox Valley says that, "Increased prices for energy to heat and cool our homes are not going down any time soon. Matter of fact, we should look for this cost to continue to go up."
The energy efficient contractors at Dr. Energy Saver Fox Valley are experts at retrofitting homes with energy saving solutions. "We are certified in discovering and repairing the biggest energy and comfort problems in homes," said Stolzenburg.
The contractors at Dr. Energy Saver Fox Valley teach homeowners how air moves throughout their homes and how leaky homes cost "bushels of cash."
Stolzenburg says, "We find most homeowners are unhappy about the high cost of fuel But it's the energy that is lost or wasted that hurts the most. Imagine paying $4.00 a gallon at the gas pump and not knowing you have a hole in your tank or an engine that is not efficient… Ouch! Our homes were built 10, 20, or even 50 years ago and they just don't perform like they could. They weren't built with the need for energy efficiency."
After the contractors provide an energy audit on the home they can decide which energy saving options will help the most like air sealing, adding insulation, upgrading windows and more. Even something as simple as swapping light bulbs can make a difference. There are various rebates for energy saving upgrades for homeowners in Illinois. Dr. Energy Saver is your resource for this and more.
