Living in Minnesota has so many benefits. Winter white Christmas and warm summers make for the perfect combination of year round weather. While this climate may be conducive to your lifestyle, it may not be easy on the wallet. Homeowners all across Minnesota are struggling to pay their energy bills, no matter what season we are in! If you are ready to do something about these staggering prices, it’s time to contact Tollefson Bros. Exteriors. We offer a free and thorough inspection of your home to see how we can help lower your energy costs and improve efficiency of your home. The two most common ways to save money on your bills is installing adequate attic insulation and replacing old, leaky windows.
If you own a home that was built in the 1990s or prior to that, your home is likely to be filled with old, wooden windows. Not only are wooden windows high maintenance with cleaning and painting, they are also incredibly leaky. By replacing your old windows with our high quality Richlin vinyl windows, you have the potential of saving 25-40% on your heating and cooling bills every year! Vinyl windows are maintenance-free and add higher insulation values than wooden windows! At Tollefson Bros. Exteriors, we use the best windows on the market, with warm edge technology that makes them even better than our competitor’s insulated glass!
Think about a helium balloon. A very thick, durable balloon will trap the helium and hold that air in as long as possible, leaving you with a beautifully flying balloon for days. Now, picture a scrawny, cheap balloon that has leaks and thin surfaces. It only makes sense that the helium will escape faster, leaking all of the air out of the balloon, causing it to plummet to the ground. This is the exact same thing that happens with your air conditioning or heater when it flows around your home. If you don’t have quality insulation, especially in the attic, your air will leak, and your energy bills will skyrocket! Just by adding fiberglass insulation to your attic alone, you can save around 20% on your energy bills! Tollefson Bros. Exteriors has the experience and training to install insulation in your attic that also keeps proper ventilation in your home.
If you are looking to lower you Minnesota energy bills, the best solution is figuring out ways to better insulate your home. The best way to do this is by calling Tollefson Bros. Exteriors! We can give helpful advice on how to improve on the energy efficiency of your home today! For more information, call us at 952-881-2218.
