Increase Energy Efficiency for WinterAnnually, Minnesota is known for having one of the toughest winters in the country. Heavy snowfall, brisk temperatures, freezing rain and even sleet are common weather conditions that occur throughout this season. It is common sense that keeping your body bundled up this time of year is very important, but many individuals fail to think about their home until those high energy bills show up in the mail. If your Minnesota home has not had recent maintenance or upgrades designed to increase the energy efficiency of your residence, Tollefson Bros Exteriors, Inc. is here to help!

Energy Trouble Spots Around Your Home

Keeping the air inside your home is the key to lowering those unwanted energy bills during the colder months of the year. Specifically, Tollefson Bros Exteriors, Inc., specializes in maintenance and upgrade services around the following parts of the home:

  • Windows – One of the greatest ways to make your home more energy efficient is through the windows. This is one of the most common trouble spots where the heat in your home can easily seep out of tiny gaps in your windows. Our staff, with over 25 years of service, specializes in Richlin Vinyl replacement windows that work especially well in cold winters like we see in Minnesota. Research has shown that by maintaining and replacing your windows, you can see a 25-40% reduction in your energy bills!
  • The Roof – The roof is the number one defense against mother nature. Whether you are in need of minor roof repair or if you need a full roof replacement, our roofing specialists can provide a full evaluation of your roof and help address any potential trouble spots. We offer a wide variety of roof styles and colors to choose from if replacement is needed, and we use some of the best roofing systems for the Minnesota region including Owens-Corning, GAF and CertainTeed Asphalt.
  • Insulation – If your home has poor insulation, you are literally just throwing away money during the winter. Count on our staff, a team you can trust, to evaluate the health of your home’s insulation. By investing in expanding blown-in fiberglass insulation for your attic, your energy bills may reduce by nearly 20%! The cost to heat and cool your home is only going to increase, so consider investing in elite level insulation to offset these costs.

Just because it is cold outside and winter weather is approaching in Minnesota doesn’t mean that home maintenance and upgrades have to be put on the back burner. In fact, now is the best time to consider upgrades and maintenance to your windows, roof and insulation.
