  • How to Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency on a Tight Budget

Home Energy EfficiencyThe energy efficiency of your home can have a significant impact on your quality of life. It’s not just about how comfortable and consistent the interior temperature is throughout your home. It’s also about those monthly energy bills that can easily creep upward when your home is not as energy efficient as you’d like to admit. While some of the most common solutions to improving your home’s energy efficiency include things like replacing your windows or installing solar panels, these aren’t always realistic or budget-friendly solutions. Fortunately, there are still things you can do to improve your home’s energy efficiency on a tight budget.

Adding Window Shades or Storm Panels

Another solution that can help prevent energy loss through your windows is to add exterior window treatments. Adding some shade to your windows with exterior blinds, awnings, or overhangs can help block out the sun’s rays during the hottest times of the day to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your interior environment. Putting in storm panels can also improve the energy efficiency of your existing windows without having to replace the windows entirely.

Adding Attic Insulation

In addition to windows being a major source of energy loss in homes, the attic is another area that’s prone to substantial energy loss. Ensuring your attic is properly insulated is a smart way to improve your home’s energy efficiency. And having new attic insulation installed is a more affordable home improvement project than window replacements and other more drastic changes. If your attic wasn’t adequately insulated before, you will likely see a reduced energy bill! Attic insulation is an economical solution that can enhance your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.

Get a Free Energy Audit

One of the best ways to understand your home’s current energy performance is to request an energy audit. This can help identify problem areas where you can focus your attention so that you can have the biggest impact on your home’s energy efficiency, no matter how tight a budget you’re working with.

At FOR Energy we offer free energy audits as well as more comprehensive energy audits for $99. You can rely on us to help you identify the biggest problem areas of your home and help you find solutions that will best address your needs and meet your budget requirements.

“We would highly recommend this company to anyone considering an install!”


We recently contracted with FOR Energy to install a solar system for our home. Sean was tremendous in explaining how the system worked and all the associated process for the install, which went without any problems and would be considered very "user friendly". We would highly recommend this company to anyone considering an install!
