Winterize Your home

Winterizing Your Home Saves Money

We estimate, based on other clients’ experiences, who usually left their heat at 50* all winter, that winterizing your home (allowing the heat to be left off) will typically reduce annual fuel consumption expenses from $1000-3000.  That is a tremendous savings!  Winterizing is also good for the environment: offset your carbon footprint by eliminating the fuel used to heat your home over the winter months.

Should I winterize even If I live in my home during the winter months?

For those clients that want to continue to use their home over the winter months, we still recommend weatherization.  If you factor total fuel expense over the six months of winter that we experience in Northeastern California and come up with a break-even analysis comparing those costs to the costs of winterizing, most homeowners can come and go a total of 4 times and have spent the exact same to winterize as they would have to heat their home.  That equates to reducing the risk of freeze damage to ZERO at approximately the same expense as leaving heat on and assuming the huge liability of some type of freeze damage.  You can’t buy insurance like that anywhere else!

Winterizing your vacation home during the winter

For those clients that come up more frequently than 4 times a winter, we do have systems and procedures that can reduce the level of risk associated with leaving your home with heat on as protection from freezing weather. All of those services can be handled by Slusher Plumbing Heating Cooling Electric.

Services Include:

  • Periodic home inspections
  • Installation of a home temperature monitoring system via a WiFI thermostat
  • Installation of an automatic backup generator.

* Although, the methods have been proven effective, we CANNOT guarantee that your home will not suffer freeze related damage using these methods.
