No matter where you live in the Central New York area – Utica, Rome, Ithaca and all points in between – you know that in the cold of winter and during the dog days of summer, your energy bills soar. One thing we can depend on, wherever we might live in the Central New York region, changing, extreme weather is a part of life here. Unfortunately, this type of weather can cause our furnaces to run harder during the chilly months, and our air conditioners to crank all night long during those hot spells we often see in July and August. What can you do if your energy bills are outrageous? Consider a home energy audit from Standard Insulating Co.
