Furnace Tips: How to Improve Your Basement’s Energy Efficiency

Lots of homeowners in the Orangeville, Shelburne, Collingwood and Owen sound areas and beyond store a lot of appliances, furnishing and keepsakes in their basements. Here’s what you can do to make this often overlooked space in your home more energy efficient:

• If you have an old fridge or freezer lurking in your basement, get rid of it
• Get a dehumidifier to reduce excess moisture, which could damage your home and belongings
• Install an Energy Star water heater
• Get an Energy Star HVAC system and have it maintained regularly
• Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible and don’t over-dry your clothes in the dryer
• Get your rim joists (where the basement wall comes into contact with the wood frame) inspected for leaks and get it sealed
