Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) October 2, 2006
Due to the high cost of crude oil, home heating costs this winter are sure to take a healthy bite out of the monthly budget. However, members of AP9 AtHomeRewards, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can take advantage of dependable methods to ward off the expected increases in their utility bills.
AP9 AtHomeRewards recognizes that the winter months are just around the corner and much of the United States will be experiencing frigid weather — sub-freezing temperatures, significant snowfall and bone-chilling winds that invade the Northeast and much of the Midwest every year. With heating costs expected to be elevated, AP9 At Home Rewards offers encouraging news: Increases in heating system efficiencies can lead to a decrease in heating bills, especially for AP9 At Home Rewards members.
AP9 AtHomeRewards members have access to savings on their home improvement projects by logging on to their members-only website at DealPass.com. There they can save 20% on $25 gift cards for major home centers, department stores and other national retailers. Once their gift cards arrive in the mail, AP9 AtHomeRewards members can use them to pay for insulation, vacuums and other home improvement needs.
AP9 At Home Rewards encourages homeowners to spend an afternoon completing these simple projects, which can shore up your heating system and lower your monthly charges:
-- Cover all exits. Insulating the attic, stairways, basement and garage is one of the most effective ways to keep hot air from escaping.
-- Check for leaks. Many homes have “cold zones,” areas that are significantly cooler than the rest of the home. Find the source of this cold air, then seal and insulate the leaky ducts, windows, door jambs or other openings.
-- Trim the hedges. Shrubs planted near the home can block airflow to heat pumps and air conditioners. Pruning them back will help ensure a clean flow.
-- Dust off the heaters. Vacuuming air vents, radiators and baseboard heaters will remove dust and other debris that can lower heating efficiency.
