If you’re anything like the average homeowner, much of the money you spend on your energy bills will be due to your heating and cooling in Edison, NJ.

You don’t want the sunlight to heat up your home during the summer, and you don’t want your heat escaping throughout the winter. Consider planting a tree or setting up an awning outside of your house to block the sunlight from driving up the temperature in your house. Then, in the winter, sunlight can enter the home after the leaves have fallen off of your tree or you’ve taken down your awning. If you have a portable air conditioner, remember to set it up on the north side of your house for extra efficiency.
