New online tool helps homeowners decrease energy loss, or 'Heat Bleed'
In these cold Minnesota winters, it’s important to know all your options when it comes to energy and heating savings. The Energy Response Corps has taken the initiative to create an online tool to evaluate how much energy your home is losing due to Heat Bleed. Heat Bleed, for those who don’t know, is the the loss of energy in homes caused by things such as outdated HVAC systems, old appliances, and non-energy efficient windows and doors.
The online tool, named Plug, helps you visualize how much energy is being lost by your home. Plus uses six factors to determine the amount of energy your home is using:
- Your address
- When your home was built
- How your home is heated
- How much it costs to heat your home in the winter
- How much it costs to cool your home in the summer
