Door and Kewaunee homeowners spending too much on their heating bill this winter might find proper insulation to be the solution to their problems. Insufficient insulation in the home can result in both warm air escaping and cold air entering through walls and windows, forcing heaters to overwork and running up costs. Eli Phillips, owner of Alpha Through Omega Construction in Casco, said he does free estimates for those worried about potential issues within their home.
Phillips mentioned not all insulation problems require a contractor for a fix, although he would recommend at least calling one in for an estimate if the insulation problem is occurring within walls or windows. He said his company and other local contractors might be able to provide a temporary fix until a decision toward making the next step is made.
