    Fortunately I just found out from the Shaker Heights housing inspector that everything passed inspection and that all of the violations have been successfully corrected. David did an excellent job in coordinating and assuring high-quality work on all of the many projects that were done here. We will definitely use Reilly Painting again in the future for other projects.

    Tips For Keeping The Home Warm

    Now that it’s getting colder, it’s time to start cranking up with heat. With this, you’re energy and heating bill is going to rise. Here are some tips for keeping your home warm without spending a fortune:

    1. Seal air leaks and insulate

    One of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to cut down on costs is to seal any air leaks that are in the home, Vargas said. The biggest leaks are often in the basement or crawl space.

    And savings can be significant: Add up all the leaks in the average American home, and the draft let into the home is the equivalent to leaving a window open all year long, she said. In fact, homeowners can shave off 10% of their annual energy bills just by air sealing their homes and adding insulation in areas such as attics and crawl spaces, Vargas said.

    While some homeowners may feel comfortable doing this project on their own, others might want to hire a professional to do the work, Vargas said. Professionals also might find leaks that homeowners wouldn’t find on their own, she added.
