Ask the Expert, December 2011: The Most Cost-Efficient Method to Heat Your Home

Q: What is the most efficient/cost-effective method of heating a home in Westchester?

A: “It’s more of a personal choice than a cut-and-dry answer,” says John Gaccione, acting director of the Consumer Protection Department for Westchester County. “Anyone can decrease costs by, weatherizing their home and consulting with a professional, who can perform an energy audit. All of the major energy providers offer tips and resources for saving. It comes down to ‘what am I going to get for my money?’” The U.S. Department of Energy calculates heating estimates at hes.lbl.gov/consumer.
