What We Do

Welcome to Central Maine Winterizing Services, we serve the greater Bangor area. Here you will find information and services for tightening up your home or camp for the long, cold Maine winters. It is not uncommon to see 30 below zero in central Maine. If you don't take a proactive approach to preparing for the season, you can count on paying through the nose for heating fuel costs. Whether you're heating with Oil, Propane, Wood, or pellets, if you don't prepare you will pay more each month and still feel a drafty cold air in your home.

It is a fact that sealing up cracks around your doors and windows helps you in your battle for warmth. Even if you have brand new windows that have double panes with argon gas in between, you should still install plastic over the windows. Instead of two layers of protection, you will have a third layer. I will explain this in more detail further down. If you're not using weather stripping around your exterior doors, you are losing money. If your attic space does not have insulation, you are giving money away. With the cost of heating fuel on the rise as always, why do you let the heat (a.k.a. money) squeeze through the cracks.

We can help you save money, feel warmer, and reduce your footprint on a carbon scale. Our services help the winter feel a little more cozy, and let's you rest assured that you did everything in your power to save as much as possible. We can schedule a yearly cycle to help you keep your heat inside throughout each upcoming winter, then come again in the spring to remove and clean up. We handle each job as an independent, As each home has it's own ways of losing heat. We can identify, solve, and repair all air leaks that we may encounter during the inspection.

Average savings

While the average American home can cost around $2,200/year to heat, here in Maine it costs closer to $3,000/year. This cost can be reduced up to 20% by properly insulating your home, and keeping your heat inside. That's a savings of nearly $600/year or $50.00/month.  In the central Maine economy that's equivalent to 3-4 hours of work per week out the window......literally!

You'll earn your money back before winter is half way over. $300.00 in savings average, and a cost of substantially less than that (less than one third), you're giving money away if you don't seal your home properly. You will also notice a difference in the comfort of your home. To keep those drafty floors at bay, you have to start at the sources. We will find and eliminate most air leaks for you.
