Weatherizing your home or rental is easy and inexpensive.
You can save the most money on heating bills by sealing the cracks.
Caulk, commonly used around bathtubs, pipes, and plumbing fixtures, is also great for reducing drafts around leaky windows and doors and it’s available in safe, nontoxic varieties.
Drafts around windows can increase heating bills by up to 30 percent. Window shrink-wrap kits, or window insulation kits, come with sheets of plastic film and super-strength doubled-sided tape. It’s easy to use.
Cold air runs underneath doors and to prevent this draft use draft stoppers (draft dodgers and door snakes). Use them by closed doors or on window ledges to block winter drafts from entering a room. Additionally, they come in handy when sealing off garages, basements, attics and rooms you are not using.
