If your home is not yet winterized, then you had better get started since December is here and winter is on the way! A great place to start is by caulking and sealing windows and other common leaky areas where cold air can seep in.
There are of course many other ways that you can increase your home’s energy and heating efficiency. For example, you could installing storm doors and windows, or replace your old thermostat with a newer programmable one.
In addition to caulking and sealing drafty areas around your home, don’t forget to seal up any window air conditioners. There are slip-on barriers that you can purchase, or there’s also the plastic, scrap towel, and duct tape method.
