Capture your heat!

Alright, it’s certainly not getting warmer out there [at least not for a couple more months!] ¬†More tips to help you save energy used for heating your home:

  • Use¬†window shrink film kits to cover your window frames with a heavy-duty clear plastic sheet to help reduce infiltration of the cold air from outside
  • Install tight fitting, insulating drapes or shades on drafty windows
  • Add caulk or weatherstripping to seal air leaks around leaky doors and windows
  • Seal the air leaks around utility cut-throughs for pipes, gaps around chimneys and recessed lights in insulated ceilings, and unfinished spaces behind cupboards and closets.
