Keep the Heat Inside

Insulating and preventing drafts are two major ways to keep the heat inside your home. Here are some other options for weatherizing your home:

  • Caulk all openings around doors and windows.
  • Install switch plate gaskets.
  • Install a flap that closes over outdoor dryer vents.
  • Add more insulation to the attic.
  • Insulate the floor above crawl space.
  • Make sure the fireplace damper is closed to prevent unwanted airflow.
  • Install storm windows over single pane windows.
  • Add weatherstripping to the top and sides of all doors.
