Before winter brings cooler temperatures and higher energy bills, make sure your home is airtight and energy efficient. Improperly sealed windows and doors can add up to 15 percent to your heating bill this winter. One of the best ways to prevent this is to check doors and windows for leaks, and use caulk and weatherstripping to close up the holes that let heat escape. If your windows do not respond well to caulk and weatherstripping, consider replacing them with new windows. In addition to saving money and energy, replacement windows will boost the look of your home and increase your indoor comfort. Other important things to do to get your home ready for winter include sealing plumbing vents, closing the damper on your fireplace when it’s not in use, and installing pre-cut foam gaskets that prevent your electric wall plugs from leaking air.
