You can also caulk around the windows on the outside if they have deteriorated over time *If you have ceiling fans, change the direction of the flow, counter-clockwise produces cool breezes, clockwise rotation produces warmer air *Set your thermostat lower at night and while you are at work. Turning your thermostat 10-15 degrees lower for 8 hours a day can save 10% on your energy bill. You should consider installing a programmable thermostat *Load up on insulation. Add more between walls, your attic floor and basement ceiling *Make sure to disconnect your garden hose and cover the outside faucet with a foam cover.
