It is time to winterize your home. * Cold air is rushing in under doors, make a “draft snake” which is simply rolling up a towel and placing it against the bottom of the door *If you have old drafty windows, you can fill the cracks with sticky foam tape or putty or cover them with plastic. 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.
