You don’t want to drain your accounts with astronomically high heating bills in the winter months, but you also don’t want to live in a cold, uncomfortable home. To help with this dilemma, taking steps to fix problem areas in your home can help to dramatically reduce how much it costs to keep your home warm and cozy.
Notice how when you lock your windows, you can often feel them pushing together more tightly? It make a difference for your heating bill. Even when doors and windows are closed, they might not be pressed tight against the weatherstripping if they’re not locked, which allows cold outside air to infiltrate the home. Lock your windows early, especially if you live up north. If they freeze in their current positions, then they won’t move and you won’t be able to lock them without a lot of work.
