Keeping cold air out when you have the heat on makes a huge difference in your heating bill. By adding some simple insulation, you can prevent heat from escaping. Check your home for spaces where there is a significant draft or where it’s always colder than the rest of the house.
Attics and crawl spaces are easy places to start. You can purchase one or two packages of foam insulation and staple or set them in place in an afternoon. Invest in high-quality insulation and sealant for these spaces to ensure the best heat protection. Don’t forget to test to ensure there is still sufficient ventilation to prevent moisture or carbon monoxide buildup.
