Air that transfers in and out of the home through cracks, crevices and holes can increase your home’s energy consumption. Here are some helpful tips to help you save energy and money.
Caulk or seal any cracks or gaps that can let air leak into your home.
- First, seal around pipe penetrations coming through walls.
- Also ensure windows are closed tightly and locked.
- If you have a fireplace, be sure to close the flue when you are not using it.
- Finally make sure your outside dryer vent door closes when the dryer is not in use.
Remember a well sealed home saves energy and you money. So seal the cracks and keep your wallet from leaking.
