It's time to weatherproof your home

Fall is upon us and it is time to start weatherproofing our homes. With the rising of fossil fuels, home energy cost are rising at records numbers. Preparation is key to potential energy savings. Don't think you are ready? Conduct a home energy audit and find out just how much energy and money you can save during the cold season. You can start with the obvious...cracks in doorways and windows. However there are many more sources of energy loss in our homes. Here are a few:

1. Electrical outlets
2. Switch plates
3. Window frames
4. Baseboards
5. Weather stripping around doors
6. Fireplace dampers
7. Attic hatches
8. Wall- or window-mounted air conditioners.

The sooner you start the more you will save and better off your family will be this upcoming season! I'm starting now!
