4 Ideas for Weatherproofing Your Home

Weatherproofing Your Home

Household electricity costs are a big expense for any family. Whether it is heating in the winter or keeping your house cool in the summer, any way you can reduce these expenses will have a big impact. That’s why weatherproofing your home can benefit your budget a lot.

But you don’t want to spend more on weatherproofing your home than you’ll save. That’s why we have come up with these 4 inexpensive weatherproofing options to help.

Get a Water Heater Insulating Blanket

Insulating your water heater might not be the first thought that comes to mind when weatherproofing your home, but this small step can reduce the heat lost by up to 25-40%. With some tape and old jackets/blankets, you can do it yourself at home too.

Buy a Programmable Thermostat

This is an upgrade that costs a bit of money (many programmable thermostats cost about $100) but can reduce your heating bill substantially. It’s so effective because you can automate indoor temperatures, allowing you to reduce the heat during the day when you are away or at night when you are sleeping.

Stop Your Door’s Draft with an Old Blanket

A lot of air can escape underneath your door way. If you want to keep your bedroom or any other particular room warmer than others, block the space between the floor and your door with a blanket.

Use Storm Windows

If you have windows in your house, especially old ones that don’t keep the air in like they once did, storm windows can work wonders. They help keep the cold air out and are cheap to install.
