Is it a little too chilly, or a little too cold in your home?
There’s lots of things you can do to insulate your home from the elements outside, like:
• Install gaskets inside of your electrical outlets
• Replace insulation in your attic
• Make sure your doors have quality weather-stripping
• Change your window coverings
Did you know your blinds have an insulating effect too?
A post at Green Building Advisor explains they can affect your temperature by as much as 5 degrees.
That’s enough to get your attention!
And that number could increase even more if you have old blinds, or none at all.
