weather-resistant plastic

proper insulation.

whent he sun is out to help

warm your home, and close

them when the sun goes

down to reduce heat loss.

7. Eliminate gaps between

your door and threshhold by

adding a seal to the bottom of

the door.

fireplace damper, and closet

doors, and remove or cover air
