Green Your Autumn: Keep Cool Drafts Out
The Autumnal Equinox is upon us, so this week's tips are about how to make sure your eco-habits don't shift with the season.
Tip #4: Seal Windows and Doors
Fall's the perfect time to start preparing your home for cooler temperatures. According to the Department of Energy, reducing drafts can cut energy usage up to 30%. So inspect doors and windows to ensure that there are no small spaces through which warm air can escape. Rather than crank up the heat, use nontoxic caulking on windows and homemade draft-blockers along the bottoms of doors.
