Here are a few other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable: Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape. Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is basic to swap and could take care of the problem. Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting.
