Winterization Tips Under $10

Winter Has Everyone Cooped Up At Home

With the cold weather in full effect, many of us are spending most of our time at home. Most of us are experiencing drafty windows, cold spots under the doors, and obvious areas where we could use some winterization. There are some super cheap and quick fixes that can help keep the warmth in and the cold out but these fixes are not long-term. These fixes are easy and fast to do for anyone.

  • A Tube of Window Caulk: Use this to seal up any spots inside the window frame that allows air to get in. The window is one of the biggest causes of air leakage. Make sure to buy 100% silicone caulk as it is waterproof, flexible, shrink-proof, and will last over 20 years.

  • Socket Sealers: This is such an easy, cheap fix that can make a difference. Screw off the socket plate, place the “socket sealers” over the outlet and then screw the outlet plate back in place. When you have the socket plate off, take a moment and feel the draft that comes in through your home.

  • Door Draft Stopper: This is a simple way to stop those under the door drafts. All you have to do is peel it off and stick it on the bottom of your door.

  • Hot Water Pipe Covers: This is another quick and easy task. The foam insulators fit snug around your hot water pipes to keep them warm in a cold basement. A great solution to saving energy.
