In many parts of the country, cold weather is approaching quickly meaning the next few months will have a chill in the air. Even if your area doesn’t receive a foot of snow, there are still tough elements with which you will have to deal. During these months, homes are exposed to harsh elements; therefore, weatherproofing your home is so important.
Luckily, most of these tasks are relatively inexpensive but will make a big difference in how comfortable your home is. It’s better to be prepared than to deal with expensive and unexpected issues caused by winter weather.

We put together a do it yourself (or do it on a budget) list of how you can keep your home warm while saving money on your bill.
