Better insulating your home can help your wallet and the environment. By installing insulation materials in the roof, floors, walls, doors and windows of your home that separate your living space from the outdoors, you will lower your utilities bills and better maintain a stable temperature in your home. Though the installation of insulation in every area that is able to be insulated is not realistic, it is possible to insulate elements of your home one at a time.
Install double-paned windows throughout your house and keep them locked during extreme temperature conditions. You can also apply insulating plastic shrink wrap, as well as rolled up towels, to seal the edges of your windows during the winter. Be sure to caulk the windows where they meet the house on the exterior of your home.
