Simple Way to Save on Power Bills

Did you know 30% to 50% of your electricity bill pays for the energy lost through small holes and cracks in your home? This is known as air leakage – and it’s the biggest cause of heating and cooling loss. Cracks are often found around pipes, door frames and electrical outlets.

Fortunately, there are some easy fixes for smaller air leaks that you can seal on your own with products like caulk, spray foam or weather stripping. You can buy any of these products online or at a local store for under ten dollars. With just a little time sealing air leaks, you will cut down on air loss and save money on your monthly energy bill. With a small investment and an hour or so sealing air leaks, you could save hundreds of dollars on your power bill.
