Seal Leaks


Caulk any leaks in your house, especially around windows and doors. Check areas on walls surrounding pipes or vents, and caulk any gaps. For jobs where caulking isn't enough, hardware stores have products to close up larger gaps.

Other areas to check include dropped ceilings, recessed lights, the attic entrance, sill plates, water and furnace flues, and electrical outlets and switches.
