Quick guide to winter proofing your house

For homeowners with older houses looking to reduce cold, improve heating, and lower energy costs, several practical measures can be taken. Enhance insulation by using heavy, lined curtains, installing pelmets, and sealing gaps in windows and doors with insulation strips or caulk. Address drafts around doors with door snakes and weather stripping. Seal unused fireplaces, old heaters, and fixed vents to prevent heat loss. Cover evaporative cooling units and use magnetic strips to seal them in winter. Fill gaps around pipes and joints with silicone sealant or expanding foam. Use rugs and carpets to insulate floors, and open blinds during the day to let in sunlight. Implementing these steps can significantly enhance warmth and energy efficiency in older homes.
