Forget ghosts – these are the real monsters homeowners must face.
Household Horror #4: Drafty Windows
Like a monster in a horror movie, winter wants into your house in the worst way -- and it loves to crawl through windows. You can lose about 10 to 25 percent of your home’s heat through your windows, leaving you with energy bills more terrifying than any ghost or goblin.
Storm windows are the big guns in the fight against winter weather, but if you don’t have storm windows, you can still defend your home by using caulk to seal up any holes and cracks on the outside. Follow up by applying weather stripping and a plastic window insulation kit to block the cold from the inside.
