Seal Air Leaks to Keep Out Cold

Nov 30, 2020 | Energy

Keep cold air out to save energy. Seal air leaks around pipes and any gaps around chimneys and unfinished spaces behind cupboards and closets.

Cover drafty windows using heavy-duty clear plastic sheets or tape clear film to the inside of your window frames. You can also install insulating drapes or shades.

If you have a fireplace, keep the damper closed unless a fire is burning, and if you never use it, plug and seal the chimney flue.
