2. Plastic film covering on your windows – by placing a film covering on your windows you can greatly reduce heat loss during the heating season. They also reflect the sunlight during the hotter months letting your air conditioner work less.
3. Seals around doors and windows – all you have to do for this is to feel around your doors and windows and check for airflow. You may need to seal them with weather stripping or caulking. This is usually a very inexpensive fix which will save you lots of money.
