Windows & Doors


  • Keep drapes open on windows facing the sun in the daytime, but close all drapes at night.
  • Keeping shades and drapes closed will reduce chill from cold windows, lessen drafts, and reduce costs.

Storm Doors

  • Close storm doors as well as your regular door. You need both to cut energy costs.
  • Seal air leaks by caulking and weather-stripping doors. That keeps heat in - and heating costs down.

Storm Windows

Install them! They pay for themselves by keeping cold air out.


  • Repair broken windows. Even a small crack drives up fuel bills.
  • For a loose window, use caulk. Tightening loose panes cuts the cold coming into the house.
