Home Feeling Drafty? Your Windows Might Be To Blame
When heating bills are higher than expected and a home begins to feel drafty, many homeowners blame their insulation or their furnace. While upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace or adding more insulation to the attic may help eliminate drafts and reduce your energy bills, there is another culprit to consider -- your windows. Leaky windows let cold air flow into your home at an alarming rate, forcing your furnace to work harder to keep the temperature up.
