If your home is not ready for winter you should take proactive steps right now to get your home winter ready. There are tutorials on websites like YouTube that will provide you with a step by step overview on how to winterize your home. One of the easiest ways is to apply a silicon caulking to the windows making them more airtight. The small amount of caulking that you apply can help reduce your heating bill by as much as ten percent (10%). Another great way to make your home winter ready is to place insulation around the pipes in the basement, this will help prevent pipes from freezing during the winter months.
Go to YouTube and make a list of all the different videos that show you the right way to winterize your home. When you have found these videos you need to download them to your computer. If you do not know how to download these videos from YouTube there is a free youtube downloader that can be installed on your computer. Do not feel intimated by this project, the majority of these jobs are really simple to do and the money you are going to save will make it worth your time.
