Outlets , small changes, big results - Day 11
The holes in your electrical outlets let cold air seep into the house. I purchased some outlet insulation gaskets (Frost King, $1.98 for a package of 6) to prevent the cold from leaking in. They are easy to install; turn off power to the outlet, remove the outlet covers, insert the pad underneath, and replace the outlet cover. These will make a difference since we will conserve energy and loose less heat. You can also, put insulating plugs in all outlets that aren’t in use.
