You don’t have to spend a lot of money to save money. Here’s a list of some common household items you can use throughout this site that can actually help save on heating or cooling costs (think of it as a supply list):

Electrical Tape

  • Weather resistant and can withstand temperatures of 15 – 194 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Use in a variety of places, such as light switches or electrical outlets, where some insulation may be necessary

Duct Tape

  • Can be used to seal ducts (Of course)
  • Can also be used to seal windows in certain instances (along with other tapes)

Bath Towels

  • Use to block bottoms of drafty doors and windows

Aluminum Foil

  • Can be used to deflect heat away from walls and into room

Incense sticks / Candles

  • Can be used to determine where air is leaking into the house

Newspapers / Cardboard

  • Insulate fireplaces

These are just a few items…you will find much, much more scattered in the different articles on this site!
