Drafty Windows Got You Down and Your Energy Costs Up?

According to the Energy Information Administration, the average price of natural gas homeowners can expect to pay this winter is about 40 percent higher than last year. News like this is not very encouraging to Americans who already have to cope with rising fuel and food prices. But there are several simple ways homeowners can save money and lower energy costs, like increasing their home's energy efficiency through weatherstripping.

Homeowners should check several areas of their home for factors that may contribute to energy loss. For example, a large portion of a home's heat escapes through small cracks and gaps. Added together, it could equal the effect of leaving a window open all year long!  According to Energy Star, by properly sealing and insulating their home, consumers could save up to 10 percent on energy costs. The Duck® brand Roll-On™ Window Kit provides a cost-effective and easy-to-install solution to help keep the heat in and conserve energy.

The Roll-On Window Kit covers windows in a crystal clear film that forms a tight barrier to help cut drafts. The Roll-On Window Kit fits to a variety of window sizes and requires no measuring and minimal cutting, making window insulation a simple step to increasing a home's energy efficiency. 
Homeowners should also check around the house for other small projects that may help save energy, like sealing gaps around doors, insulating plumbing and sealing other small leak sources, like electrical outlets and switches.
In addition to the Roll-On Window Kit, available in a variety of sizes, the Duck brand offers an array of weatherstripping products to help homeowners increase energy efficiency. For more information, tips and product suggestions, visit http://www.duckproducts.com/homesmart.
