Homeowners' Winter Weatherization
How can I make my home more energy efficient?
A little bit of time spent weatherizing your home could help you save on your future energy bills.
Our video series on winter weatherization outlines five steps that Missouri homeowners can implement to reduce home air leaks and improve home energy efficiency.
Air leaks can reduce home energy efficiency by up to 30 percent a year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. That means it pays to seal up gaps with caulking and weather stripping.
Window and door insulation kits provide a buffer against drafts and extra still air space can give a nice boost to your home's ability to hold heat.
The department provides weatherization services at no cost to qualified Missouri residents through the Weatherization Assistance Program. Please visit our website to learn more about this program and to find your local weatherization provider.
