Zap the Gap

Finley’s little cousin, Henry is ready to zap the gap and stop those chilly drafts. Are you a Draft Zapper, too?

The number one cause of energy waste in most homes is air leakage. Filling in the cracks around doors and windows is easy to do with a combo of weather stripping, foam insulation, door sweeps, glass film and curtains.

Also helpful is a “draft snake” like the one your grandmother probably had lying along the bottom of her backdoor. Here are directions for you to make your own. Reuse old socks or fabric scraps and you will also help keep waste out of the landfill.

Reducing your heating and cooling bills by slashing your energy use is better for your wallet and the planet. So don’t forget to “Zap the Gap”.
