                Before colder weather settles in and gatherings move from the outdoor chiminea to
                the living room fireplace, there are a few projects you can tackle to create a healthy,
                efficient indoor haven for the family. Seal gaps and cracks throughout the home with
                Dow Great Stuff Gaps & Cracks Insulating Foam Sealant (#13617, $3.98) to save
                both energy and money. Ensuring your attic has at least 15 inches of insulation will
                also save up to $200 a year. Once the cracks have been sealed and insulation
                repaired, invest in a programmable thermostat that can be pre-set to adjust
temperature when sleeping or away.


Since you will be spending more time indoors, improving indoor air quality should
be a top priority. Replace all furnace, vacuum and air purifier filters to reduce indoor
air pollutants. Well-maintained air purification systems will protect your family from
allergens and other airborne pathogens that may be of concern during winter
months. While taking the time to replace filters, vacuum dust from the baseboard
heaters and cold air returns.
