Smart moves for a warmer home

How to add insulation and remove the chill

How do you know if your home needs more insulation?

Maybe your bedroom is so icy you can hardly stand to get out of bed, or your heating bills seem awfully high when your home isn’t terribly warm.

Perhaps you’ve already added energy-efficient windows, replaced your front door and installed a new furnace, but you still have to wear a coat indoors.

Adding insulation to your attic or walls, especially if your home is older, will help maintain a more comfortable temperature, lower energy bills and reduce sound transmission.

While you’re at it, sealing your home’s leaks and improving its ventilation will give you more bang for your buck.

And you might even be able to do the work yourself.

Our 12 smart moves will show you how to add some warmth to your home.
