“Weatherization” is a term for energy-saving practices and upgrades you can make in your hope to save energy, make living spaces more comfortable and lower utility bills. Some ways you can weatherize your home include:
Blocking the summer sun with window coverings to improve the efficiency of air conditioning.
Removing window blockings in the winter to let the sunshine in to help warm the home.
Reducing heat or adjusting air conditioning at night, during the day if no one’s home, and during extended absences.
Wrapping hot water heaters with insulation and keeping water temperature around 120° or lower.
Considering insulating spaces like basements, attics or crawl spaces – where the home is closest to outside air – to preserve indoor temperatures.
