Trying to make your cold house warm?

One of the most common reasons people feel uncomfortable in their home is due to cold, and combating that cold is the first step to making an old home more livable.  Blocking cold drafts is not only one of the best ways you can combat cold, but is also a great step to take on the way to historic home energy efficiency.

There may be many reasons why you are experiencing cold drafts in your house. The first step is to inspect the building envelope to determine where cold air may be coming in or where you might have low levels of insulation. Homes built prior to 1993 may have opportunities to upgrading their space, not only historic homes built prior to 1950.
