Have you started breaking out the blankets at night? Do you wear five layers of clothes inside your house? We’re only partway through fall, so if you’re already shivering, your house may have sprung a heat-leak. Don’t burn through cash by cranking up your thermostat – all you need is a $4 tube of caulk to fix your problem! If you spend five minutes caulking your windows, you’ll be wearing t-shirts around the house again in no time. How cool is that?
 
Even if you’re not feeling chilly yet, a quick caulking mission can save you as much as 30 percent on your heating bill this season! Plus, caulking is easier than you think. Seriously, you can do it while your kid is napping or your dinner is in the oven. All you need is a putty knife or scraper, a tube of caulk and a caulk gun.
