LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It seems like the colder it gets outside, the less our heat stays in. But home expert Mike Roosa gave us five ways to keep our heat where it belongs.
First is weather stripping. Roosa said, "This is quickly applied weather stripping right here. It goes around your doors and around your windows."
Second, using a spray insulation foam. "It goes in the gaps where you don't put weather heating. There are always gaps around your windows and your doors," Roosa explained.
Third, is a device called a draft buster. "It's that thing that goes under your door to keep the air from going in. It's a very quick and efficient way for a quick fix."
Fourth, something we often forget to change, furnace filters. Roosa added, "If you change out your furnace filter and keep them clean, more efficiency on the air flow and you'll find your rooms are a lot warmer."
Last but not least, space heaters. "You can set your thermostat to 68 degrees and put this in the room you're in. It will keep that room a lot warmer and save on electricity," Roosa said.
