Ahem. Now that I've collected myself, I wanted to share a little project the hubs and I did recently to try and help keep the house a bit warmer.
These little jobbers are called 'foam gaskets' and I found them at Home Depot. From what I've read, they can cut down on the amount of outside air that comes through the outlets and switches on outside walls. Our house is old and we have draft issues for sure, so for under $3 a package, this was worth trying. They're easy to install:
You just take off the wall plate, stick 'em on, and replace the plate. Easy-peasy, as my four-year old would say. And do they work? Drumroll, please....
I have no idea. I mean, I can't tell much difference so far. When I put my hand over the outlets, the air flow is less, so I believe it's working. For the price, I'm willing to give it a go.
Stay warm, my bloggy friends. Hopefully, I'll be able to feel my toes again by spring thaw.
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
