  3. 3. TIP # 1: SEAL GAPS AROUND WINDOWS Gaps around windows let conditioned air out and outside air in, which costs you money. To seal the window casings, the wood trim around windows, apply a bead of silicone caulk to the joint between the casing and the wall. Using the right caulk helps it blend in – clear caulk is typically best for stained trim or dark colors of paint; white or almond blends well with most shades of white.

  4. 4. TIP # 2: WEATHERSTRIP CASEMENT WINDOWS High-quality casement windows are energy efficient, but you can improve their efficiency even more by installing self-adhesive foam or rubber compression strips on the outside edges of the window stops. Quick Tip Use V-channel weatherstripping on windows and doors whenever possible. It takes a little longer to install than self-stick foam, but its superior performance is worth the time and trouble Build Your Own Solar Panel At Home Now!
