Now that winter is here, you might notice some unpleasant chilly breezes in certain parts of your house. It’s the dastardly work of one of Earth Rangers’ Most Wanted Energy Wasters: The Devious Draft!
Down with the Devious Draft!
How does this unwelcome house guest get into what should be your warm and comfy home? Through small cracks in walls and ceilings and around windows and doors, that’s how – we told you it was devious!
The worst part is that when the Devious Draft invades your place, it makes you use extra energy to keep the temperature toasty. So not only is it wasting energy, it’s also costing your family more money. Those are some pretty solid reasons to give this guest the boot!
The Draft Stops Here
What can be done to make sure winter at your home is warm and energy efficient? There’s a simple test you can do to find out if the Devious Draft has invaded: just run your hands around the edge of your windows and doors that lead outside (pay special attention to the bottom of your doors). If you feel air coming in, you’ve got a draft. Tell an adult and they can seal up the holes or repair door sweeps to keep the cold air out and the warmth in!
