But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
