Many towns and cities will offer a free service of checking your home for air leaks. You might call your municipal city services. They can give you a list of things you can do that will cut your bills.

No matter how I try, there's going to be a few leaks, but the worst of all is the incredible price I and many of my neighbors have to pay for oil. In a northern climate like this, it gets C OLD, but the oil barons make out like bandits on those who have to pay $400.00 fir 100 gallons of oil. One hundred gallons in below zero weather may last about a week! I don't see how people can do this. In fact, how I'm going to heat this house this winter is beyond me. I guess we just gotta take it a day at a time or go nuts.
