Check Your Windows
How many windows are in your home? Examine each window. Can you feel cold air coming in around the frame? If you can, your windows are drafty and should be weatherized. If not, your windows are tight and keeping your home cozy!

List the dimensions of your windows in INCHES. Ex. width x height

Include the number of windows at the dimensions you've just listed.

Check Your EXTERIOR Doors
Are your doors tight? Or are there gaps that let cold air in from outside? Inspect the gaskets all around the frame of each exterior door.

We can provide peel & stick foam or gaskets for each exterior door that needs a new gasket.

Alternatively, we can also provide "door sweeps" for gaps at the bottom of your exterior doors instead of gaskets.
Are there any other gaps in your walls or floors that you know of?
Inspect the areas where pipes come through the wall, under sinks, or the floor. Check around the air duct from your clothes dryer. Are there gaps between the pipes and the walls or floor?
Insulating Electrical Outlets
Electrical outlets can let in a lot of cold air through the outer walls if they are not insulated! You want all your outlets to have an “outlet seal” as shown in the example on our website. We recommend that you shut off the electricity in each room, unscrew each plate to see if your outlets are insulated. If there is no foam insulator, please let us know how many outlet gaskets you need for your home.

Better lightbulbs!
COVER can replace your old incandescent bulbs with energy efficient LEDs.

Fire Safety
COVER can provide new, battery-powered smoke detectors. If you already have smoke detectors, do they meet the recommendations listed on our website?

Do you have at least 3 working smoke detectors?
Heat Ducts & Heat Vents
Sometimes there are gaps in the ducts that your heat blows through. Any tears or a poor seal in the heat ducts should be sealed with duct tape. How to examine your heat vents where the air duct connects to the vent in your floors or wall: 1. remove vent covers, vacuum out debris, look inside with a flashlight to ensure that vents are clear. 2. with the heat OFF, feel for cool air coming from outside. 3. If the metal collar is loose, or you find any other tears or gaps, clean the area with a rag and alcohol or Windex, then seal with DUCT TAPE. Put the cover back on when you are done.
Insulate Your Water Heater and Pipes:
Consider insulating your water heater and the hot water pipes connected to it. It is simple and COVER can offer 8 feet of pipe insulation.
Heat tape, or heat cable, is necessary to keep pipes from freezing beneath most mobile homes. However, old or improperly connected heat tape can be a fire hazard or can use excess electricity. Inspect the heat tape on the water pipe under your home. Is it in good condition?
Air Sealing Your Basement - Framed Homes ONLY
A lot of heat is lost between the floor joists in your basement. These are called box sills. The best way to insulate the basement and keep the house warmer is to insert rigid foam cut to size. (See videos on our website).

List the dimensions of your box sills in INCHES. Ex. width x height

Include the number of box sills at the dimensions you've just listed.

You can also benefit by insulating or sealing the basement "hopper windows." List the dimensions of your hopper windows in INCHES. Ex. width x height

Include the number of hopper windows at the dimensions you've just listed.
Seal an Unused Fireplace - Framed Homes ONLY
You can seal your fireplace either with pliable insulation (see video on our website) or with rigid foam.

List the dimensions of your fireplace in INCHES. Ex. width x height
Seal Your Attic Hatch with Weather Stripping - Framed Homes ONLY
Believe it or not, A LOT of heat is lost when your attic hatch is not tight. One simple upgrade is to attach weather stripping foam tape on the inside lip to create a more airtight gasket. If the hatch is still loose, cut a piece of fiberglass or rigid foam board insulation to the dimensions of the attic hatch and nail or glue it to the back of the hatch as shown on our website.

List the dimensions of your attic hatch in INCHES. Ex. width x height
