Here in the Midwest, located near Chicago, Illinois, the windy city, we have our share of cold, windy days and nights. The powerful winds and extremely cold air often finds a route through the walls and makes its way through openings in the wall, mainly your switch and outlet boxes. Without proper insulation and protective gaskets, these areas can lead to a cold draft across your floors and add to your home's heating bills.

As I write this Blog, we are in store for a couple of those days and the howling winds will find any cracks or areas to penetrate the inside of your home. You can prevent these heat loss areas by going around and placing your hand near each switch, outlet, and phone/cable connection opening on the outside walls of your home. In my article, I'll highlight other simple steps to cold-proofing these boxes from the outside elements. Let's take a look at how to stop drafty outlets.
