Winter weather is on its way – which means bigger heating bills are coming, too. Luckily, making some small, inexpensive adjustments around your home can pay off big time. Tackle these simple DIY home projects in an afternoon…and stay warmer all winter long.

Time to Vent
The warm air from your furnace needs a clear path into your room, so move any furniture that might be blocking registers. Outfit vents with Frost King Heat/Air Deflectors, which are designed to direct warm air down for better heating. They’re available in a variety of widths to fit any register, and connect with magnets so they stay put. (And in the summer, just point the vents up towards the ceiling for improved cooling.)


Flip the Switch on Drafts
Did you know that the boxes for outlets and light switches on exterior walls can be a source of heat loss? Luckily, there’s an easy fix for this! Frost King has a whole selection of easy-to-install switch socket sealers that provide insulation and block drafts from electrical boxes in exterior walls. To install, just turn off power to the outlet or switch and remove the cover. Place the socket sealer over the opening, and then screw the cover back into place to block drafts for good. It’s just one more way to insulate your home and keep it cozier.


It’s a Wrap
Uninsulated ductwork and pipes in your basement can leak heat before it even makes it to your living spaces. Wrap exposed ductwork with Frost King Duct Wrap, which combines the insulating properties of foil and foam in one roll. Even better? The foam is self-adhesive so installation is a cinch. Frost King also makes a range of products for water pipe insulation to stop wasteful heat loss from hot water pipes and sweating and dripping on cold water pipes.
