Look for and seal gaps between the house and windows with chaulk.
Put a cover on your air conditioner.
Check gaps around outlets, faucets etc. and caulk if needed.

    Lisa, excellent article that you wrote on the nice fix up of lowering winter heating bills as mentioned by the title of your article. What got my attention was the rope caulk, what type of material is that rope caulk made of and where can you get any extras from? These are some of the questions that came to my mind since I'm going to be doing some HVAC work on my own unit. <a href='http://www.aspen-heating.ca/en/heating_and_air_conditioning.html' ></a>
