But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
