This winter has been so cold!  I’m not one to complain, I mean – I live in Minnesota, it’s to be expected but so many days have been below zero this winter.  Not only is it wearing on us but it’s killing us financially.  Propane isn’t cheap and our house is so inefficient.  After having to fill our propane tank again a few weeks ago, I realized that it’s time to figure out what we need to do to fix some of the spots that air is just seeping out of our house.  Maybe then the furnace won’t run so often.

BlindSpotz lets you do a home energy efficiency audit.

Home energy audits can be expensive, but without one, so can your heating bill.  That’s why I was excited to hear about BlindSpotz.  Homes have blind spots that create energy losing drafts in places you may never think about.  One spot that surprises me is a few of our outlets.  I can feel the air coming through them when it’s windy outside.  Using the BlindSpotz sensors around our house seemed like the perfect way for us to figure out what areas we needed to work on first.BlindSpotz lets you do a home energy efficiency audit.

I set our sensors around the house in different places; by the door, toward the crawl space, near the laundry room – you get the idea.  Each pack has eight sensors so you can cover a good amount of spaces around your home.  Press each sensor on, rubbing them to get them ready and leave them be for 48 hours.  Once your 48 hours have passed, take a picture of them and send them to the BlindSpotz team.  They will reply back to your email with some different ways to fix those problem areas as well as a coupon to your local retailer.
