Cold weather that began moving into the area last week and even brought some snow over the weekend is prompting many residents to begin preparing their homes for the cold weather season. Mike Rottier, owner of Straver’s True Value in Pella says window film, weather stripping, and small insulators that block the cold air from coming inside are all ways that people can keep their homes warm and their heating bills down. Rottier adds that replacing furnace filters frequently also helps reduce energy usage by improving air flow.
