So we recently moved into our dream house and as much as I love it I'm getting nervous on how much its going to cost to heat so I'm trying to think of any way big or small to keep heating costs down! Other than getting my husband used to wearing sweaters more (he hates a cold house) so that I can keep the temperature down I am going to get pipe insulators for the hot and cold water pipes from the water heater. The next thing I thought of were those little foam outlet insulators that you put behind the switchplate. Of course before I go through the trouble of doing all that I was wondering if anyone knew if it was worth the effort? I'm thinking if it is worth the trouble it may be one of those costs you recoup over time which is fine but I guess I'm having a hard time thinking you really lose that much heat through an outlet. Any thoughts?!?
