Historic 1880 brick home- insulation alternatives

winky54 | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

Good day, I am trying to make my historical ( old school house) brick home warmer for the Winter, anything new with regard to this?
I live in WNY region, and my heating bills run $ 400/month? I love this home, and would love to stay put where we are.
