How to make my 1966 home more thermally efficient?
I am retired and faced with very large heating bills. The weather in NJ has been quite cold and snowy for us. Our home was contractor built
in 1966. 2×4 walls with 3″ on insulation. The windows are wood but not as tight as today, but the stroms windows leak to a point that we get snow
between them and the window. The house is a colonial salt box, The front is one storey, two stories in the rear. There was no insulation in the frount. I have tried to put some over the years but not sure how much good it really does.
With limited funds what is your guess as to the place to start.
