5.  Patch Tip of the Week: Save money and energy by revisiting winterizing tips! With the regular cold mornings it costs us all more energy (and money) to heat our homes. While the wet weather stays away take advantage by sealing drafts, cleaning filters, and doing some weather-stripping. Insulating pipes and checking the seals on air ducts can also help out.
