  When you are trying to cut down on living costs, energy in your home is one of the first things you should look at. There are many ways that your home may be losing energy without you even knowing about it. Here are a few places to begin looking in your quest to save energy costs. 1. Air Leaks through Walls Air leaks account for the majority of unintended energy loss in homes. The main culprit is generally loss through walls and gaps around doors and windows. If you are losing heat through your walls, consider insulating them. Cavity walls, which most homes after the 1930s are, can have insulating material put in between them fairly easily. This is the easiest way. If your home has solid walls, it will be a little more difficult, but it can still be done. In this case, you can choose whether to insulate the walls internally or externally. Most windows do not lose heat to the extent that you would think, but it is still important in the overall picture.
