Why Should I Bother?
If you count up all the outlets in your house (4... 10... 27... more ... ??), and consider that each one lets in a small breeze 24 hours a day, 365 days a year -- that's a lotta lost energy! For most homes & professional buildings, these recurring small leaks add up to create an effect equivalent to leaving a window open, all day,
all night, and in all seasons. Making this small improvement is especially important in climates of extreme
cold or warmth. ---> Keep outside air outside!
How does it work?
Electrical outlets and light switch boxes often cover leaky cavities in your walls. By installing these small pieces of insulation between the wall cavity and your existing face plate, you will effectively eliminate all small drafts. Each piece can be easily trimmed to size.
