An Easy Way To Keep An Old House Draft Free with Blind Spotz

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Review Wire Media for BlindSpotz.

As I have mentioned before, I live in a very old house – as in, built in the 1800s. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. There is tons of character and charm – and I wouldn’t change it for the world. But because we live in such an old house, there are some issues that we have learned to just deal with. One of those is drafts. So many drafts. Sometimes I walk in to a room and just know something is not right because it is so cold in there. Thanks to BlindSpotz, we no longer have to deal with them – we can fix them! – because we know just where they are. These DIY Cold Sensors are perfect for anyone who has cold spots in their home.

Easy to Use

I admit, at first I was nervous that these would be more trouble than they were worth, but they were the opposite. BlindSpotz is super easy to use – and so worth it! Each package contains 8 sensors. Simply rub the sensor until the coloring turns gray, then place them on any walls, doors, or wherever you want to test for drafts. Make sure that it is below 32 degrees outside first. After about 48 hours check back and see the results.

If there is a spot that is below 55 degrees, just take a photo of your sensor and email it to BlindSpotz. They will send you information on solutions to fix your cold home! Easy peasy, right?

Save Money

Once you know just where the drafts are coming from, prepare to save money by fixing them. With these areas all fixed up, the heat will stay in where it is supposed to. Which means less of your hard earned money literally escaping through your walls. You might not realize it by your electric bill, but money could be literally leaking out of your house. Not to mention, a typical energy efficiency autdit could cost you between $300 and $500! BlindSpotz are just $9.99 – for a pack of 8!

Did I mention yet how convenient BlindSpotz are? You put them up yourself where you feel cold areas in your home. And you get to do it on your schedule. That means no taking off work or waiting around for a contractor who charges you way to much money to come on his time to check your home. Everything can be done on your schedule – and on the right temperature day for it! I put mine up during a snowy day, and checked back about 72 hours later. I was honestly surprised to see the areas I thought were drafty – were not that bad at all! It was an exciting surprise, however. I guess my old house has better bones than I thought!
