UNDATED (WTVB) - There are things you can do this weekend to seal up your home and improve the energy efficiency, and save a few dollars as forecasters are saying the coldest days may still be just ahead. Natalie Joubert with the Consumers Energy Alliance says a couple of free things you can do include turning down the temperature on your water heater to about 120 degrees, and turning down the temperature on your thermostat about 10 to 15 degrees when you leave. She says it might be a worthwhile investment to feel around windows for cold air and seal the frames with calk, and perhaps put up plastic on the interior windows.

Climatologists are saying we could see some relief in early February when the Jet Stream is expected to head north and act as a barrier to all this extreme arctic cold.
