You may have noticed the chilly temps this weekend, and it's going to get even colder. Some people in Harrisonburg had to scrap frost off their cars Sunday morning.

There will be a freeze warning in affect Monday morning throughout the Valley.

One of the best ways to keep your house warm is to keep the cold air out. Home Depot's Support Manager Scott Lanier has several products available that will get that job done.

He says there are cheap and efficient ways to keep the warm air inside. First, a window insulator can be bought for less than $10. It is a thin paper-like sheet of plastic that can be put inside the window in order to keep the breeze from coming in to your home.

Second, Lanier suggests cheap sweeps to put under doors to keep the breeze from entering your residence that way.

Third, window caulk can be bought for less than $5 to secure your home from cold air that might seep in.

These are quick do-it-yourself ways to keep the inside of your house warm this fall and winter. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
