Inspect the seal of exterior doors and windows and exterior siding.
Caulk exterior doors, windows and exterior hardboard siding. Use clear silicone if you will not paint or a paint-able caulk if you will. Caulk small holes or cracks of vinyl siding with silicone, or replace sections of siding that are heavily damaged.  Check window and door seals seals, and replace strips if needed.
