I'm doing some earthquake retrofitting to the cripple wall in my basement(split entry home)I'm putting in shear wall all the way around and I'm going to cover it in 1" foam before I put the drywall backup. That should help some.

All my windows are updated dual pane. My attic has 12" of blown insulation. My last area I will improve on is my front door area. Its an 1972 build so the wall insulation is not the best. I have sealed most of my air leaks, I'm not sure what else I can improve on in a practical sense.
