One of the quickest, best ways to save money is to weather-strip, caulk, and seal all of the seams and cracks in your home. Reducing air leaks can save you 10% of more on energy costs.

You DO need fresh air to breathe and to kill the mostly anaerobic bacteria.
The trick is to control the drafts, not stop them. Provide a controllable air inlet near the furnace. Otherwise the furnace will suck cold air in through door and window cracks or sometimes even the walls. Ideally, an air intake at a low spot should provide enough air so that any window drafts are to the outside. If a candle flame near a window or door frame points INTO the house, then the furnace burns paid for, heated air and runs inefficient.
Control the drafts, don't stop them!
