Are you paying more on your monthly utility bill than you should be? You are if air is leaking out your windows and doorways! Together, inadequately sealed windows and doors account for 22% of lost heated or cooled air, meaning that dollars are literally flying out the window! However, for very little cost and effort, homeowners can seal these leaks and see an immediate improvement in both comfort and utility bills.
Weatherstripping is an excellent, and inexpensive, way to combat the air leaks from windows and exterior doors. Available in an easy to install, adhesive backed roll form from all major hardware stores, weatherstripping is a small expense that could lead to big savings. Additionally, ensuring that windows are properly caulked and that doors have door sweeps properly installed can add to your overall efficiency! A home that is properly insulated and sealed will retain more heated/cooled air more easily, allowing your HVAC system to work less, saving you money and prolonging the life of your system.
