Energy Saving Tips:

Weather Stripping Windows and Doors to Save Energy

Have you ever considered how important Weather Stripping is in regards to home energy savings? If not, you need to know that air leaks (air infiltration) can account for 30 to 40% of the home's overall heat and cooling loss. The older your windows and doors get the more worn your weather stripping will get. Replacing or upgrading your weather stripping can be considered an investment because it will more than pay for itself in energy saving costs that are incurred not only in the winter, but in the summer as well.

Benefits of Weather Stripping Windows
1. Weather Stripping provides the barrier against air and water.
2. It is the only element of  'operating windows' that make them reasonably air tight.
3. Warm, moist air leaving the house during the winter months can dampen your insulation, reducing its effectiveness, which would result in greater Heating and Cooling costs.
4. If new windows are not in your budget, replacing and upgrading your weather stripping will increase the energy efficiency of your existing windows.
5. 'High Quality' Weather Stripping applied by a professional really does improve the insulating performance of windows.
1. An 1/8" space between a standard exterior door and its threshold is equivalent to a two square inch hole in the wall. Closing these gaps with weather stripping will significantly lower your energy costs.
2. The primary source of energy leakage in your house is the 'Entry Door'.
3. If you see any daylight anywhere around the frame of a door, it means you will experience 'energy loss'.
4. Prevents noise and pest intrusion from the exterior.
5. Provides a barrier against air and water.
