How To Weatherproof Your Home
Before the cold weather blows or the hot summer hits, it’s important to
know how to weatherproof your home for all seasons. Did you know that
heating and cooling your home can add up to 56% of your energy costs?
The air leaks from an average sized home can add up to a medium sized
window being left halfway open. By sealing all the small cracks and
openings in your home while making your home much more comfortable you
will be reducing your energy costs significantly.
All homes take a beating from Mother Nature. Over time homes become more
and more susceptible to air leaks and foundation cracking making it more
important to properly weatherproof your home. Window
caulking and door seals dry up and crack causing the airtight seal to
leak. Foundation cracks (besides an energy vacuum) are often the entry
points of pests such as bugs, mice and other rodents. These typical
repairs if left untreated can lead to high-energy costs and unwanted
pests in the home or garage. So where should you start? Let's get to
weatherproofing your home from the outside in.
