Home Energy Efficiency Services - Weather Stripping

Do you think you need new windows? Weather stripping may be the answer instead.

Weather stripping is the process of attaching strips made of foam, metal or a combination of the two to existing windows and doors. Weather stripping is a process that will reduce the amount of fresh unconditioned air that is entering your home.

How do you know if you need weather stripping?

  • Can you see daylight around any of the entry doors in your home?
  • Do you have a double-sided soft sweep at the bottom of any of your doors?
  • Do you have one or more windows in your home that are misaligned and do not open or close properly?
  • Can you feel drafts when you sit in front of your windows in the winter?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, you would be a good candidate for weather stripping. Contact the Home Energy Detective before you spend money on new windows to determine if weather stipping is your best energy saving solution. We will evaluate your home energy efficiency with a home energy audit and provide unbiased answers.

When you take the opportunity to weather strip your home you will benefit in the following ways:

  • You will reduce the amount of drafts that come from your windows and doors.
  • You will reduce the amount of volatile organic chemicals, paint fumes and gas fumes that enter your home through the garage.
  • You will reduce the number of entries for ladybugs, ants, "stinkbugs" and other insects that used to gain access to your home.

Some facts about weather stripping that you may not know:

  • Weather stripping is the most common form of efficiency manipulation performed by homeowners.
  • Weather stripping is time consuming for homeowners and contractors to carry out.
  • Weather stripping should be part of a complete energy solution. If weather stripping is not executed properly it can reduce the indoor air quality of your home. Have a whole home contractor like the Home Energy Detective explain the details of a careful weather stripping solution.

Only a home energy audit by a professional energy consultant can truly determine if this is the best energy saving solution for your home. Request an audit today to find out!
