Caulking & Weatherstripping – Two Great Bang for Your Buck Investments for Your Home Comfort

Window caulking

Making your home more airtight is a great way to cut heating and cooling costs, to increase your comfort, and to create a healthier indoor environment. But how do you prevent air from leaking through the many cracks and openings of your home?

The two simplest and most cost effective ways to address drafts and air leaks in your home are using:

  1. Caulking, a flexible material used to seal air leaks through cracks, gaps, or joints less than 1-quarter-inch wide between stationary building components and materials (caulking can also prevent water damage inside and outside of the home when applied around faucets, water pipes, bathtubs, and other plumbing
    fixtures); and
  2. Weatherstripping, which is used to seal elements that move such as doors and windows (weatherstripping can be made from materials ranging from felt and vinyl to rubber and metal, depending on the component that needs to be sealed and the wear and tear associated with that location).

Both measures are a great investment for your home, with payback periods that could be as short as one year – and of course you’ll continue to reap the savings benefits (up to 25 percent on your energy bills) for years to come!

To make sure you get the best return on your air sealing investment, you have to know where leaks occur in your home and what ventilation you need to maintain healthy indoor air quality.
