W I N T E R T I P S :Door & Window Drafts
Its been bitter cold in the Bluegrass this
winter and your utility bills have probably
seen the affects of low temps. The most
beneficial tip to “winter proofing” your
home is proper insulation around windows
and doors. If you think your feeling
cold air around your windows and doors
follow these tips.
Weatherstripping is probably the most
easiest way to help keep your home warm
during the winter. Weatherstripping is
a product that seals air leaks around
openings like windows and doors to keep
cold air out and warm air in! All windows
and doors should have the proper weatherstripping
and over time it will need to be replaced.
Its also important that each window and door
is insulated properly behind the trim.
Lots of unwanted air comes from openings
you cant always see. There are special
products available to provide the best
insulation specifically for doors and
windows, providing the tightest seal.
Even the best high-performance windows
and doors wont be effective without the
proper insulation around it.
