Weatherstripping & Caulking: Why, When, Where & How?

Posted By Gracen Tilton @ Dec 11th 2020 12:31pm In: Charleston SC Real Estate

Heating and cooling don’t do much good if the air leaks right out of your home. In a well-insulated home, air leaks are the greatest cause of wasted heating and cooling energy. Weatherstripping and caulking your home can reduce your heating and air conditioning costs by as much as 30 percent.

Air sealing is one of the most significant energy efficiency improvements you can make to your home. Weatherstripping is used to seal gaps around moving parts such as doors and windows; caulking seals the gaps where nothing moves. Both of these types of air sealing will not just reduce energy costs; they will also improve your home’s comfort and durability throughout the winter months.
