Will your home be cozy this winter?
The doors and windows in your home can allow air leaks even when they are closed. Weather stripping your doors is easy and it can keep energy costs down. It'll also help you stay cozy in winter. Seal cracks around your door with weather stripping to winterize your home and keep out drafts.
Weather stripping can help seal air leaks in areas of your home, such as doors, windows and attic access points. If you decide to take on an entire home sealing project, identify all the air leaks in your home, including those in unseen holes or pathways in your plumbing, wiring and HVAC system.
Doors require two different kinds of weather stripping: door sweeps for the bottom and self-adhesive foam for the top and sides.
