You may not fear monsters anymore, but costly energy bills are frightening, especially as a cold front recently moved into the valley.
While temperatures are expected to climb back into the 90s, cooler weather and Halloweens’ imminent arrival reinforce the importance of weatherproofing your home or office by using a window caulking company‘s services. The winter season will, to the delight of many, be here all too soon.
Here are some ways to identify and prevent heated air from being lost because of window leaks. Additional tips for creating an energy-efficient home are also included.
Check for Drafts
Drafts can occur for several reasons, including improper installation or aging windows, allowing for heat exchange. In the winter, heated air is released through gaps around the windows, increasing your energy costs.
You will typically feel a breeze through the windows, although more advanced techniques can be used to identify drafts.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, addressing this issue can save you between five and 30 percent per year.
Consider an Energy Audit
An energy audit assesses your home’s energy efficiency by evaluating specific consumption, recent utility bills, and using state-of-the-art equipment to identify and measure air leaks. Leakage commonly occurs around windows, doors, outlets, and other openings in your building’s envelope.
Once the auditor has finished all tests, including a blower door test and infrared imaging, he or she will provide you with a list of recommended improvements for increasing your home’s energy-efficiency. Hiring a window caulking company is essential for preventing the transfer of heat.
Put an End to Spooky Window Leaks
One of the most effective ways to ward off excessive energy bills is to contact a window caulking company. Caulking around your home’s windows will enhance your comfort and lower heating costs by preventing heated air from escaping.
