On blustery cold winter nights like tonight you can probably locate drafts coming into your home. Walk around your home and using bare hands and feet, feel around your doors, windows, lights, and switch plates for cold air.
If you detect cold air leaking in, this means that your warm air is going outside. You need to either add insulation to these areas, or seal them using weather-stripping, caulk, or spray foam. I know this can seem like an annoying chore – after all, these tiny leaks can’t make that much of a difference, right?
Well, it all adds up. Energy Star estimates that sealing the leaks around your home can help you shave as much as 20% off your heating and cooling costs, thus making your home more energy efficient.
This is just one of the many handyman jobs we can handle for you, if you feel you can’t do it on your own. We will need your assistance though; windy days or evenings are the best time to find leaks in your home. The best way to find and mark them is with a piece of blue painters tape or a piece of post it note. Take a small piece and stick to the area that you feel air. Call us, your go to guy, and we can come out and immediately go directly to the affected areas and seal them.
