Installing weather stripping on doors and windows is important for keeping your home in great shape. Weather stripping seals all openings, keeping interior air trapped, while keeping out rain, water, wind or insects from entering your home. There are many different materials that weather strips can be made from such as plastic, rubber, silicone and others. Rubber and vinyl are specifically known to be the most efficient for creating an air sealer for your doors and windows. When you hire House Doctors, you can expect a knowledgeable technician to show up on time, perform a thorough job, and answer any questions you may have. If you need weather stripping replaced or installed, contact your local House Doctors location to get in contact with one of our helpful team members today.

Why Weather Stripping is Important

Adding weather stripping to your home may not be what first comes to mind when you think of conserving energy, but it plays a critical role in saving energy. By installing weather stripping to your doors and windows, you will be able to seal any air leaks and preserve the temperature within your home. On average, Americans save 5-10% on their energy bill when they have weather stripping installed.  Worn out weather strips will not only increase your electric bill but can cause a build-up of moisture within your home, which can lead to mold growth. To conserve energy and save money, we suggest inspecting your doors and windows throughout the year, especially as the seasons change.

Along with choosing different types of weather stripping for your home, you must consider where they would be most effective. For example, door sweeps work best on swinging doors due to the constant movement of the door. Tubular and Vinyl work best around a door. This is because the door presses against this weather stripping to form a strong seal. There can be a lot of confusion about where each type works best in your home.
