How to Fix a Drafty Window
Are you literally throwing money out the window of your home? If you have windows that allow cold air in and warm air out, you are indeed doing just that. With energy costs fluctuating, you need to ensure that your home is functioning as efficiently as possible. Sealing the windows with weather stripping will help block out unwanted cold in the winter and even keep the air-conditioning inside during the summer by blocking the tiny spaces in between your windows and the outside elements. Learning how to fix a drafty window requires a some effort, but you can save energy and money, since the cost of most do-it-yourself weather stripping can be recovered in energy savings in a year’s time.
- Weather stripping can continue to provide benefit in warmer seasons. Just as hot air escapes in the winter months, cold air escapes through the same places in the summer. Leave the weather stripping in place to help you save energy and money year-round.
