5 Easy Ways to Draft-Proof Your Home

Drafts are common problems in indoor spaces, usually found in windows, doors, pipes leading outdoors and ceiling-to-wall-joints. This issue occurs when there are gaps in the construction and the opening remains unsealed to the outside. The cold air that enters your home can increase your energy costs and make your interior uncomfortable.

Find out how to make your home draft-proof from trusted exterior house contractors at High Performance Homes.

Window Film

Once window films are placed and heated with a hair-dryer, they shrink and seal drafty windows. It’s best to ask for assistance when working on larger windows.

New Sweeps

New door sweeps can make a significant difference in your home. Choose a wood sweep that can be painted or stained to match your door. There are various kinds of sweeps available, so make sure to ask an expert to determine which one is best for your door.

Weatherstripping

Weatherstrip seals are an effective way to deal with drafty doors and windows. However, this task is best left to window repair experts. Improper sealing can result in leaks, which are costlier to fix. Hiring a professional can ensure that the job is done effectively and properly the first time.

Door Snake

Door snakes are placed at the bottom of a window or door. They are weighted fabric tubes that aid in blocking chilly air.

Hang Insulated Curtains

Thermal curtains can prevent cold outside air from entering your home in the winter. They are also great during summer because they can help block out heat from the sun. However, they need to be closed to work, meaning your indoor spaces will receive less natural light.

The most effective way to eliminate drafts in your home is by investing in quality window replacement. At High Performance Homes, we only install top-grade and energy-efficient products for our window installation.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
