Areas of Your Home Most Susceptible to Heat Loss

Heat leaking out of homes is a normal occurrence. However, it can be a bad thing, especially if it makes a significant impact on the energy consumption. Apart from indoor comfort being compromised, heat loss can lead to high utility bills.

This winter, don’t let the energy go to waste. High Performance Homes, one of the top rated roofing companies in the area, discusses the areas of your home most susceptible to heat loss and some tips to help prevent it.

Windows

Leaking windows can be frustrating to deal with. However, you can save on your heating bills when you have excellent window coverings. They serve as jackets for your windows, forming seals around the edges. However, if the units are leaking indoor heat due to damage, you can consider having them replaced. Choose windows that provide excellent insulation and help boost your home’s energy efficiency.

Doors

Just like your windows, your front door could be letting heat escape from your home. Temperature changes can cause the door to sag and warp on the jambs. Worn-out weatherstripping can lead to drafts coming from all sides of the door. These problems can be fixed, though door installation contractors like us would recommend having the whole unit replaced, especially if it is showing signs of disrepair.

Roof

Heat rises, so warm air escapes from your home at the top. Although your home vents hot air out the roof, it is not where heat loss occurs. Leaks and holes in your roof, as well as inadequate insulation inside your attic, leads to energy getting wasted. Adding more insulation and sealing attic cracks and holes can be done. However, you have to hire a roofer that can thoroughly inspect your roof and check whether a repair or replacement is needed.

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.”
