Older and Newer Houses Need Weather-stripping
Before the weather totally closes in on the greater Cleveland area, now is a great time to check your home's weather-stripping.
Weather-stripping a home to reduce cold-air infiltration and heat loss is an inexpensive and effective way to improve comfort and cut fuel bills. Most older homes and many newer ones will benefit from some new weather-stripping; even if the homes were previously weatherstripped. Old materials sometimes deteriorate, losing effectiveness, and, if installed a few years ago may have dried out, loosened, or lost shape and decrease its performance.
