Weatherization is the process of making your building more resistant to the effects of changing the weather and increasing its energy efficiency.
This is achieved by sealing leaks, adding insulation, and repairing or replacing worn out ductwork or appliances, or even upgrading outdated HVAC systems. All of these things serve to improve your home comfort and make you’re building more energy efficient– which is better for the planet and your wallet.
4 Ways to Weatherize Your Home
- Clean up and remove any old insulation in your attic
- Prevent air leaks by sealing the attic floor
- Bring in new insulation
- Add a radiant barrier to the roof of the attic
Weatherization Is One of the Best Investments You Can Put Into Your Home
It increases the value of your home, it saves you more money in long term costs and future bills, and most importantly, it increases your comfort in your home. If you find yourself too cold inside your house in the winter or too hot inside your office in the summer, it may be time to see what can be done to weatherize your home or business.
Closing up the larger leaks is our number one priority, but the smaller ones matter, too. Generally, our technicians start with the attic, followed closely by the basement, if your home has one. After that, it is crawlspaces, ductwork, chimneys, garages, and then doors and windows.
