The Benefits of Weatherizing Your Home

The Benefits of Weatherizing Your Home

Weatherization is the process of protecting the interior of a home from outdoor elements such as sun, rain or wind to reduce energy usage and increase efficiency.

There are several simple ways to weatherize your home. These include things like:

  • Sealing air ducts
  • Sealing recessed lighting fixtures
  • Installing storm doors and windows

Weatherizing your home provides many benefits, such as helping to improve your health and safety, reducing your energy consumption and increasing comfort.

Sealing and insulating parts of your home will help reduce the amount of heated or cooled air leaking from your home. This will ultimately shorten the run time of your HVAC system, and therefore you will be using less energy, meaning less money will be spent.

Weatherizing your home is an easy way to reduce your energy usage and in turn, reduce your energy bill!
