With sealing, caulking, and weather stripping, you can make the most of your heating system.
That’s something that I have learned over the years and I tell everyone the same thing.
Your heating system needs a little bit of help in order to be the best that it can be. No matter how wonderful or high tech the furnace in your house is, if you don’t have proper sealing and caulking on your doors and windows, the heating is just going to fly right out the window, so to speak. That’s what happened to us last year during the winter and that’s when we decided that we were going to have to do something about the doors, windows, and insulation in our house. We were basically paying to send heating out into the entire neighborhood at that point. There were way too many gaps and cracks in the doors and windows in our house and it was getting to be ridiculous. I felt like we were spending a ton of money on our heating bills, but our house felt like it was cold all the time. no matter how high I turned the temperature on the thermostat, the house remained cold. That’s when I realized that most of the heating was escaping out of the house through one way or another. I finally did some work around the house that I should have done a long time ago. I put in a lot of caulking and weather stripping that we had never had before and it really helped with the heating bills.
