3 Reasons Your Home Should Be Sealed In The Summer
Posted on June 11th, 2020 by Devine Bros
Most people don’t think of summer as the most important season to tightly seal up your windows and doors to prevent air leakage. This involves a process called caulking, where you can cover up the joints in these areas. However, with summer comes extreme heat and wild storms. It’s important to seal up your home this season for numerous reasons, and here are just a few:
- Energy Efficient
One of the most positive outcomes of air sealing the vulnerable spots in your home this summer is so that you can be more energy efficient! The cool air from your air conditioner can leak through your doors and windows, forcing you to run your HVAC for longer periods of time. With proper sealing, you can keep that cool air in while lowering your energy usage.
- Protecting Your Garage
The last thing you need to deal with is your garage door crashing in on itself because of intense wind, so is it really ready for summer? Instead of adding caulking or insulation, your garage door needs proper bracing and beams to keep it sealed shut and protected.
- Storm Damage Prevention
We’ve all seen how summer brings unpredictable weather patterns, so it should be no surprise that sealing your home this season can prevent storm damage! Heavy rain and intense winds can cause leaking in areas of your home, so be sure to start caulking up your windows and doors and add insulation to your roof and vulnerable spots.
It’s important to keep your home cool this summer, so don’t let air leaks get in the way of that.
