Drafts can be a problem in the winter especially. They make it hard for you to keep your home as warm as you’d like since cold air comes in. You can add weather stripping to your doors and that could help. This will show you how to properly install it for maximum effect.
- To help keep a home cozy and to save energy bills adding foam weatherstripping around the windows and doors are very much essential.
- Measurement of any gaps between the door jamb and the actual door is important before buying weatherstripping materials. If there is a narrow gap,purchasing a a thinner foam is advised such that the doors will shut easily when closed.
- Tightening the hinges on the door is a good tip to be sure it’s hanging correctly and not causing any unnecessary gaps that air could leak through.
