Installing weather-stripping around windows and doors is an easy and effective way to reduce energy bills throughout the year. In hot seasons, weather-stripping prevents cool air from escaping, and in colder months, it keeps in the heat. The installation of weather-stripping is simple and quick. You can buy self-adhesive strips that you can cut to the lengths you need, and the strips can be attached in a few minutes. In addition to serving as effective insulation, weather-stripping braces windows and large panes of glass such as sliding glass doors, so they will not rattle in the wind. If you are interested in selling your house, good weather-stripping can also be a positive selling point for prospective buyers. This is easy home maintenance that pays off.
