Weatherizing: Use & Care

Use & Care

Weatherizing your home can be a do-it-yourself task, but be sure to consult a reliable manual and understand the concepts and steps before starting. You can also hire a knowledgeable contractor for the job. Each year, periodically check to see if caulking or weather stripping should be replaced.

Take It From the Top

Before insulating, it’s best to begin weatherizing the attic and basement, where increased pressure causes leakage. Then, seal doors and windows. While all seams and possible leakage areas should be inspected, weatherizing the attic, doors, windows, and basement usually leads to the most significant results.

Low Maintenance

After weatherizing, you can enjoy results with little maintenance. Each year, periodically check to see if caulking or weather stripping should be replaced. With costs typically ranging from $100 to $600, fully weatherizing your home is one of the most cost-effective energy efficiency improvements you can make.1

Overview

If you’re thinking about making efficiency improvements, the Weatherization Overview is a great place to get acquainted with the basics and your options, before you buy or install. Return to Building Materials.
