Reduce Your Summer Air Conditioning Bills with Weather Stripping

It’s normal for energy bills to rise during the summer, but air leaks can cause your air conditioner to run longer, which in turn increases wear and tear on your HVAC system and wastes money. Reduce your energy bills with these simple tips for sealing your home.

 Doors and windows are some of the biggest sources of air leaks in your home. Fortunately, sealing them is simple and inexpensive. Weather stripping fits around the perimeter of doors and windows and can be used to prevent energy loss due to air leakage. Weatherstripping comes in various materials, ranging from inexpensive felt and foam materials to vinyl and metal. Be sure to use appropriate materials for the location—for example, felt and foam will wear out easily outdoors, quickly defeating their intended purpose.

 One of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running smoothly is with regular tune-ups from an HVAC professional.
