Benefits of Weatherstripping

If you're considering new exterior doors for your home, you may want to know the benefits of weatherstripping. In a nutshell, weatherstripping prevents energy-wasting air leaks around entry doors. It keeps the elements and critters outside and the comfort in.

If your home is feeling a little drafty, old or faulty weatherstripping could be the culprit. A small 1/8-inch space around an exterior door is the equivalent of a 5 inch hole in an exterior wall. Closing this gap will seal out drafts of chilly winter air, or prevent cooled air from escaping during the summer.
