Issues with your window and door seals effect the well-being of your home, your family, and your wallet. Florida is famous for our warmer, rainy weather this time of year. Make sure your door and window seals are doing their job and providing the benefits they should!
Increase Energy Efficiency
If doors and windows are not sealed properly you will often get drafts. As hot air enters through these cracks into your air-conditioned climate it makes it harder to regulate temperatures inside your home. Consequently, your heating and cooling system will have to work harder—which costs you more money. Checking that your windows and doors have properly functioning seals helps to maintain the energy efficiency of your home and keeps heating and cooling costs low.
Keep Allergens from Creeping In
Living in a coastal city, we often see a lot of wind. While the wind gives us a break from summer heat, it also stirs up pollen and other outdoor allergens. Although many of us who suffer from allergies consider the inside of our homes safe havens, it is only a haven if effective window and door seals are in place. Failed seals allow allergens to creep into your home and cover your clothing, carpeting and furniture. Avoid the side of effects of allergens in your home and the need for frequent deep cleaning by making sure your seals are working properly.
Keep the Critters Out
As it becomes hotter outside you won’t be the only one looking for a break from the heat! A variety of pests such as spiders, centipedes and mosquitos can use even the smallest of openings to make their way into your home. Keep these unwanted house guests out by checking and repairing the seals on your windows and doors.
Prevent Damage Caused by Moisture
An unreliable window or door seal can result in damage to the window frame, walls and trim by allowing moisture to enter your home. Over time, water can build up to a level where it even causes wood framing members to rot. Additionally, moisture is one of the key ingredients for the formation of mold and mildew. As hurricane season approaches and humidity levels climb in Florida, check for effective seals on your windows and doors to keep your home healthy and safe!
