Weatherization:The Basics

Weatherization is commonly thought of as just a fancy word for insulation. Many people think that just insulating your home is enough to protect it from the elements. However, Weatherization is so much more than that.

Basically, Weatherization is weatherproofing. Regardless of the season, Weatherization will keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. Whether it is zero degrees in the middle of February or 95 degrees in the beginning of August, your home heating and cooling bills will be reduced and your family will be happy.

Another feature of Weatherization is that not only does it reduce heating and cooling, it also protects against rain, wind and insects. A properly sealed home will not allow water, outside temperatures and unwanted guests in. Also, the cellulose used to insulate contains insect and rodent deterrents.

Saving money on home energy bills is crucial to all of us. A study provided by the United States Department of Energy established that there is a 32% deduction on heating and cooling costs after a home is professionally weatherized. Weatherization doesn’t require the replacement of existing furnaces or heaters, so homeowners can save money by not having to replace these expensive appliances.
