Weather-stripping doors the benefits for a property owner.
- Weather-stripping doors provide an insulation element for your home; it keeps outdoor temperatures from changing the temperature inside your home. Temperature control is the best way to save money on expensive heating and cooling costs over the year. Studies indicate you save at least 15 percent on your utility bills when you weather-strip your entry doors.
- Weather stripping keeps unwanted visitors from entering your home. Insects and dust can make their way through cracks and crevices in your doorjamb and take up residence inside your home. Respiratory problems come from high exposure to dust, and insects carry all sorts of bacteria that can be transferred to humans when they interact.
- The weather and climate can be cruel masters; intense UV rays will engulf a door and radiate heat through the tiny openings that are created when a door doesn’t fit snugly in the doorframe. When hail, heavy rain or snow pound on the door, it can enter when there is nothing to beat back the onslaught that the weather events bring.
- Weather stripping and door sweeps help reduce damage to the door. After opening and closing a door a million or so times, a door will see wear to the outer dimensions of the exterior edge of the door creating a slim opening that will need to be repaired to maintain energy-efficiency
