Weather stripping for winter


Rubber weatherstripping is a very durable material that goes around the outside of your door. It typically comes in a tube structure that is flexible. To install it, you may have to apply adhesive to the door frame, though one forms of weatherstripping come with a self-adhesive already applied. Therefore, you may just have to pull off the protective paper and stick the weatherstripping in place.

Benefits

Energy Savings - One of the major benefits of installing rubber weather stripping is that it can save you substantial amounts of energy. Putting this around the outside of the doors will prevent air from the outside from coming in. This will mean that your air conditioner or heater runs less. Therefore, this will result in a lower utility bill for you.

Easy Installation - Rubber weatherstripping is one of the easiest materials to install. All you will need is a knife to cut it with. Then just press it into place and you are done.

This is the last post for winterizing a house. Even I'm getting bored with it.  I hope everyone will learn from the information.
