For Efficiency: Insulate Your Windows
Salt Lake City heating systems can use quite a bit of energy. This is especially so if your home isn’t insulated correctly. The easiest way to cut these costs is by sealing and insulating your glass windows and doors.
The first thing you should do is walk around your house and find which windows need to be sealed. You can check this in a few ways. If it’s a rainy day, check for signs of moisture along with the window frame. If it’s a windy day, moisten the tips of your fingers, run them along with the window frame, and see if you can feel the air coming through. If you find any cracks, be sure to seal them up with weather stripping, caulking, or another sufficient sealant so that your heating system can effectively keep your home warm during the colder months!
Once you’ve counted and measured the windows you plan to seal, the next step is to decide how you want to seal them. If you’re looking for a longer-term solution, high-performance sealants are an option and are permanent and effective for sealing gaps and cracks around windows.
If you don’t see a drop in your bill, you may need to consider double-paned glass.
