You probably know that a few simple upgrades to your windows, doors and light bulbs can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bill year after year. What most homeowners aren't aware of is that a poorly insulated home can make these savings a moot point. Hot and cold air leaks in and out of most homes through poorly insulated walls and uncaulked joints. Our Castro Valley handyman group offers a series of diagnostic tests to discover how much air is leaking from the home. Once these basic tests are complete, our guys go into the home and to perform several basic, yet highly effective upgrades.
New weather stripping is installed around windows and interior door jams to prevent air from leaking. In addition, caulking around exterior windows and doors is applied to create a tight seal around the home. Most importantly, holes in attics and basements are sealed up to prevent hot air from escaping upward and cold air from entering into the house from below.
If you have an older home, there may also be a risk that your general insulation is poor, since many older homes were built before insulation was a common addition.
Replacing your home's insulation may cost a bit in the short term, but it can make the summers and winters more comfortable, save you more money, and even increase the value of your home. Call your handyman in Castro Valley today to learn how to fix your aging house.
