Summer Tips: Check Windows, Doors, and Skylights for Leaks

Leaks in your home allow cool, conditioned air you pay for to filter outside. Even minor leaks in your windows, doors, and skylights allow hot air in and cold air out. One of the best home maintenance tips for the warm summer temperatures is to check your home for leaks. The cost vs. value of a weatherproof home during summer is well worth the few minutes it takes to perform an inspection.

How to Check Windows, Doors, and Skylights for Leaks

Preventing drafts can save a lot of money on your energy bills. You can detect costly air leaks by looking for old, cracked caulking on the outside of your home. If you see gaps between your window or doorframe and the siding of your home, it’s a sign of a window leak. Visually inspect the threshold of your front door and other doors for signs the weather stripping is wearing down or failing. You may need to repair or replace old windows to completely keep hot air out.

Call in the Leak-Detection Pros for Help

If you’re unsure how to properly check your windows, doors, and skylights for leaks, you can ask the experts for advice. Before this summer reaches its temperature peak, it’s a good idea to call in home improvement pros to check for door leaks or skylight leaks.

An expert can perform a comprehensive check of your home’s windows, doors, and skylights for air leaks. If a leak is detected, consider a expert window replacement or other repair to ensure your home is ready for the hot summer months. To cut energy costs with a leak-proof home, contact us today.
