Understanding the right way to winterize your home

The term "winterizing" refers to a wide range of improvements or repairs that can counteract the adverse effects of cold weather. In other words, winterizing aims to maintain comfortable interior temperatures despite frigid outdoor conditions. Winterizing is also a great way to reduce your heating costs.

It's a common mistake to blame high heating costs and cold rooms on the heating system. This certainly can be true if your house has an old, inefficient furnace or boiler, but even the most efficient HVAC system can't overcome common building envelope deficiencies like inadequate insulation and air leaks. At Woods Basement Systems, Inc., address home winterization issues with the following steps.

  • Home evaluation: Our home energy assessment is the first step towards identifying the right solutions for your home. We use thermal imaging cameras to identify where air leaks are located in the home as well as rooms that have inconsistent temperatures.
  • Air sealing: Air leaks waste energy by allowing the air you pay to heat to escape the home, forcing your furnace to run longer to keep the home at the right temperature. Air leaks also allow cold air, creating uncomfortable rooms. Sealing air leaks throughout the home will eliminate these problems and allow your insulation to work more effectively.
  • Insulation: Poor insulation allows heat to escape from your house and will lead to uncomfortable rooms. Upgrading insulation in problem areas such as the attic, crawl space, and walls is a smart way to ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible. These upgrades will also create more consistent temperatures throughout the home.
