As our buildings age, existing seals around doors and windows have become worn and damaged from weather, allowing increased infiltration of outdoor air into the buildings, and warm air to be lost to the outdoors. This increases the energy required to adequately heat our spaces, especially during the cold winter months. Repairing the sealing and fixtures around doors and windows helps reduce heating requirements and overall energy usage, and helps keep indoor temperature levels more consistent.
Some windows and door frames can get damaged from regular usage and exposure to weather, which affects the condition of the seals around these parts of the building and ultimately the energy requirements of the building, too. Repairing these damaged seals with new weather stripping around windows and new door sweeps, and caulking around doorways and window frames helps reduce energy consumption and contributes to better indoor comfort.
Entire doors and window frames are being replaced in situations where windows and doors are beyond their useful life expectancy and have a major impact on the indoor environment conditions of the building and the building’s energy efficiency.
