Check for Air Leaks Around Windows

One of the most significant drafts in your home tend to occur around windows and doors. If you have old windows, there are a few things you can do to tighten them up. This will save on your energy bill. One easy way to check for leaks is by doing a simple candle test.

Take a look at all places in your home where two different materials meet as well as external facing doors and windows. Hold a lit candle and slowly move it around the window frame to see if the flame follows a draft. A quick and inexpensive application of caulk around these leaks can bring a significant savings! You also can use weather sealing tape around windows instead of caulk, but the finished product will rely heavily on your ability to apply the tape.
