Do you have drafty doors or windows?

If your windows or doors are a source of chilly drafts all winter long, the problem could be worn-out seals, weather stripping or thresholds. Then again, sloppy installation might be to blame. When cold weather arrives, hold the back of your hand near the edges of windows or doors to track down the source of leaks. If you feel cold air flowing out from behind the trim, chances are the spaces around the window and door jambs weren’t properly sealed.

Plugging these leaks is time-consuming but well worth the job: You have to pull off the interior trim, seal around the jambs and then reinstall the trim.  If your doors and windows are airtight, the payoff can be big too. Stopping drafts not only makes your home more comfortable but also cuts energy bills (air leaks are a major source of heat loss in most homes).

Check your window or door warranty before using expanding foam around them! If the window or door is still under warranty, using expanding foam insulation will more often than not void the warranty.
