Why Use Weatherization?
Weatherization is vital in a home or building that is lacking energy efficiency, due to inefficient air sealing. Doors and windows can be leaking air, which reduces the efficiency of an HVAC system. If your home or building is leaking air, weather stripping is popular for improving the air seal and can greatly improve comfort and performance of a building, plus save resources.
Where in a Building Is Weatherization Normally Used?
Weatherization is used in buildings of all types on exterior doors and windows. Exterior doors especially, in both commercial and residential, can utilize weather stripping, since they are a critical area that often leaks air. Exterior door weather stripping seals gaps, which improves the efficiency of a building during the hot summer months and cold winter months.
In What Geographies Can Weatherization Be Used?
Weatherization is used in all geographies in buildings of all types. However, weatherization is most prevalent in areas with more extreme weather, whether it be hot or cold. Extreme weather is most likely to cause energy costs to rise and resources to be wasted, if air gaps are not sealed properly.
Can Weatherization Be Used in Residential or Commercial Construction?
While weatherization is most often utilized in residential construction, it is also seen in commercial construction. No matter the building or construction type, weatherization is a critical ally in helping reduce air leakage, improve energy efficiency, and increase overall comfort.
