Weather Stripping to Save $$

Unread post by Farmfresh »

Here is a topic suggested by Patrice's hard work. Something so simple that can save a bundle and keep a house more comfortable as well. Weatherstripping!!

I noticed the other day that our front door needs it again and this is "that time" of year to be doing all this stuff.

Here are a couple of good videos to get us started. Then please chime in with ideas and questions.



Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
"Stop Dreaming About the Good Life and Start Living IT !"
Every little bit ... is a little bit.

I also made one of these in the past. They are fun and work well too.

The new weatherstripping has made a huge difference already in how the house feels especially with the winds howling at 30+ mph today.

I have a couple of draft dodgers, one for each door that I’ll be using in the winter even though I don’t feel any air moving around or under the doors now.

Boy I am feeling it!! Without our sun porch the wind is HOWLING though this house! Straight up the hill and from the north all day. Ugh.
