Some might say it’s too early for Fall home tips, but here at BEAR Water Restoration and Carpet Cleaning, we believe in coming prepared. In this series, we’re going to take a look at a few quick ways to get your home Fall-ready and improve your quality of life in the process.

For our Fall project today, we’re going to take a look at the insulation on your doors and windows. If you have that room in your house, or maybe your house itself gets unexplainably cold during the winter, or unbearably hot in the summer, no matter how often you run the AC or heating, insulation is most likely the culprit, and can add quite a bit to your heating bill. Check the sides of your windows and doors to see if there is even the smallest bit of room for air to escape or make its way in.

If you do find any air leaks going to and from your home, sealing those leaks with rope caulk, weather seal tape, rubber weather sealing, or high-performance sealant can save you a considerable amount of money on your heating bill this Fall. As always, if you want to get your home truly Fall ready, call the professionals at BEAR Water Restoration and Carpet Cleaning at (989  631-3267 or contact us here on the website.
