Why have your home professionally weatherized? It’s simple— it will save you and your household money. For a modest upfront investment you can experience years of energy savings, especially over Michigan’s cold winters.
Natural gas prices are soaring all over the world. The vast majority of Michigan homeowners use natural gas to heat their homes. It’s been predicted that, depending on weather, we could see a fifty percent increase in natural gas prices from 2020 to 2021. And if the 2020/2021 winter is particularly cold, prices could increase even further, potentially even doubling.
These are real dollars in— or out of— your pocket, and the only way to protect yourself from these escalating prices, how much gas you’re using. Weatherizing your home can drastically reduce the energy you use, thus reducing your utility bills.
The Benefits of Air Sealing Your Home
At its most basic, weatherization adds insulation, air dams, and other energy efficiency improvements to keep heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer. Weatherization is primarily concerned with making sure there is adequate insulation in your home to ensure you’re losing the least amount of heat through walls and windows, as well as plugging any gaps where air may be entering and exiting.
And although you may not think your house is particularly porous, these gaps can be infinitesimal and hard to see without special equipment and testing.
Perhaps you’re saying to yourself, “Well, if the gaps are infinitesimal, why should I worry about them?”
Because it’s akin to having a small leak on a submarine. Over time, in the case of your home, air— leaks in day and night over and over. Even small leaks add up over time.
For example, In one US Department of Energy study, for every dollar spent on air sealing and weatherizing homes, $1.72 was saved in energy costs.
That’s a 72 percent return on investment, just in energy. The same study showed the average national household saved $283 each year once properly weatherized.
Cost Effective Weather Sealing In Midland
In addition to intense cost savings, having your home professionally weatherized can add other benefits to your household.
Weatherizing homes reduces air pollution and allergens (like pollen) from the outside, as well as act as a first line of defence against household pollutants like mold and mildew. The same study above found homes that were weatherized had fewer missed days of work and reduced medical costs.
Weatherizing your home also makes it more comfortable. It helps to remove drafts and keep your house more evenly heated throughout. No more cold rooms and ice cold floors.
Not only are you going to save money, you’re going to be keeping your family safer and more comfortable in the process. On top of all of this you’ll be helping the environment to boot. It’s an absolute win for everyone and everything involved. There are quite literally no drawbacks aside from a reasonable upfront cost and a few hours of technicians working on your home. That’s it.
