Weatherization is the process of getting your home prepared for weather extremes by separating the outside weather from the indoor climate. A home that is properly weatherized allows you to hang on to most of the heat you buy in the winter and keeps the house from getting unbearably warm in the summer.
Weatherizing your Oregon or Washington home can result in significant energy savings and improved comfort. While it’s possible to heat and cool a poorly weatherized home with a large enough HVAC system, you’ll end up paying unnecessarily high energy bills and wearing out your mechanical systems more quickly. Typical weatherization services like insulation and air sealing are less expensive than blasting the heater or air conditioner and allow for more even indoor temperatures.
