Reduce Air Leaks, Save Money

 
In these days of high energy costs, it's remarkable how much you can save by simply reducing air leakage. The U.S. Department of Energy says you can save up to $67 a month. Now representatives from White Lightning caulks and sealants are holding a series of events at hardware stores called "Seal Up Savings" to educate consumers on their products and uses. The events demonstrate where the caulks and sealants can be applied, appropriate products for different applications, how to prep and how to apply. The DoE says reducing air leakage for a 1,300-square-foot home can result in savings of $67 a month in heating costs and $18 a month in cooling costs. Just caulking and weatherstripping your doors can save approximately $70 to $130, depending on the heating source, in a year.

Home Energy Audit

Weatherizing a home should begin with a professional Home Energy Audit. These audits will give you a detailed energy loss report showing where your money should go in improvements. Our reports show the actual cost with investment return. Its not spending the big bucks that save you in energy cost but all the little items add up in better energy conversation than just replacing windows and doors.

Peel Caulking

Also another great product is the Peel Caulking that after the winter season the caulking can easily be removed by just "Peeling" it off cleanly! I do not know if White Lightning offer this or not...
