Sealing your windows with a quality caulk or sealant prevents drafts (both cold and hot) that drive up your AC and Heating bills. It’s so crazy how many people don’t make a point to do this regularly. It will cost you a couple of bucks, take you about ten to fifteen minutes, and potentially save you hundreds!
Just check for drafts around your windows using a candle or flame (check if the flame bends) or look for signs of cracked or broken caulk that can let drafts in.
Then remove old caulk using a caulk removing tool or use a caulk softener and remove while soft with a putty knife. Then caulk any draft points, gaps, or cracks. It’s that simple!
