Making Your Home More Energy Efficient with Sascho. Products that work.

An energy efficient home is good for both the planet and your wallet. Even the small steps can save you money and increase comfort in your home.

Sealing your home with caulk is  the simplest and most effective methods of weatherization. Without proper home sealing, many of the more labor-intensive and expensive measures may not yield a higher level of energy efficency because air leaks may still exist. Caulking is a preventative measure that can be done by most homeowners. Plus, it can save on costs that are typically incurred with other approaches to energy efficiency.

What kind of caulk should you use?  Check out Sashco’s website for all of your options.  You can also find them on Facebook for updates on products and projects for your home.

Common Air Leaks

  • around doors and windows (inside and outside);
  • places where brick and wood siding meet;
  • joints between the chimney and the siding;
  • between the foundation and the walls;
  • around mail chutes (inside and outside);
  • around electrical and gas service entrances, phone lines;
  • around outdoor water faucets and pipes;
  • where dryer vents pass through walls;
  • cracks in bricks, siding, stucco and foundation;
  • around air conditioners and central air units;
  • around vents and fans;
  • wherever two different materials meet.

Some other areas to you might want to consider include joints between walls and floors, and walls and ceilings, recessed light fixtures, return air vents, plumbing stacks, attic accesses, and any other surface cracks or gaps around the home.  When properly sealing these areas it is important to follow proper techniques to ensure the tightest, longest lasting seal.  Go to Sashco’s website and check out Caulking 101.
