Properly Sealing Your Windows and Doors

When you heat and cool your business, you rely on the structure of your building to hold the treated air inside. If your insulation and seals fail, your energy costs soar and the temperatures you experience become less comfortable for it. While this is most noticeable in the winter, don’t discount the impact this can have on your bills and your customers’ comfort level when the weather starts heating up again. Before you launch into another New Mexico summer, take the time to make sure your building is ready to protect you and those who use your facilities.


Check Your Seals

The places you are most likely to have air coming in or out of your building are around your doors and your windows. If you see condensation on your windows, that can be one sign that the seal is leaking or breaking. In addition, when you check the caulk on the outside, cracks or splits in that caulk signal a problem that is either developing or present. Finally, if you hold a lit candle or a light piece of paper next to a closed window or door, movement of the flame or paper demonstrate air slipping in or out.

During the spring, the impact of this may not hit you very hard. By the time summer comes, though, the pleasant air seeping in gives way to cool air escaping and heat filling your facilities despite your best efforts to keep everyone comfortable. When you discover leaks in the structural integrity between your doors or windows and your wall, you need to have them repaired before small discomforts give way to significant issues.
