Know Your Weatherstripping
Jan 14, 2017

Sealing gaps around doors and windows can make your home feel warmer—and save you 10 to 15 percent on your energy bills. But with so many different types of weatherstripping lining shelves at the hardware store, choosing the right one for a particular job can feel like a guessing game. To help, we've broken down the most common options by material and profile so that you'll know just what to install to chase away the chill.

Tubular rubber, vinyl, or silicone is an effective air barrier; versions made of a narrow sponge rubber or vinyl tubing come attached to a wood or metal mounting strip. Silicone types are usually inserted into milled grooves. 

Where It Goes
At the base of doors and windows; top or bottom of a window sash; bottom of a door; between a door and its jamb.

How to Install It
Peel and stick, or fasten with screws through slot holes; silicone seals are pressed into a channel you create with a router.
