Weatherization

Weatherization Experts in West Virginia

Weatherization in West Virginia

Less leakage = more comfort. Sealing cracks and gaps around window openings is an important weatherization upgrade that can prevent frigid outdoor air from getting into the house during the winter.

The word “weatherize” was first used around 1945, to describe the many different procedures and treatments used to protect a building from adverse weather. Today that definition still stands, but we know a great deal more about how houses perform in all kinds of weather conditions.

We also have an impressive arsenal of weatherizing products. With today's technology, there’s no reason to put up with uncomfortable rooms and high utility expenses in your home. That's why we're here to help! Our weatherization services are designed to address energy weaknesses - improving the indoor air quality and overall home comfort.

We offer weatherization services in Weirton, Steubenville, Wheeling, Pittsburgh and nearby. Call us today to schedule an estimate!

Weatherization work focuses on the “building envelope”

A good way to understand the scope of home weatherization
is to focus on the building’s skin –what building scientists call the “building envelope.”

This structural assembly typically contains wood framing (studs, plates, rafters and sheathing) as well as insulation, water-resistant membranes and finished surfaces (roofing, siding, wallboard). Windows and exterior doors are also included in the building envelope.

Most houses have too little insulation and too many air leaks

6 signs that your home needs weatherization improvements

  1. Rooms become too hot or too cold at certain times of the year.
  2. You can feel cold winter drafts in different parts of the house.
  3. Worn or missing weatherstripping around an exterior door.
  4. High utility bills for heating and cooling.
  5. Recessed (“can”) lights in the ceiling directly below the attic.
  6. Inadequate attic insulation (less than 12 in. of fiberglass or cellulose).

Research by the U.S. Dept. of Energy tells us that many households use twice as much energy (including electricity, natural gas, propane and fuel oil) as they should.

Much of this wasted energy is due to leaky and poorly insulated building envelopes that force HVAC systems to consume excess electricity and/or fuel. You can detect these building envelope problems by looking for any of the following 6 symptoms.

We're Weirton's experts for quality, affordable weatherization improvements

Weatherization problems occur because builders aren’t required to seal energy-wasting air leaks or install more than minimum levels of home insulation during construction. But this doesn’t mean you have to put up with uncomfortable rooms and high utility bills.

Home Environment Solutions’ highly trained weatherization installers and technicians can transform an uncomfortable, energy-wasting house into a comfortable, energy-efficient “green” home.
