Weatherization Service in Greater Lexington & Georgetown Areas

Weatherization Service in Lexington & Georgetown, KY

Making your your home comfortable on a year-round basis requires keeping inclement weather conditions from impacting the quality of your indoor environment. That starts with fortifying the perimeter, or envelope, of your home.

The term "weatherize" was first introduced to describe the many different ways to protect a building from adverse weather, sometime around 1945. Today, it still means the same thing, but we know much more about how homes perform in different weather conditions.

Thanks to modern technology, there's no reason anyone should put up with uncomfortable rooms and high utility bills. At Weatherization Plus, we offer impressive weatherization services and products designed to address the energy weaknesses in your home and improve your indoor air quality and home comfort.

Our weatherization services are available to homeowners in Greater Georgetown and Lexington, KY and surrounding areas. Contact us today at 859-203-0706 to schedule an estimate!

The Focus of Weatherization is the "Building Envelope"

To fully understand what weatherization means, you have to know what a building envelope is. The "building envelope" is what building scientists refer to when they're talking about the building's "skin," and weatherization's primary focus is always the building's envelope.

The building envelope includes the structural assembly of the property from wood frames (including the studs, plates, rafters, and sheathing), the insulation, water-resistant membranes and finished surfaces (roofing, siding, wallboard), as well as windows and exterior doors.

Most Homes Have Too Many Air Leaks and Not Enough Insulation

The U.S. Dept. of Energy research shows that too many households use twice as much energy as they should (including electricity, natural gas, propane, and fuel oil).

Leaky and poorly insulated building envelopes not only waste energy, but they also force your HVAC systems to consume excess electricity and fuel. To determine whether or not your building envelope has problems, look for the 6 signs that tell you when you need weatherization.

Weatherization Plus is your Local Weatherization Expert

Weatherization problems only exist because builders don't have to install more than the minimum levels of home insulation during the construction process and they aren't required to seal energy loss and air leaks. But, this doesn't mean you have to suffer from uncomfortable rooms and expensive utility bills. Instead, let Weatherization Plus enhance your home with weatherization upgrades.

6 Signs that your home needs weatherization upgrades

  1. Rooms that are too hot or cold during certain times of the year.
  2. Feeling cold drafts in different rooms or areas.
  3. You have recessed "can" lights in the ceiling - right below the attic.
  4. No weatherstripping or worn weatherstripping around exterior doors.
  5. Expensive heating and cooling costs and utility bills.
  6. Inadequate attic insulation (less than 12 in. of fiberglass or cellulose).

At Weatherization Plus, our highly trained weatherization installers and technicians can transform an uncomfortable, energy-wasting home into a comfortable, energy-efficient “green” home. Using some of the best performing materials available (caulk, different types of insulation, door sweeps, weatherstripping, gaskets and more), we will complete all the weatherization upgrades you choose.
