Cost Effective and Easy to Install Weatherization Options

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint

To prevent cold air from entering your home during winter, and hot air from flowing in during summer, you need to close up the gaps in your windows to create a tight seal.

Not only will your home feel more comfortable, you will also lower your monthly energy costs with these inexpensive window weatherization tools.

Rope Caulk

Caulking is a method of weatherstripping that targets the crack, gap, hole, or opening that allows air to seep through. Basically it’s like sticking silly putty in the exposed area to seal it off. However, rope caulk provides a better stick, can weatherproof windows in any weather condition, and blends in with your decor. rope tape

Installation:

  • Clean, clean, clean the area where caulk will be used.
  • Peel of a lay of the rope caulk “beads” and divide it based on how much you need.
  • Press to seal.

Foam Tape

Foam tape is used to seal windows that slide or swing. It sticks to the edges or bottoms of windows to prevent air leakage when windows are closed.

Installation: Foam tape is easy to install and at less than $3 it is an inexpensive weatherization solution.foam tape

  • First, clean and dry the area  where the tape will be applied. If the area is dirty, wet, and/or cold, the tape won’t stick properly or it will easily loose its stickiness factor. It must be more than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cut the amount of foam tape needed based on the length of window sides/bottom.
  • Remove the adhesive backing then press the tape into place to cover the area in need of sealing.

Shrink and Seal Window Kit

If you have scissors, a blow dryer, and $4 you can easily weatherproof windows with a Shrink and Seal Window kit. This kit will seal the whole window from the inside and increase the R-value, or insulating power, of the window by as much as 90%.

Installation: window kit

  • Again, you need to clean and dry the area before applying any sealing. You should also clean the insides of windows because you won’t be able to clean that area again until you remove the shrink film.
  • Cut the amount of shrink film needed. Cut enough film to cover the entire window (including some of the frame area).
  • Remove the backing from one side of the two-sided tape and stick it to the top, bottom, and sides of the window. After installing the tape, remove the adhesive backing from the other side.
  • Apply the shrink film around the window, gently stretching it as you work your way from one corner of the window to the other.
  • With the blow dryer on the highest setting, slowly move the dryer across the film to tighten it over the window. Don’t stand too close to the window while doing this, otherwise you’ll melt the shrink film.
  • Trim any film that’s left over.

LED High Bay Fixture

LED Highbay Lighting  will help you meet the challenging maintenance, safety, and performance requirements of industrial environments.

Ryan Bailey, Director of Sustainability for The Bailey Company, one of the nation’s largest forklift dealers servicing the Southeast, says, “We’ve been thrilled with our switch to LED high bays. TCP LED High Bay Lighting has been popular in the shop, and the price is great too. We had been looking for an affordable high bay for a long time.”

LED high bay lights use smaller watts of power than other lights and save up to 80% of energy, which can be seen in electric bills when used in conjunction with sensors and a lighting management system. These fixtures are more durable, withstand the test of time, and do not heat up when they are on which can result in a decreased need for air conditioning by as much as 20%.

Tim Dawe from Par 4 Plastics, Tyler Manufacturing & Par 4 Tooling has seen the energy savings fist hand. Dawe confirms, “Switching to TCP LED Sky Bay has helped us improve light output and quality and at the same time have reduced our utility bills.”

LED High Bay fixtures are DLC Listed, so they may qualify for energy rebates by your local utility which can significantly reduce the cost of ownership.

LED Emergency Lights and Exit Signs are a Win-Win!

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint

greenelDuring an emergency, the power often goes out and standard exit signs do not give off enough light to enable people to see down hallways or stairwells. LED emergency lights and exit sign combinations are a cost effective way to comply with building codes and help people safely exit a building.

Emergency signs are illuminated 24 hours a day. Incandescent emergency lights use about 40 watts of power compared to 5 watts used by LED signs. Multiply this amount by the number of exit signs in your facility, and you can calculate a considerable amount of savings which you will see on your monthly bill.

Another advantage of LED bulbs is that they usually last for at least 10 years. Incandescent and fluorescent lights on the other hand, only last for an average five months or one year respectively. This means that your maintenance costs will also decrease, as you won’t need to replace bulbs very often.

Easy to install, LED emergency exit signs are a fast and inexpensive way to make your building more safe and energy efficient.

Prevent Air Leaks and Insects in Your Home with Pur Fill Foam

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint
PUR Foam
PUR Foam

For the times when you only need to insulate small areas, like gaps and cracks that bugs and other critters can crawl through, consider using Pur Fill Foam. Pur (short for polyurethane) foam is a low cost, low maintenance solution for insulation.

What is Polyurethane Foam?

Polyurethane is a plastic material that can be manufactured for various purposes, including as: adhesives, furniture cushioning, insulation, and even as the soles of your shoes. This multipurpose material is easy to manipulate, which is why it works as a solution to insulation in both high and low expansion varieties.

Low or High Expansion Foam: Which do I need?
The difference between low and high expansion foam is simply how much area the foam covers.

High expansion foam is used on large cracks and gaps. It can grow, or expand, by 30x when only 1″ of thickness is used.

Low expansion Pur foam differs in that it expands by 10%. For insulating small spaces, the best type of foam to use is low expansion.

Benefits of Low Expansion Foam

The ultimate goal here is to properly insulate the home, but it helps to be able to accomplish this goal with material that offers a bit more. The benefits of using low expansion spray foam include:

The cost
For less than $20 you can purchase a 750 ml (32 ounces) can of this low expansion foam.

Easy installation process
The foam is easy to install and apply. Just load the can of foam into the application gun and spray it into the area you want sealed. For tips on how to use the form, Todol has a number of training videos.

Money saved from insulation
Not only does Pur Fill Foam close up those cracks and gaps, but you’ll shave off 20% from your energy bill with proper insulation. Air leaks create a temperature imbalance in the home, increasing the amount you spend on energy every month.

Where to Install Polyurethane Foam

Air leaks can be anywhere, but there are generally some places that you can always expect to find gaps that need to be sealed.

Attic and Garage
During summer and winter months, the attic and garage often mirror and at times intensify the temperature outside. When looking for open holes in the attic or garage, start with the ceiling and walls.

Basement
Air leaks in the basement can be around air vents, ducts, and other places that lead outside.

Block air leaks and the invasion of bugs, rodents by putting polyurethane foam to good use.

Best Value in LED Lighting

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint

A gas station needs bright and welcoming light to draw in customers. Inyo Shell knew that with ongoing shellconstruction on the station, they needed new canopy lights with a stress-free install. The previous LSI Scottsdale* metal halide fixtures were replaced with LED Gas Station Canopy Lights.

A retrofitting cover plate neatly closes the top of the ballast box and the Jarvis SCRT’s LED panel replaces the previously installed glass lens. By using the original housing already secured in the canopy, the SCRT-320 offers a clean, updated LED look with none of the hassle involved in removing original fixtures.

A quick installation allowed Inyo Shell to be open for business during the rest of the construction project.

In addition to the improved light output, they expect to save 16,882 kWh a year and won’t have to change them out for up to 100,000 hours – which is over 11 years of continuous use!

The Jarvis Corp SCRT-320 offers the fastest installation in the industry. Many of the LED Gas Station Canopy Lights are ETL listed for wet locations, and DesignLights Consortium® Qualified, making them eligible for rebates in most areas.

LED Canopy Lights are a simple and cost-effective solution for upgrading existing lights to LED technology.

Retrofit Your Toilet

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint

In the average American home, 45% of the total water usage occurs in the bathroom, with about 27% of that being used by toilets.  Fortunately, your household can decrease its toilet water usage by checking and fixing leaks and retrofitting toilets.

In 1994, The Energy Policy Act became a law and mandated a maximum flush volume of 1.6 gallons for toilets manufactured and installed after this date. If your toilet is more than 23 years old, chances are that it is using between 3.5 – 7 gallons of water with every flush.

Over the last twenty years, there have continued to be efforts to decrease the amount of water used in toilets. There are high-efficiency toilets that use 1.28 gallons per flush or less. You may also be familiar with dual flush, grey water, or composting toilets.

However, if you are not ready to install new toilets, you can retrofit the ones you have. An easy option is to install a toilet tank displacement bag in your toilet tank. Once filled with water, the bag will displace about .5 gallons of water in your toilet tank so that it will use less water each time it is flushed.

Another option is to install a fill cycle diverter. The fill cycle diverter is a plastic device that directs more water to the tank and less to the bowl while they refill so that they finish filling at roughly the same time.  When a toilet is flushed, both the tank and the bowl need to be refilled, and in many cases the bowl will fill sooner than the tank. In this case, the water will continue to run into the bowl until the tank water level is high enough to shut off the fill valve. Once installed, a fill cycle diverter will save about .5 gallons of water with each toilet flush. It can be used in conjunction with the Toilet Tank Bank.

A third option is to install a new toilet fill valve. The Hydroclean toilet fill valve is the only valve that solves the two biggest reasons for water loss in toilets – miscalibration and leaks. The patented mini-valve allows pinpoint calibration typically saving 30-ounces of water per flush in high efficiency toilets and 60-ounces per flush in older, larger toilets. Its’ unique bowl filler adjustment also detects silent leaks and the patented Float Lock allows minor repairs in the tank as well as flapper leak detection without shutting off the water.

Simple, inexpensive retrofits for your toilets will allow you to save both water and money!

Attic Stair Covers Save Energy and Improve Air Quality

FacebookPinterestTwitterGoogle+LinkedInEmailPrint

Most attics are not well insulated, which depending on the time of year, causes them to be either extremely hot or attic stair cover1extremely cold. Attic doors are also not generally insulated, which allows for a tremendous amount of energy loss throughout the year. Even the tiniest gap around the attic door perimeter — as small as 1/32 (0.08 cm) — is like leaving a 5-square inch opening or window open all year!

Insulating the attic door with an attic stair cover is a light-weight, simple, and cost-effective way to reduce the amount of unwanted air infiltration from the attic into the home. It also improves indoor air quality by reducing allergen and dust flow from the attic.

The Attic Tent is easy to install. You just need to secure the Attic Tent in place with staples to the surface, and then add a bead of silicone caulk around the seam to create an airtight seal. It  provides an R-value of 6.6 and has been proven to reduce air transfer up to 76%. This means, your Attic Tent will pay for itself in one year, and save you money each year thereafter.

The Battic Door Attic Stair Cover Kit includes the rigid box (stair cover), rubber gasket, a reflective shield and optional R-50 insulation. The stair cover fits between trusses and is available in 3 sizes to fit most pull down ladders.  All kits include durable stair cover and weatherstripping and is easily installed in minutes with no tools. It is made in the USA from recycled materials.

Attic stair covers are an easy, affordable way to save energy and improve the air quality in your home.
