If you’re an Eastern Shore homeowner and dealt with a drafty house this winter, spring is a great time to make home performance upgrades that nip that problem in the bud (pun intended!). Read on to learn more about drafty home solutions and prevention, and how the experts at Total Home Performance can help you achieve whole-home energy efficiency and comfort this spring. 

Did You Have Problems with a Drafty House This Winter? 

If so, you aren’t alone! Drafts are a common problem that homeowners on the Eastern Shore face. During the winter, they’re particularly difficult to ignore: You walk from room to room, and BAM!, you’re hit by a wave of chilly air. Having a drafty house in the winter is inconvenient and uncomfortable, and can lead to higher energy bills.  

But now, spring has arrived. With the warmer temperatures outside, drafts in the home can often be less noticeable. However, they are still present–after all, the cracks and crevices that allowed cold air to sneak into your home during the winter haven’t just disappeared! Though homeowners likely won’t notice cold spots like they did during winter, during spring, drafts cause issues by allowing humid air, moisture, and pollen to enter the home.

How to Fix a Drafty House 

Fortunately, there are ways to fix a drafty house and ensure that your entire home is comfortable and efficient year-round. 

A drafty house is often a sign that there are crevices or gaps in the home that are allowing outside air to enter, or that insulation is outdated or not working properly. If you struggled with drafts in your home this past winter, spring is a great time to consider upgrades like these to keep your home (and indoor air quality!) comfortable, healthy, and energy-efficient:
