What Causes Air Drafts In Your Home?

December 11, 2019 | Blog

No matter how high you turn up your heater, it is no match for the dreaded air draft. Air drafts are caused by lack of quality insulation. The heated air leaks through the cracks in your walls and gets replaced by the cold air from outside. You shouldn’t have to live like this! Luckily, Express Air has all you need to know about air drafts – and how to prevent them.

Why Does This Happen?

Maybe you just have terrible karma, but it’s most likely because of the difference in pressures. The cold air outside compared to the warm air inside your home creates a significant pressure difference that causes a suction effect. This pulls your warm air outside and pushes cold air back inside.

Where Is My Warm Air Escaping?

Most likely answer? Your window and door frames. If your windows are even a few years old, they will most likely have developed tiny cracks by now that can act as a vacuum sucking out your warm air. Same with doors. Check your outlets to make sure they’re sitting tightly against the wall. If they’re loose, air could be leaking through

How Do You Stop It?

In order to defeat cold air drafts once and for all, you have to deprive warm air any potential means of escape. Invest in some heavy curtains for you windows. You could also try caulking around the frame or weather stripping. For doors, check and make sure the threshold is in the right place. Re-secure it if not. Straighten and tighten up any loose outlets.

If you’ve done everything you can and your home is still feeling too cold, there might be an issue with your heater. Call us today at Express Air Conditioning and Heating for all your HVAC repair and replacement needs.
