Check weather stripping on doors and windows and repair if needed

Weather stripping on doors and windows prevent air leaks and water leaks into your home! Over time, weather stripping deteriorates from age, friction and exposure to the elements and subsequently loses its effectiveness. If your air conditioner is working too hard, your electric bill is going up or you notice water on the floor after a storm, deteriorated weather stripping could be the cause. Check these barriers often and replace them when needed.
