Benefits of Using Wall Plate Gaskets and Sealers
We have heard it said all the time that sealing every crack or crevice in our homes will enable us to save our on cooling and heating bill. What this would entail is hiring a contractor to inspect for any leakages on the insulator and check every seal on the doors and window trims, etc. This way seems to be time consuming, and takes a lot of effort and perhaps even very expensive, and it might not even be able to cover everything that needs to be sealed. Do you even know how many electrical outlets and switches you have in the whole house? If you in a flash can think of more than twenty to start with, I tell you -that is more than enough cracks on your walls equivalent to not closing your door properly. Is you are very conscious about waste, then this gives you enough reason to replace your entire socket and switch plates with insulated wall plate systems for your maximum savings.
The sealer material is similar to those double sided tapes that we commonly find in supply stores. The cover of this sealer is made of high strength and plastic with a specialized hinge cap that can open and close to cover the wall plate. It includes a hold down screw for childproofing if you want to utilize it that way.
With this wall plate sealer you are assured of a twenty percent reduction of air coming from outside your home and a hundred percent at the socket when the cap is closed so hot or cool draft seeping in or hot and cool air going out are all cut back.
Lessons Learned from Years with Sealers
You can also choose to use your own customized outlet plates by selecting the stick n seal peel and stick insulated gasket over the pre-insulated outlet plates that already include a new plate in either white or ivory, and an insulated gasket.
The Path To Finding Better Products
This is a new concept which has not been thought of until now, that of sealing the outlets and switches found all over your house. Installation of these wall plate gasket s and sealers is an easy thing to do and this is why you can do it yourself at home. IN the long run you will find these inexpensive because it can generate a lot of savings which can easily cover you initial cost. There is even double benefit if foam is used as a sealant since it does not only seal but also function as thermal insulation.
Waste lines and water lines are actually also a place for leakages to occur aside from the electrical outlets and switches. There are different sizes of stick n seal peel and stick insulted gaskets which you can use for these.
