Our Take on Thermwell Aluminum Door Sweep
With the cold weather we have all been experiencing over the past few months, many homeowners are starting to notice drafts from their exterior doors. Front doors, porch doors, and interior doors that lead to garages of basements can allow cold winter air to leak into a home, causing homeowners to crank up the heat and waste money on heating oil and/or their electric bills every winter season. The Thermwell Aluminum Door Sweep is a great solution for those who are trying to eliminate drafts.
The Thermwell Aluminum Door Sweep is meant to be used on standard sized exterior doors. To install the door sweep, you will need a few different tools include a tape measure, drill or screwdriver and metal strips – the door sweep itself will come with the screws needed to install it. The door sweep should be installed on the inside of the door, making sure to accurately measure the length of the door and cut the sweep in such a manner that equal amounts are cut from both sides of the sweep.
Although most homes have doors that are compatible with this product, some older homes or homes with non-traditional designs may have a harder time getting these door sweeps to work for them. Older homes and homes with non-traditional designs may find it difficult or not feasible to use the Thermwell Aluminum Door Sweep but most homeowners will be able to easily install these. Another consideration to make when installing these door sweeps is the height of carpet that is present by the door. Overall the Thermwell Aluminum Door Sweep is a great addition to a home to help keep cold air out and heat in.
