Imagine yourself relaxing in your favorite chair, sipping a glass of ice-cold lemonade as the window curtains softly dance with the warm summer breeze; gently swaying back and forth in the rhythm of grandma’s old rocking chair.
Too bad the window is closed, and the beautiful dance is caused by the summer breeze sneaking into the house through the gaps between the window and the frame. Issuing a duel to your central air-conditioning system.
This is a battle that many people face in the summer months. How do you stop this energy thief? This raider of utility bills? One hyphenated word will stop this scoundrel in its tracks. Weather-stripping.
Yep, you heard right. Weather-stripping, the cold weather solution to decreasing heating costs and a helper to keeping your home warm and comfy will assist in keeping the summer’s heat at bay.
Crown Foam Technologies 5# LDV (low-density vinyl) is a great source for economical yet efficient foam that is the foundation of the weather-stripping industry. This versatile weather fighter prevents more than just airflow, it also seals out environmental contaminants like dust and pollen. Which if you have ever lived near a farmer’s field, you are extremely grateful for when they are preparing for planting and the dust cloud comes rolling in. (By the way, I love farmers. They feed America – Thank You Farmers!).
Did I mention insects yet? Here in Ohio, we get these little orange bugs that look like ladybugs, but they aren’t. They are really a version of the Asian Lady Beetle. I think these things are magicians as they appear out of nowhere. However, a good weather-stripping foam (like our CVL59) can help in the effort to keep them out of your house or whatever indoor environment you find them in by filling in the gaps between doors or windows and the framing.
CVL59 just doesn’t hang out around doors and windows. It can also be found anywhere that needs a light-duty cushioning, vibration dampening champion. Because it is a low-density foam it conforms to irregular shapes and is available with easy release or a more aggressive pressure-sensitive adhesive. It can be converted into tapes, die-cut into seals and can even be used as a moisture barrier. Custom options are also available for color, texture, and gauge. These are just a couple of the options for this powerful money saver making the scope of uses virtually endless.
