Save Energy with Wall Plate Gaskets and Sealers
There’s been a lot of talk about sealing every crack or crevice in our homes is order for us to save on our bill in cooling and heating them. 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. However, you might have to spend a lot with this inspection, and perhaps not every leakage will be discovered in the process. Have you thought about the number of electrical outlets and switches in your entire house? If you can think of at least twenty of these, then that is more than enough cracks on your walls which is just like not closing your door properly. And if you are the kind of person who is very contentious about waste, this is enough reason to replace your entire socket and switch plates with insulated wall plate systems for your maximum saving.
The material used for sealer is much like the common double sided tapes that we find in supply stores. This, however, comes along with the cover that is made of high strength plastic and a specialize hinged cap that one can open and close to cover the wall plate. You can also childproof this cover since it includes a hold down screw if you want to use it that way.
With this sealer in place, air coming in from the outside is reduced twenty percent and at the sockets it is a hundred percent reduced when the cap is closed, which is indeed a large cutback on the hot and cold draft seeping in or the hot and cool air going out.
The Key Elements of Great Insulators
You can even customize your own outlet plates by using the stick n seal peel and stick insulated gasket over the pre-insulated outlet plates that also includes a new plate in either white or ivory and an insulated gasket.

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. And the brilliant idea of making it so easy to install that any DIY’s will not need extensive instruction to follow. They are inexpensive in the long term since the saving it generates could easily cover the 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.
There are other leakages that you can find in your homes aside from the electrical outlets and switches, like waste lines and water lines. For this you can also use stick n seal peel and stick insulated gaskets which come in different sizes.
