When that first chill hits us Floridians, it hits a deep shudder to our hearts. Hands and feet keep a perpetual cold that seems to strike straight to the bone. Along the Gulfcoast, our minds recall our hot summer nights and long sunshine-lit days long foregone. Then, we feel the chill making its way around the base of the windows or along the frames of the doors. Air leaks around windows and doors is the most common form of heat loss. In fact, “a 1/8-inch gap under a 36-inch-wide exterior door may seem insignificant, but it will let as much cold air into your home as a 2.4-inch-diameter hole punched in the wall,” (Washington Post, n.d.).
