1926 House- Windows & Walls
I have a 1926 house in Northern California. The exterior walls are 4″ clay block- unfilled- 1″ exterior stucco and 1″ Lath and plaster interior. I have a variety of windows ranging from wood double hung, wood casement and metal casement. All single pane. I’ve looked at replacing them but can’t really afford to do that yet I’ve been thinking about weatherstripping them but am wondering with the low R-Value windows and walls if it would really do any good. Or even if EE windows would really help. I realize it might help some, ROI could be 20 years. Any advice would be appreciated.
