Bubble seal weather stripping is used to seal the edges of your home's windows. Unlike traditional peel and stick weather stripping, bubble seal has a fabricated edge that seats in a pre-existing groove around the perimeter of the window. Sealing your windows with weather stripping can save you money on your electricity bill due to the strips' ability to keep the ambient heat in your home from escaping through cracks around unsealed windows.
