Air Seal Your Home & Reduce Your Heating & Cooling Costs
Air Sealing a home is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Air leakage through windows, doors, walls, rim bands, floors and ceilings has been shown to increase heating and cooling costs 35-40%.
Unsealed chases and cavities in attics and crawl spaces bring unconditioned and unfiltered air into living areas. Sealing these air leaks will not only make your home more comfortable and energy efficient - it'll improve the quality of the air you breate. Wherever possible, we use environmentally friendly caulks, foam, insulation board, etc., along with good building science to reduce air infiltration.
The quality of the air you breathe can directly affect your family's health. Pollutants and irritants in the air can cause asthma, allergic reactions, constant tiredness, and many more conditions. For your protection, we'll ensure that your home's ventilation equipment is working properly, and your indoor air is clean and fresh.
In the typical home, as much as 25% of the heating and cooling dollars escape through the unseen cracks and gaps usually found in attics, basements, duct systems and around floors, doors, windows, plumbing, recessed lighting, and electrical outlets. It's like leaving a window open all year round.
Benefits of home insulation & air sealing include:
- Reduces energy loss and lowers utility bills
- Minimize the risk of ice dams, mold, mildew, and structural damage caused by excess moisture
- Reduces drafts to help ensure a more comfortable home - room to room, season to season
