Hot and cold air is always trying to get in and out of your home and will keep doing so unless you take steps to keep it under control. One way to do this is with air sealing, the science of creating barriers to halt the never-ending flow. Not only does it close up leaks, but it will also make your space more comfortable and healthier and save money on your energy bills.
- Why Would I Need Air Sealing? Houses of all ages can have excess airflow problems. It can come from loose windows, foundation cracks, and small gaps that you can’t even see. While one little hole might not be a big deal, several can create an issue. And in addition to the airflow, excess moisture and things like pollen could be getting inside.
- Getting an Energy Audit. Unless you feel a strong draft, it’s not always easy to locate air leaks. We can set up an energy audit to determine where the flow is going and provide air sealing recommendations.
- Air Sealing Attics. Attics are notorious for losing heat, which tends to sneak through ceiling, floor, and wall gaps; after all, heat rises. At the same time, cold air can seep inside and get into the rest of your house. A combination of air sealing and insulation can eliminate air loss.
- Professional Air Sealing. A comprehensive air sealing plan considers all angles and addresses them. After an audit, we can caulk and weatherstrip your leaky windows and doors. HVAC system and wiring air leaks will also be addressed, as will your ceilings and floors. Foam sealant may be used for bigger gaps, which are often by windows, fireplaces, and in your basement.
