Will Air Sealing Make My Second Floor Warmer?

A house is more than just a structure; it’s a place we call home! Home is a place where you should feel comfortable, both physically and emotionally, so why is it so hard to regulate the temperature in our homes? The answer is actually fairly simple: poor or inadequate insulation. When you have issues with bare-bones insulation, it’s harder for your HVAC system to keep the indoor temperatures consistent, especially on those upper levels. At ARC Insulation, we want to help you keep your second floor warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer with one of our most helpful services: air sealing.

Inside the ducts and vents of your HVAC system are tiny gaps. These can be from poorly fitting vents or areas where they connect from one section to another. These tiny gaps can cost you big bucks in terms of your utilities and your comfort. Imagine a hose that has some holes in it. When you are trying to water from that hose, it’s much harder to get the water pressure up because the water is escaping through all the tiny holes first. It’s the same principle with air sealing. When we seal up those holes, less energy is wasted, which makes your second floor warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and your home more comfortable all around.

If you are looking for ways to keep your home more comfortable during all the seasonal fluctuations, let us help here at ARC Insulation with air sealing for your home.
