Air Sealing

Why should I air seal my home?

According to the ENERGY STAR website “sealing and insulating the ‘envelope’ or ‘shell’ of your home — its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors — is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort.”

Air leaks cause hot and cold spots

Have you noticed that some rooms or areas of your home are always too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter? Hidden air leaks throughout your home can be one of the primary causes for hot and cold spots. Most of these leaks occur between unconditioned space (such as an attic or crawlspace) and the living space of your home through light fixtures, outlets, electrical and plumbing penetrations, uninsulated walls, etc. By sealing up those leaks we can help to significantly improve the comfort and consistency in your home.

Air leaks costs you money

Most homes waste huge amounts of energy due to air leakage. For example, Thermwise.com states that “air that leaks into and out of your house can account for 30% or more of your home’s heating (cooling) costs. These energy leaks are elusive, sneaking in and out of your home as if you have left a window open.”* Sealing up the air leaks in your home can save you money every month by lowering your utility bills.

Rebates can pay for air sealing

The utility companies are offering new rebates to pay for up to 100% of the cost of air sealing. You likely qualify for these rebates even if you have received rebates for other home energy improvements (such as insulation) in the past. Our free home energy evaluation will determine exactly what rebates you qualify for.
