Air Sealing for an Efficient Home
Air sealing is a service designed to tighten your home’s border between the conditioned (that is, heated and cooled) and unconditioned outdoor air. By strengthening this boundary (which is commonly referred to as the “building envelope”), the heated and cooled air in your home is less likely to escape. Your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard to get your home to a desired temperature, meaning they can operate more efficiently.
Additional Air Sealing Benefits
Though air sealing’s primary benefits are efficiency related, the service comes along with a slew of other benefits, including:
Cut Heating & Cooling Bills
Since your HVAC systems don’t need to run overtime to compensate for air leaks, you can expect lower heating and cooling bills. You’ll save money and energy. It’s a win-win.
Improve Insulation Performance
When applied properly, air sealing can significantly boost the performance (and add to the R-value) of your existing insulation. Think of your insulation as a fleece jacket, and the air sealing as a windbreaker on top: it adds an extra layer of protection against air and moisture.
Lessen Moisture, Mold, and Dust Issues
Speaking of moisture protection, air sealing can help eradicate mold problems in your home, since it works effectively as a moisture barrier. Since your home is less leaky after an air sealing service, issues like dust infiltration are also less common, meaning you can enjoy healthier, cleaner indoor air.
Reduce Temperature Imbalances
Again, since this service is designed to eliminate air leaks, it cuts down on drafts throughout your home and helps keep the indoor environment at a consistent temperature.
Not Sure Where to Start? Schedule an Energy Assessment!
The specific sources of air leaks can be hard to detect. While there are areas that are common culprits — windows, doors, attic hatches, baseboards, wire penetrations, and areas around the chimney, for example — each home is unique. The best place to start? Schedule a professional energy assessment with SEAL. We’ll use diagnostic tools to determine the areas of your home that are leaky, and work with you to come up with a strategic upgrade plan that fits your home’s needs and project budget.
