It’s been a hot summer but temperatures finally seem to be dropping down for fall. If you’re looking for ways you can prepare your home for cooler temperatures, look no further. One of the best things you can do this fall to boost home comfort and energy efficiency is to have professional air sealing completed.
Why Air Seal in the Fall?
Many homes are not nearly as airtight as they could be. These homes often have small cracks in the foundation and attic, along with cracks and gaps along the windows and doors.
Though seemingly insignificant, these small cracks and gaps can add up to major air leakage and energy loss in the home since cooler air seeps into the home through these cracks and gaps while heated indoor air makes its way outdoors. Ultimately, temperatures in the home are less stable and your heating system has to work harder to keep you warm when it’s cool outside. If you want to make your home airtight and eliminate the negative effects of air leakage, it’s essential to air seal your home before cold weather sets in.
What You Should Know Before Air Sealing
Before you have your home air sealed, it’s important to have a professional inspect your house for points of air leakage. Through an energy audit, a home performance specialist can determine just how much air leakage is occurring while locating particular areas that need to be air sealed. An energy audit can also tell you about other improvements you might make to your home to improve energy efficiency, such as insulation or upgrading the energy efficiency of your furnace. The right contractor will give you the information you need to make the most of the air sealing done on your home.
