A fast, effective way to keep unwanted drafts and outside air from entering your home.
Every home is designed with the idea of keeping conditioned air inside and not allowing outside air to enter. Design and real-world functionality don't always sync up, however, and many homeowners discover this the hard way. Over time (or as a result of shortcuts in craftsmanship), small cracks and leaks can pop up in crucial areas of your home, allowing conditioned air to escape and unconditioned air to enter. Fortunately, there's a solution to this all-too-common issue – air sealing.
What is Air Sealing?
If cracks and leaks exist in your attic, basement, ductwork or floors, you can expect that they're not going to get better on their own. Over time, this can not only affect indoor air quality, but it can cause your home's systems to work harder than they should, thus also leading to higher energy bills. Air sealing tackles each and every problem area within the home and works hand in hand with insulation to improve home comfort and reduce concerns over outside air entering the home.
Do I Need Air Sealing?
Many people don't realize that even the most well-built homes can become susceptible to air leaks over time. Normal wear and tear and inclement weather can cause leaks to get worse, which is why every homeowner owes it to themselves to have their home evaluated for spots where leaks may be occurring. Once found, air sealing will nip the problem in the bud, providing you and your family with the following benefits
- Improved indoor air quality
- Longer lifespan for home systems
- Better home performance
- No more uncomfortable drafts
