Keep Warm Air In & Cold Air Out
Most air leakage in standard homes comes from large openings commonly left unsealed by building trades personnel who built your home. Recessed light fixtures, attic accesses, chimneys chases, plumbing penetrations, and duct chases are a shortlist of common air leakage sites in your home. Advanced home sealing technology is one of the smartest investments you can make to improve the efficiency of your home. The intentional openings in a typical home often add up to the equivalent of leaving a window open year-round. Through these air pathways comfortable conditioned air escapes driving up your energy costs.
Even without insulation work, air sealing can benefit your home tremendously. In addition to keeping warm air in and cold air out, air sealing can aid in pest management, reduce noise from outside, allow for better humidity control, and lessen the chance for ice dams.
The greatest benefit to air sealing your home — besides lowering your energy bill — is that it reduces the amount of pollen, dust, insects, and drafts intruding on your home.
