Air Sealing

Seal the cracks and openings where heat escapes and air invades

Technician shows homeowner air sealing results of home energy auditAir leakage into and out of your house represents about 40 percent of energy loss in a typical home. Your home acts like a giant chimney: Heat rises through the interior up to the attic, then is replaced by outside air that enters through gaps in the basement or lower windows.

If you notice drafts coming from under your basement door, around windows, doors and vents, or you have high energy bills, your home is not securely sealed.

We’re able to greatly reduce or eliminate air loss by sealing these critical areas:

  • Rim joist – this is the area where your basement meets the first floor, and is not sealed at all in many homes
  • Windows and doors
  • Recessed and “can” lighting
  • Electrical circuit boxes, outlets, plates, and switches
  • Chimneys
  • Exhaust vents and vent pipes, like those from your hot water heater, bathroom fans, etc.
  • Radiators and duct penetrations

The right sealant for every crack, gap, and location

We use spray foam, silicone sealant, and weather stripping to match the right material to the air-sealing need.

Benefits for you

  • Significant energy savings and lower bills
  • Lower environmental impact
  • Increased comfort, decreased draftiness
  • Less chance of vermin getting inside
  • Enhanced fire safety
  • No maintenance
  • One of the most cost-effective home improvements you can make

If you had a one foot hole in your house you’d seal it up. All the cracks and gaps in your home can add up to an air loss space this big!
