Stop air from escaping your home
Heat travels to the coldest spaces in your house and will look for ways to escape through gaps, cracks, and holes. Sealing air leaks is a simple, cost-effective way to lower heating and cooling costs, increase comfort, and create a healthier space for your family to live.
With diagnostic tests that we use during our home energy evaluation, we can see and quantify how much air is leaking out of your house and pinpoint exactly where those leaks are. We highly recommend air sealing leaks in your attic, basement and crawlspaces before installing insulation in order to make it more effective.
Air Sealing Attics
Since heat rises, air sealing the attic is the first place we start. Using diagnostic tools we look for holes and penetrations in the ceiling, attic hatches, lighting fixtures, fans, plumbing, wiring, and chimney chases.
Air Sealing Basements
Basements are a major source of heat loss as well. Sealing leaks here can be one of the most cost-effective improvements for your home. We focus on sealing rim joists and foundation walls to create a tight basement that keeps your home warm, dry and comfortable.
Whether you experience standing water or not, crawlspace moisture diffuses through your home, fostering the growth of mold and compromising indoor air quality. Air sealing can eliminate moisture vapor intrusion and leakage, so the improvement that keeps your home dry will also keep it warm.
