Air SealingOne of the Most Significant Energy Efficiency Improvements You Can Make to Your Home.
Air leakage occurs when outside air enters and conditioned air leaves your house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. Air sealing is one of the most significant energy efficiency improvements you can make to your home. Air sealing will not just reduce energy costs; it will also improve your home’s comfort and durability. Proper testing must be done before and after to ensure all air leaks are detected and sealed properly. Insul-Kings air seals attics through many techniques (i.e. foam board). It is important when air sealing to consider all openings such as recessed lighting and chimney chases. Air sealing is generally performed prior to the installation of cellulose insulation. Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your home is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve durability, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment.
