Air Sealing

Air Sealing is The Most Significant Savings Opportunity 

For this reason, we take pride in providing a high level of expertise in providing air sealing services.

We utilize a combination of air sealing techniques.  For large areas. we use closed-cell low expanding commercial spray foam to seal rim joists, floor boards and knee walls. The benefit to you is closed-cell foam provides superior sealing properties and gives you the added insulation benefit of R-6 per inch of foam applied.

For smaller applications we use other sealing products such as open-cell foam and caulk to seal plumbing or electric wiring holes, and use sealing products specifically designed for windows & doors.

To address leakage found in ductwork, we use a mastic sealant instead of aluminum tape because mastic provides a better seal and won’t degrade over time.

Safety Assured

For any home we install air leakage solutions, we provide a free "test out" to ensure your home has proper air flow for your safety.

Why is Air Sealing So Important

All homes leak, meaning the air you pay to heat or cool your homes flows out and hot & cold outside air flows into your home. The amount that leaks is determined by how well your home is sealed. It may surprise you to learn that all leaks combined can be the equivalent of leaving a window open year-round.

Air Sealing is the process of sealing the holes and construction design issues that allow your interior air to leave your home, and sealing to prevent cold winter or hot summer air from entering your home.

You should only pay for the heating & cooling you need, not pay to replenish what is lost through leakage.  Secondly, the more air you have to replenish, the more effort your heating & air conditioning system has to exert, reducing its life expectancy. And less waste is better for the environment too.

Think of the times you’ve flown on a jet.  You’re comfortable throughout the flight because the plane is designed to ensure you have consistent indoor air quality, and the interior is not influenced by the exterior elements.  Air sealing can provide the same benefit for your home.

What About Insulation?

After air sealing, insulation provides great benefits, but insulation by itself does not stop the flow of air. Instead, insulation acts as a heat retarder in which it slows the flow of your warm air in the winter from leaving the house and slows warm summer air from getting inside your home. In fact, if a home is not sealed, air will pass through insulation. And the more air flowing through the insulation, the greater the R-value is decreased.

Breathe Easier

Keeping the outside air from making its way inside your home also means fewer pollens and other pollutants too, providing a more comfortable home for asthma and allergy sufferers.

With a well sealed home you will be more comfortable in a healthy environment and save money at the same time.
