Improve the comfort of your home with our air sealing services
S ealing air leaks in your home is a simple, cost-effective way to lower heating and cooling costs, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment. Heat can find its way out of the home through a wide variety of gaps, cracks, and holes in all parts of the house. With our blower door test and home energy audit, we can quantify how much air is leaking out of your house and pinpoint the leaks. From the attic to the basement, Advanced Home Comfort can locate and seal air leaks all throughout the home.
Common sources of air leakage
A ir sealing targets common locations where air leaks occur in a house:
- Plumbing and wiring penetrations through floors, walls and ceilings
- Around chimney passes
- Attic access hatches, doors and drop-down stairs
- Around recessed lights and fans
- Around windows and exterior doors
- Cracks, gaps & holes in drywall or plaster
- Around electrical outlets and switches
- Sump pump holes
- Bath fans
- Leaky basement windows
- Rim joists in the basement or crawl space
Air sealing and insulation go hand-in-hand
I t's important to note that neither insulation or air sealing alone are enough to reduce heat flow. Air sealing should always be done before insulation is installed.
As part of our air sealing strategy, we typically air seal the attic first since this is where the most significant leakage occurs. The basement and crawl space areas are our second priority. Air sealing these spaces eliminates a major source of cold air infiltration.
Fiberglass insulation is too light to stop air leakage, however, spray foam insulation can effectively reduce air leakage.
Air sealing and insulation upgrades from Advanced Home Comfort can possibly cut your heating and cooling costs in half.
