Does your home have uneven temperatures, drafts, or high heating bills? If so, air sealing your home can greatly reduce your energy bills and improve home comfort for many years.
The enclosure of your home or building is like the material of a dry suit. You can only stay as warm and dry as the dry suit manages to keep out water and cold temperatures. Most homes have significant leaks, according to ENERGY STAR. All the leaks, gaps, and cracks in the average home exterior are equivalent to leaving a window open all throughout the year. Just think of how much you would save on your heating bill by sealing up those cracks and gaps! Air leaks can also cause moisture issues in the home, degrading indoor air quality and the home’s structural durability.
