Air Sealing

Air sealing is a vital step towards improving home comfort and energy efficiency

air sealing

Eliminating gaps and cracks ensures your insulation has maximum effectiveness.

If your home is expensive to heat and cool or has uncomfortable rooms, one of the main culprits is undoubtedly air leaks. Air leakage happens throughout the home as the air you pay to condition slips through cracks, joints, and other openings. This process naturally forces your HVAC system to work harder and will make your home too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.

Dr. Energy Saver specializes in identifying the sources of these problems in your home and providing complete air sealing services. We can help you eliminate leaks and make your home more comfortable and efficient. If you're interested in air sealing for your home, call us today to get started!

How air leaks affect your home

Why are air leaks so common in homes throughout the country? The answer is simple -- they're built that way. Every joint where walls or floors meet, every screw and nail hole, and every plumbing, electrial, and even HVAC installation has created a gap that allows air to exit or enter the home.

Hot air moves from more to less, meaning warm air in your home works its way outside in the winter, while hot air in the summer finds a way in. This means that your HVAC system has to work harder and longer while you deal with uncomfortable rooms.

There's almost nothing that the contractors who built and have worked on your home could have done to prevent these small gaps and leaks. However, you can eliminate these issues with air sealing from Dr. Energy Saver.

Common air sealing locations

Here are some of the locations where air leakage occurs in a typical house:

  • Plumbing and wiring penetrations through floors, walls and ceilings
  • Chimney penetrations through insulated ceilings and exterior walls
  • Attic access hatches, doors and drop-down stairs
  • Recessed lights and fans in insulated ceilings
  • Weatherstripping around windows and exterior doors
  • Cracks, gaps & holes in drywall or plaster
  • Electrical outlets and switches, especially on exterior walls
  • Gaps around window and door trim and baseboard moldings
  • Dropped ceilings & soffits
  • Leaky basement windows
  • Rim joists in the basement or crawl space

Nick Nason completed an insulation evaluation and upgrade at our condo last winter. As a result of his excellent work our heating costs so far this winter are 50% of what they were last winter at this time, despite much colder conditions. In addition to the financial savings the level of comfort has improved tremendously.
