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!
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.
