Are your energy bills higher than normal? Is it drafty and uncomfortable inside your home? You may need to seal air leaks. Builders Installed Products Albany offers whole-house air sealing in the Albany, New York area. Sealing is an effective way of reducing energy consumption by reducing air leakage in homes.
Sealing goes hand in hand with insulation, as it’s vital for protecting a building’s structure. Depending on the material and application, the following can protect against air infiltration:
Air leakage, or infiltration, is outside air that enters a house through cracks and openings. The recommended strategy in both new and old homes is to reduce air leakage and provide controlled ventilation as needed.
The air sealing process involves the use of a blower door, which includes a fan that pulls air out of the house and allows outside air to flow in through unsealed cracks and openings. Our mechanics can find these leaks and seal them. This helps homeowners reduce energy consumption, as well as prevent moisture condensation problems, uncomfortable drafts and uneven heating or cooling.
Air leaks can increase your home’s heating and cooling costs and contribute to problems such as:
Reducing infiltration can help significantly cut annual heating and cooling costs, improve interior comfort and contribute to a healthier indoor environment.
Although windows, doors and outside walls contribute to air leakage, the biggest holes are usually hidden from view and connect the house to the attic, crawl space or basement. This is why attic and crawl space insulation are so important!
The main key is to identify these areas during the design process, assign responsibility for sealing holes and check to help ensure that the air sealing was done effectively. Usually, all big holes are sealed first, then the large cracks and penetrations and, finally, the smaller cracks and seams are sealed.
