Reducing the amount of air leakage in your home, especially by sealing the ducts of your forced-air heating and cooling system, is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve the longevity of your home and make your home more healthy and comfortable for you and your family. According to the Department of Energy, the average home has enough air leakage to add up to a two-foot-square hole – that’s like leaving a medium-sized window open 24 hours a day!
It’s important to ensure that your home has the proper amount of ventilation so it can breathe properly and ensure that the air in your home is healthy.
Once your home has been assessed and we know where the leaks are, we can seal your home properly to ensure that your home is healthy and working efficiently.
Once the cracks and leaks have been found, there are different types of products that can be used to address different types of air leaks. These include caulking, spray foam, and weather stripping for sealing smaller leaks. Rigid board insulation or similar products are also used for covering larger holes, while sheet metal and high-temperature caulk is used to close gaps around chimneys and furnace flues.
