Make your home airtight against energy loss
Sources of Air Leakage
WHERE ARE THE LEAKS?
Sources of air leakage are an artifact of normal home construction. Thousands of pieces from big to small are joined together in assembly, and where they meet likely has some clearance space around the joint. By the time the house is complete, there are leakage points all over the place.
As much as 20% of the energy is lost in process due to leaks in the ducts, causing HVAC systems to work harder to generate the desired heating or cooling. By insulating ducts, not only will energy bills be reduced, but conditioned air will be more effectively distributed throughout the house.
Good things come of air sealing
When you make the home airtight many good things then happen
Lower Utility Bills
Air leaks can be responsible for wasting significant energy, so by sealing them up you’ll be looking at significant savings. Get ready to enjoy lower energy bills.
Air leaks are the source of drafts in a home. So sealing up those cracks and holes will make rooms cozy again to be in.
Improved air quality
When the home is sealed up and airtight, the home is less vulnerable to air born pathogens, humidity, dust, pests, and other unwelcomed outsiders.
Moisture can pose serious harm by leading to mold, ruining insulation, and potentially compromising the structural integrity of the home. With an air sealed home the threat of moisture will be reduced.
