Air sealing, or whole home air sealing, is a service that provides energy-efficient home upgrades that every homeowner should be aware of. Air sealing is completed in the attic, crawl space, basement, around windows and doors, and many more areas of your home that are a large source of not only drafts but a source of energy loss and higher utility bills. Did you know that according to ENERGY STAR®, air leakage accounts for between 25 percent and 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling in a typical residence?

Air leaks are not uncommon

When it comes to air leaks, the problem is unfortunately widespread and certainly not isolated. The reason that air leaks occur in homes is that the majority of homes are under-insulated and, since your home was originally built, standards (codes and regulations) have come a long way meaning your home probably isn’t up to code. In fact, even new homes can have air leaks that cost you thousands over the years. Each corner, joint, wall, or door has the potential for losing energy through a lack of sealing.

This means that in the summer, warm air will find a way in, and in the winter, cold air will do the same. With this perpetual cycle, you could be paying close to double what you actually would need to pay for your heating and cooling if your home were sealed properly for energy conservation. Fortunately for you, Comfort 1st Insulation specializes in identifying these areas of inefficiency and fixing them through innovative and time-tested methods.

Signs, symptoms, and the most commonly affected locations

When it comes to air leaks, there are certain areas in the home that are more affected than others. The most common sources of air leaks come from:

  • Holes made for plumbing and wiring
  • Chimney holes
  • Access spots for the attic
  • Doors without proper sealing
  • Electrical outlets on exterior walls
  • Basement windows
  • And many more

If you feel that your home is leaking energy or you simply want to find out, keep an eye out for these strong signals that your home’s inefficiency is costing you money.

  • Unusually high energy consumption
  • Frequent drafts throughout the home
  • Temperature fluctuations throughout upstairs and downstairs rooms
  • Ice dams in the winter
  • Dry indoor air in the winter
  • Your heating/cooling system never shuts off

Basically, your home is full of locations that can cost you money on a daily basis. We’ll help to find those areas, test them for efficiency, and improve them, saving you thousands of dollars and making your home more energy-efficient.
