Air Sealing Is The Key To Energy Efficiency
Air sealing is an important aspect of home energy efficiency. Air leaks can occur throughout your home, particularly around windows and doors, in the attic, and in the ductwork. All of these factors contribute to higher energy bills, decreased indoor air quality, and increased wear and tear on HVAC systems.
When air leaks occur, conditioned air can escape the home, while unconditioned air from outside can enter, which causes the temperature to fluctuate. HVAC systems have to work harder to keep the temperature where it should be. It can also help homeowners save money on their energy bills by reducing energy waste and improving the overall efficiency of their homes.
Additionally, air sealing can also improve indoor air quality by reducing the number of outside pollutants that enter the home through air leaks. Overall, air sealing is an important step for homeowners to take in order to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of their homes.
