Air Sealing Services
Do you feel drafts in parts of your home? Do you have that one room in your house that you just can’t seem to keep warm in the winter? You probably have an air leak and don’t even know it. These tiny (and not so tiny) gaps and cracks let outside air creep into your home, minimizing the effects of your heating/cooling systems and, more importantly, costing you energy dollars. Air sealing service can limit your air leaks and preserve your home’s comfort while reducing energy costs.

Air leaks and the gaps they come through can pop up in any home, even recently constructed ones! Some of the most common places these gaps pop up are areas of that home that see a lot of traffic and/or have seen recent work done.
- Electrical Fixtures
- Wire Penetrations
- Crawl spaces
- Exterior Walls

- Unusually drafty rooms
- Rooms that are hotter or colder than the rest of the house
- Unexplained jumps in your heating/cooling bills
- Extreme dust, especially in the rooms directly below the attic.
