Keep your indoor air comfortable year-round with Air Sealing with Fred F. Collis and Sons

Does your home feel drafty or cold in the winter? Are some rooms warmer or more difficult to keep dust-free in the summertime?  The problem could be outside air leaking in through tiny gaps and cracks that can contribute to home energy loss and rob you of energy dollars.

Where Does Air Leak into My Home?

Tiny — and not so tiny— gaps are a fact of life for many homes, even recently constructed ones! Some of the places where these air leaks crop up include exterior walls, attics, electrical fixtures, wire penetrations, basements, crawl spaces, windows, and doors.

When they’re added up, these air leaks can be the equivalent of leaving a window open, all year long! Needless to say, sealing these cracks is a positive step toward improving your home’s efficiency and comfort.

Does My Home Need Air Sealing?

Most homeowners notice the symptoms of air leakage, not the source. Some of the symptoms your home needs air sealing include:

  • Drafty rooms

  • Rooms that are noticeably hotter or colder than the rest of your house

  • Elevated heating and cooling bills

  • Excess dust, especially in rooms that are located below the attic

  • Moisture or mildew odors

Air Sealing: An Essential Step in the Insulation Process

Air sealing and insulation are two home performance upgrades that work better together to maximize the comfort of your Utica or Rome, NY area home. Air sealing creates a barrier that stops air from flowing through your blown-in cellulose insulation, which would reduce its effectiveness as a thermal barrier. Insulation gives your home an additional thermal barrier. Spray foam insulation is unique in that it creates both air sealing and an effective thermal barrier in a single application.

Air Sealing for Comfort, Health & Savings

Air sealing, combined with new insulation installed by the pros at Fred F Collis & Sons, is a home improvement that delivers a big return on your investment in home comfort. The benefits of air sealing include:

  • Improved indoor air quality

  • Less dust and allergens

  • Lower heating and cooling bills

  • More balanced temperatures throughout your home

  • Extended HVAC life because of reduced loads

  • Maximum insulation performance
