The Art of Air Sealing

Air Sealing: The Most Important Energy Efficient Improvement

Air that leaks through your home's envelope − the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings − wastes a tremendous amount of energy and increases your utility costs. A well-sealed envelope, coupled with the right amount of insulation, can make a real difference on your utility bills.


Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems:

  • Cold Rooms

  • Freezing Floors

  • Frozen Pipes

  • Reduced noise from outside

  • Less pollen, dust and insects (or pests) entering your home

  • Better humidity control

  • Lower chance for ice dams on the roof/eves in snowy climates
