Many homeowners in the Pioneer Valley area find themselves constantly trying to improve their home’s energy efficiency. Whether it’s through reducing light and water usage, installing Energy Star certified appliances, or any one of the countless other ways to “go green,” today’s homeowners care about their impact on the environment. They also want to save on their monthly energy bills. That’s where our air sealing and insulation services come in.
Boosting Insulation Performance with Air Sealing
It’s a well known fact that insulation can help keep conditioned air within the home, thus improving home performance and fostering a more energy-efficient environment for you and your family. What often goes overlooked, though, is that there are ways to boost the performance of your insulation, and air sealing sits at the top of the list.
Because of the way that houses are built, there are various cracks and air leaks in susceptible areas, which will inevitably lead to conditioned air escaping the home no matter how good your insulation is. Air sealing works to fill these small cracks and holes so that air no longer has an escape route. It’s like adding a protective coat to your insulation — think of it as the windbreaker of home performance.
The Benefits of Combining Air Sealing and Insulation
While air sealing and insulation are both effective tools for improving a home’s energy efficiency on their own, they really shine when they’re allowed to work in tandem with one another. The benefits of combining air sealing and insulation are numerous, including the following:
- Reduced energy costs
- Improved home comfort
- Enhanced home performance
- Better indoor air quality
- Increased heating and cooling systems efficiency
Your home is a complex set of systems, and when one area begins to suffer, the rest will also. Air sealing is the icing on the cake when it comes to keeping conditioned air inside the home, and it’s an easy fix that all Western Mass home and business owners can benefit from making.
