Air sealing is the process of identifying and sealing any leaks or gaps in your home’s building envelope that can allow air to escape or enter your living spaces. These leaks are typically found in areas such as windows and doors, attics, basements, and crawlspaces.
By sealing these leaks, you can prevent unwanted air infiltration or exfiltration, which can help to improve your home’s energy efficiency, reduce your heating and cooling costs, and enhance your indoor air quality. This can also help to improve your overall comfort and reduce drafts and cold spots in your home.
During the air sealing process, a professional energy auditor or contractor will use specialized equipment such as a blower door test and thermal imaging cameras to identify air leaks in your home. They will then use a variety of materials such as caulk, weatherstripping, and insulation to seal these leaks.
Overall, air sealing is an essential step toward creating a more comfortable and energy-efficient home. By reducing air leakage and increasing insulation, homeowners can lower their energy bills, reduce their carbon footprint, and enjoy a more comfortable living environment.
