Air Sealing

Air leaks can cost you hundreds of dollars in lost energy. Air sealing and other insulation solutions can increase your home's energy efficiency and comfort.
How Air Sealing Helps

Are you pulling your hair out over your heating and cooling costs? When you stand in a specific spot in your home, do you feel a draft? Air leakage or infiltration occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings, and can cost homeowners in heating and cooling costs.

 

Properly air sealing these vulnerable spots in your home can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, particularly in the cold winter months in Eau Claire, and create a healthier indoor environment.

 

Air leakage does not work as ventilation because the air flow can’t be controlled. When the weather is cold and windy, too much air often enters houses. By comparison, when the weather is warmer and less windy, not enough air may enter, causing poor indoor air quality. Air infiltration can also cause problems with moisture, mold, and dusty air. The best strategy is to reduce air leakage as much as possible and to provide controlled ventilation for air flow.

Common Trouble Spots

We often see air leaks in the same spots throughout Eau Claire homes. These trouble spots include attics, shafts for piping or ducts, dropped ceilings, fireplace walls, windows and doors, and more. Air sealing is the perfect solution for these spaces, and will dramatically reduce air leaks, lowering your energy bill.
