Home sealing services, also known as air sealing, involve identifying and sealing air leaks in a home's envelope, including walls, attics, and basements.
Sealing air leaks reduces the amount of air that enters and exits a home, resulting in lower energy bills. Home sealing also reduces the amount of dust, pollen, and other outdoor pollutants entering the home, resulting in improved indoor air quality. Reducing drafts and cold spots helps regulate indoor temperature, resulting in increased comfort. Reducing the amount of air entering and exiting a home, home sealing can reduce the risk of moisture damage and mold growth.
