Nowadays, we often hear about energy efficiency when it comes to home improvement projects, and rightfully so. Improving your home’s overall energy efficiency can help lower your utility bills and also reduce your carbon footprint. When we want to improve our home’s energy efficiency, the tendency is to replace old appliances or install new lighting. An even better way to boost your home’s performance, however, is with air sealing. Here’s why:
Hiring a testing and sealing company to air seal your home can greatly improve your indoor comfort. The effects will be especially noticeable if you live in an older house. An air-sealed home can keep out the heat of summer and the cold of winter, which will result in a more comfortable home environment.
Sealing air leaks, especially in your basement, crawl space and attic, will decrease moisture levels in your home. Excess moisture can cause mold and mildew problems, which can then lead to costly repairs. Sealing air leaks will also help get rid of musty smells.
Improved air quality
Indoor air quality is something many homeowners fail to think about often. You and your family might be breathing poor-quality air without knowing it. We tend to associate poor air quality with being outside, especially if you live in the city, but without a properly-sealed house, there’s nothing to stop the bad air from entering your home. Polluted air can irritate your eyes, nose and throat, cause shortness of breath and aggravate respiratory conditions like asthma. If the air leaks in your home are properly sealed, your indoor air quality will vastly improve.
