Air Sealing a Drafty Home Can Save You Money

Make your home healthier & more energy efficient.

Have you ever lived in a home that is drafty, has irregular temperatures, and high energy bills? These symptoms are common for homes with poor building envelopes, or, in other words, “leaky homes.”

Air leakage or infiltration occurs when outside air enters a house through cracks, gaps, and openings in your home. Homes with higher air leaks are significantly less energy-efficient than those that are well-sealed. Poorly sealed homes often require larger HVAC systems that must run more frequently to compensate for the air leakage.

In addition, uncontrolled air leakage can also provide a vehicle for unwanted moisture, dust, allergens, pest, and other contaminants to enter your home, which will negatively impact your indoor air quality.

Luckily, 3e Insulation provides air sealing services that are proven to stop air leaks and help builders meet Energy Star, and passive house requirements.
