Air Sealing Can Help Optimize the Energy Efficiency of Your Portage, WI, Home
Insulating your home is essential for improving your energy efficiency. You probably knew that. What you may not know is that tiny gaps, holes, and cracks in your home’s walls and ceiling let air flow in and out of your home. Air sealing is a simple and affordable way to lower your heating and cooling bills and get the maximum benefit from your home’s insulation. Larson Home Services can discover and seal the air leaks in your Portage, WI, home to make it more efficient and help you lower those energy bills.
Benefits of Air Sealing Your Home
If you have insulation, why do you need air sealing? Insulation adds a protective layer to your home but doesn’t necessarily stop air from moving through cracks and holes. Some areas where leaks are commonly found include:
- Holes for plumbing and wiring through floors, walls, and ceilings
- Around electrical outlets and switches
- Attic access hatches, drop-down stairs, and doors
- Around recessed lights and fans
- Around windows and exterior doors
- Cracks, gaps, and holes in drywall or plaster
- Around chimney passes
- Bath fans
- Leaky basement windows
- Rim joists in the basement or crawl space
By sealing up these cracks and holes, your home will be air-tight and you’ll see immediate benefits such as reduced energy bills, improved air quality, and peace of mind that your home is energy-efficient and eco-friendly.
