Proper whole-house air sealing helps ensure the proper function of your cooling and heating equipment, reduces drafts, helps reduce dust, and improves the overall energy efficiency of your home. Our experienced technicians will run a blower door test to measure the overall air leakage, and to pinpoint the areas where the air is infiltrating the home [around windows, doors, plumbing, electrical penetrations, etc.]. Our team will then quickly and efficiently seal all these problem areas.
Through rigorous testing and proven air-sealing techniques, DE improves your family’s level of comfort in your home and has even cut some energy bills in half in the process.

Benefits Of Air Sealing Your Home
Air sealing is the process of sealing gaps and cracks in the building envelope to prevent air infiltration and exfiltration. It is an important step in improving the energy efficiency of a home and enhancing indoor air quality. The benefits of air-sealing a home include:
Energy savings: Air-sealing helps prevent conditioned air from escaping and unconditioned air from entering the home, reducing the amount of energy required to heat and cool the home. This can result in significant energy savings and lower utility bills.
Improved indoor air quality: By preventing air infiltration, air-sealing helps reduce the number of pollutants and allergens entering the home, leading to improved indoor air quality.
Increased comfort: By reducing air infiltration and exfiltration, air-sealing can help even out temperature and humidity levels throughout the home, leading to increased comfort.
Enhanced durability: Air-sealing helps prevent moisture from entering the home, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth and enhancing the durability of the building envelope.
Increased building performance: Air-sealing helps improve the overall performance of the building envelope, enhancing the energy efficiency of the home and reducing the risk of structural damage.
Overall, air sealing is an important step in improving the energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and overall performance of a home. By sealing gaps and cracks, homeowners can enjoy a more comfortable and healthy living environment while reducing energy costs and enhancing the durability of their homes.
