Air Sealing

Reduce drafts, dust, and improve your home’s energy efficiency

Air Sealing

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.

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 and electrical penetrations, etc.]. Our team will then quickly and efficiently seal all these problem areas.

What Are The Benefits Of Air Sealing My Home?

Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your home are a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve durability, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment.

Air leakage occurs when outside air enters and expensive conditioned air leaves your house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. During cold or windy weather, too much air may enter the house. When it’s warmer and less windy, not enough air may enter, which can result in poor indoor air quality. Air leakage can also contribute to moisture problems that can affect occupants’ health and the structure’s durability. An added benefit is that sealing cracks and openings reduces drafts and dust, and improves overall comfort.

Benefits of Air Sealing:

  • Improved Comfort. Drafts felt during the winter are often the result of unsealed cracks and holes. Sealing homes tightly typically results in fewer drafts and less noise.
  • Lower Utility Bills. Air leakage and improperly installed insulation can waste 20 percent or more of the energy used to heat or cool a home. With effective air sealing and insulation, heating and cooling systems will not need to work as hard.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality. A tighter home envelope reduces the amount of humidity, dust, pollen, and pests that can enter the home and helps improve indoor air quality.
  • Increased Durability. When warm air leaks through a home’s floors, walls, and attic, it can come in contact with cooler surfaces where condensation can occur. Moisture that occurs in these construction assemblies encourages mold growth, ruins insulation, and even compromises the structural elements of the home. Reducing air leakage helps minimize moisture problems and increase the home’s durability.

How Much Does Air Sealing Cost?

The cost to air seal your home will depend on the overall conditioned square footage, and the number of windows, doors, and attic penetrations. Our whole-house air sealing services are the perfect complement to our duct testing and sealing services. By having your home and duct-work tested and properly sealed, you will realize the maximum energy savings, drastically improved comfort, and reduced dust, drafts, and potential for mold and mildew.

Depending on your electric utility, there are occasionally incentive programs that can help offset a significant portion of the cost of testing, air sealing, and duct sealing. Contact us today for more information.

How Long Does Air Sealing Take?

The amount of time it takes our technicians to properly air seal your home will depend on your overall conditioned square footage, and the number of windows, doors, attic penetrations, and plumbing / electrical penetrations. Rest assured, our team will work quickly and efficiently, but will never sacrifice quality work just to get the job finished.

    The estimate was more expensive than other companies for spray foaming our attic. However we are glad we went with Diversified Energy. The customer service was great and they answered all our questions/concerns. They really did an amazing job and I will recommend them in the future.

    Chad and Aaron arrived this afternoon to make my home more energy efficient. They arrived in a timely manner and called ahead to let me know they were on their way. These guys were respectful, friendly and knowledgeable. They explained what the did and how it would benefit my energy usage. I would highly recommend Diversified Energy because of the professionalism these two young men displayed.
