Air sealing is one of the most effective, non-­invasive ways for Greater Philadelphia area homeowners to improve home performance. Many people don’t realize that their homes are loaded with different cracks and gaps that can allow outside air to enter and conditioned air to escape, both of which can result in indoor air quality and energy efficiency issues. Combined with the proper insulation, air sealing can be the solution that puts a stop to this problem altogether.

What is Air Sealing?

Caulking Window to Seal Air

Take a moment to look around your home, and chances are you’ll discover areas in which air is able to freely move in and out of the home. Cracks and gaps can happen after years of settling, but they also exist as a product of when the home was first built—around pipes, for example. As you might expect, heat can escape through these gaps during the winter, with cool air escaping during the summer. This can run your utility bills through the roof, not to mention put a damper on home comfort.

Air sealing is the process of closing up these gaps and keeping air inside the home instead of allowing it to escape. Caulking and weatherstripping around windows and doors are examples of air sealing techniques. You can also choose to install replacement windows if you have cracked window panes or if your current windows are beginning to show signs of excessive wear. Basements and crawl spaces should also be looked at, where wire and pipe protrusions are common.
