Did you know that, according to the U.S. Department of Energy:
- 40 percent of a home’s heat loss can be caused by air leaks.
- About one-third of air enters and escapes your home through openings in ceilings, floors and walls.
- Air can carry as much as 50 pints of water through a half-inch hole in one heating season.

Do You Need Air Sealing Services?
All homes, especially older homes, have tiny holes and cracks hidden behind the walls, in the attic and more. However small they are, these holes can lead to big problems. Every wall outlet, light switch, duct vent, ceiling light or fan, plumbing pipe or bathroom fan could be a place where air is escaping from your home.
There are a few signs that indicate air leaks. Be on the lookout for:
- Drafts and uneven temperatures from room to room
- Rooms that are hard to heat
- Excessive dust
- Musty odors
- Icicles hanging from roof eaves
All of these are signs that you might have air leaks in your home.

In fact, we recommend both insulating and air sealing your home—these two services should go hand-in-hand. Air leaks can actually undermine the performance of insulation, so a home really needs to be insulated and sealed to be as energy-efficient as possible.
