Air SealingWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions Air Sealing Check for Fans and Vents, Electric Outlets, Floors, Walls, and Ceiling, Ducts, Fireplace, Plumbing Penetrations, Doors and Windows

Cracks, gaps, holes and other openings in the structure of your home are the leading cause of energy waste and high home energy bills. These leaks, usually the result of ill-fitted joints, insufficient insulation, poorly installed windows, doors and other materials used during the construction process, allow drafts and moisture to enter the home year-round, and reduce indoor comfort and efficiency.

Air leaks created by gaps, cracks, and other often-unseen openings in the structure of your home are the Number 1 cause of energy waste in homes throughout the nation. In fact, the EPA estimates that homeowners can typically save up to 20% of heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% of total energy costs) by air sealing their homes, and installing or adding insulation in their attics, crawl spaces, and basements.

In the process of the home energy audit, your auditor will identify and record the locations of all “air intervention” sources — windows and doors, switch plates and outlet covers, recessed lighting fixtures, attic access doors, vents, basement, crawlspace and other areas and sources.

Sealing or replacing leaky ductwork can also go a long way toward stemming energy loss, another source of high home-energy bills. Your auditor can 
use of an infrared camera — thermographic inspection pinpoint air leaks in ducts, doors and windows and other areas of your home.

To seal leaks in the various parts of your home, Franzoso uses an up-to-date variety of sealants, foams, dense-packed cellulose, eShield and other barrier insulations and technologies to improve and maintain higher indoor air quality, reduce airborne pollutants and allergens, and save energy costs.
