Why Air Seal and Insulate?
Save Energy and Money.
Air sealing deals with leaks through your home’s envelope − the outer walls, interior wall sill plates in your attics, windows, doors, and other openings − which wastes a lot of energy and increases your utility costs. A well-sealed envelope, coupled with the right amount of insulation, can make a real difference on your utility bills.
At Eco Insulation we offer a range of options that take care of both critical aspects – not just insulation and R-value but air sealing as well. As much as 30-40% of your heating and air conditioning cost is lost to air leaks. Spray Foam seals every crack and penetration no matter how small, DensePak cellulose and our hybrid solutions provide a cost-effective way to reduce air leaks significantly. We also provide a stand alone Air Sealing package for your home.
Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems:
- Reduced noise from outside
- Less pollen, dust and insects (or pests) entering your home
- Better humidity control
- Lower chance for ice dams on the roof/eves in snowy climates
Most Homes Will Benefit from Air Sealing.
Most homes in Canada don’t have enough insulation and have significant air leaks – even new homes can reveal some startling issues. In fact, if you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home’s envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year!
