air sealingDid you know that almost 50% of the average homeowner's energy bill goes toward heating and cooling? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through its ENERGY STAR® Home sealing program, has recommendations on how you can trim these costs by as much as 20%, increase the comfort of your home and protect the environment.

What is Home Sealing?

ENERGY STAR® Home sealing is a process for improving the "envelope" of the home. This includes the outer walls, ceiling, windows and floors. ENERGY STAR recommends: Adding insulation to stay comfortable during cold winter nights and hot summer days Sealing air leaks to stop drafts and get the full performance from insulation. Choosing ENERGY STAR labeled windows when replacing old windows Air leakage from cracks and gaps throughout the home can equal as much air flow as leaving a window open all year long. These leaks force the heating and cooling equipment to work harder to keep your family comfortable and your energy bills are the proof.

Home Sealing Benefits

A well-sealed and well-insulated home can improve the comfort of rooms that are too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. ENERGY STAR home sealing helps you save money and improve indoor air quality by preventing pollen, dust, and pollutants from entering the home. Also, decreasing the amount of moist air that leaks through the house can reduce mold and mildew growth on or inside walls and ceilings. Fifteen percent of all greenhouse gases, which contribute to global, 
warming, are generated from the energy used in houses nationwide. Therefore the less energy used, the less air pollution is generated
.
