Air sealing and insulation go hand-in-hand
To truly reduce heat flow within your home it is best to improve your insulation and perform air sealing. To ensure the best results, air sealing should be done first. The reason for this is because insulation alone doesn’t stop air leakage from occurring, in fact it allows for air to travel through it. Air sealing is required to maximize your existing insulation’s performance and stop unconditioned air from entering your home!
When performing air sealing we start in the attic, this area is where most of the leakage occurs. Following this area, we move to the crawl space and basement. By air sealing these areas, we are able to remove major sources of cold air infiltration.
The importance of air sealing duct work
Indiana Home Comfort Solutions offers Aeroseal Duct Sealing. Aeroseal is a water-based formula that effectively seals all the holes in your air ducts and vents, making sure that air travels through your home exactly where you want it. It’s entirely safe and non-toxic. In fact, it’s made with the same ingredients that are used in baby pacifiers and chewing gum.
In the first step of the process, we block all of your vents and registers to put pressure on your system. The internal components of your furnace are also blocked off to protect them from the sealant being blown through the ductwork. By doing this, our technology is able to easily find all the cracks and holes where air is leaking. In the next step, we hook up the Aeroseal machine to measure your pre-seal air duct leakage, giving you a before and after snapshot so you are actually able to see in real time the benefits of using Aeroseal to seal your ducts!
You’ll start to notice the benefits of air sealing almost immediately! This not only takes pressure off your hvac system but also decreases energy consumption and can save up to 30% on energy bills. It will take a couple of months for these benefits to show up on your energy bills. But once they do, you’ll have relief knowing that precious air you paid to heat/cool your home is doing just that, heating/cooling your home.
