When it comes to making your home in New Jersey more energy efficient, you might think of upgrading to ENERGY STAR certified appliances and switching to LED light bulbs. But did you know there is a more effective, more affordable way to save energy and lower your utility bills?
Make Your NJ Home More Efficient with Air Sealing
Air sealing closes up holes, gaps, and cracks throughout your home around windows, doors, plumbing penetrations, recessed lighting, the attic hatch, and more. These small air leaks may seem inconsequential, but when left unsealed, they allow outside air to enter your home and valuable, conditioned air to escape — all year long.
When done properly by an experienced professional, comprehensive air sealing will keep the air you pay to condition inside your home, putting less stress on your home’s heating and cooling systems and giving you lower energy bills.
Air Sealing Works Hand in Hand with Your Insulation
Home performance experts typically recommend completing air sealing together with insulation, and here’s why. When you insulate without air sealing, air is still free to enter and escape the home, causing drafts and undermining the effectiveness of your insulation. When you air seal without insulating, meanwhile, heat can still move freely into and out of the home by conduction. Air sealing creates an air barrier along the exterior of your home, while insulation creates a thermal barrier.
The Benefits of Professional Air Sealing
When combined with proper home insulation and ventilation, air sealing can offer a number of benefits, some of which you may not expect. Benefits include:
Increased home comfort
Greater energy efficiency
Lower heating & cooling bills
Longer lasting HVAC equipment
Better indoor air quality
