Bonnie and Clyde. Bert and Ernie. Batman and Robin. These famous duos have nothing on injection foam insulation’s partnership with air sealing. When you’re facing a remodel project, learn why air sealing and insulation go hand-in-hand.
What’s the problem?
Despite a builder’s best efforts, there are bound to be gaps and cracks around the building materials of your home – especially as it settles and ages. Along the wall and ceiling joints, around window frames, where plumbing protrusions enter the home – and more – there are tiny cracks that let air enter the home.
Too many cracks and gaps can equal leaving a window open in the dead of window. Imagine the effect on your comfort with an open window. That’s what these tiny cracks are doing to your home. With professional air sealing services, your home can be tightly sealed against this air loss, putting a stop to reckless, needless energy loss.
Insulating in isolation
Now that you’re aware of the problem that cracks cause, imagine the effect of insulating without air sealing. Insulation is a necessary feature for your home, putting a stop to heat loss through building materials. But if you didn’t also air seal alongside upgrading insulation, your home could still be susceptible to energy loss.
Using a pro
If you’re ready to upgrade your home’s insulation, be prepared to also seal the home at the same time. Professional services are a must to ensure that every crack and gap around the home is tight as a drum and to eliminate air infiltration.Talk to the experts at USA Insulation about our injection foam insulation and air sealing services.
