Watch this video to see how air sealing and insulating your home can increase energy efficiency.
Sealing air leaks in your home is a simple, cost-effective way to lower heating and cooling costs, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment. Heat can find its way out of the home through a wide variety of gaps, cracks, and holes in all parts of the house. With our blower door test and home energy audit, we can quantify how much air is leaking out of your house and pinpoint the leaks.
From the attic to the basement, LeafGuard Gutters and Roofing of Madison can locate and seal air leaks all throughout the home. If you're interested in having us diagnose your home, call or e-mail us today! We proudly offer our services in Madison, Sun Prairie, Middleton and many areas throughout Wisconsin.
It's important to note that neither insulation or air sealing alone are enough to reduce heat flow. Air sealing should always be done before insulation is installed.
As part of our air sealing strategy, we typically air seal the attic first since this is where the most significant leakage occurs. The basement and crawl space areas are our second priority. Air sealing these spaces eliminates a major source of cold air infiltration.
Fiberglass insulation is too light to stop air leakage, however, spray foam insulation can effectively reduce air leakage. Air sealing and insulation upgrades from LeafGuard Gutters and Roofing of Madison can possibly cut your heating and cooling costs in half.
LeafGuard Gutters and Roofing of Madison technicians can perform a second blower door test when the air sealing work is done. The lower leakage rating confirms that you have a more airtight home, with enhanced energy performance, greater comfort, and lasting savings on your heating and cooling bills.
