Air Sealing 101

Frequently people wonder, “What is air sealing and why does my home need it?” Air escapes through small gaps and holes in various places throughout your home, causing your HVAC unit to work overtime to keep your home at an optimal temperature year-round. Air sealing fills in those gaps.

Several areas of your home can be air sealed such as attics, basements, and crawl spaces. Combining house sealing with insulation in these areas is a winning, money-saving combination. Also, depending on the location, air sealing and insulation can sometimes be done with one product.

Improving and Weatherizing Windows and Doors

In addition to sealing penetration points in a home, old or poorly installed windows and doors are notorious for having air leaks. Improving poorly performing doors and windows is an important part of energy efficiency. The Hayes Company is experienced at improving and weatherizing windows and doors through a variety of air sealing techniques and methods in both repair and replacement. Regardless of the method employed, our installers make air sealing windows and doors correctly the first time their top priority.

Window Repair

Costly replacement is not your only option for underperforming windows and doors. Consider weatherstripping and window trim sealing as viable options for air sealing windows. Our knowledge of properly placed weatherstripping and common air leakage points for sealing can improve your windows and doors and save you thousands of dollars.

Weatherstripping

Windows have weatherstripping at connection points such as the jambs and sashes. Doors have weatherstripping at the frame. If this has worn down or the frame of the window or door is no longer square at the corners, you can have issues opening and closing them as well as drafts.

Window Trim Sealing

Many times, shortcuts have been taken in window installation and time was not taken to foam the rough opening around doors and windows. If this step has been skipped, air can leak in and out of the home from around the trim pieces. Our expert team will air seal these trouble spots for you.

Air Sealing FAQs

Yes, it is very important to air seal your attic. Fibrous insulations such as fiberglass and cellulose are not air barriers and will not seal air leaks. While they do provide thermal protection, they allow air to pass through. This results in air leaks and increased energy usage. Sealing attic air leaks with air sealing stops the escape of air from your home.
