Touchdown! Our Air Sealing Secrets Revealed
Before diving into tactics to air seal your home or buildings, we recommend testing spaces for airtightness.
This can help prioritize your time and these methods. Inspect windows, doors, plumbing, wiring, and any areas that are exposed to the outdoors.
Embrace the power of caulking! To mitigate leaks in your doors, windows, plumbing, ducting or electrical wiring coming through walls, floors, ceilings, and soffits over cabinets, caulk around the openings.
Install foam gaskets behind outlets and switches on walls. This can be a reinforcement for air leak prevention, and it is a quick fix.
Inspect your insulation for dirty spots and mold. If there are no large surface areas, give us a call. However, if they are manageable, seal leaks with low-expansion spray foam made for this purpose and install house flashing if needed. You can also use the foam sealant on more significant gaps around windows, baseboards, and other places leaking out if they are too large for caulking.

Overall, one of the best things to be weatherproof is to make sure your home is not leaking out the air you are paying for to keep it warm. It is crucial to assess how airtight your home is annually to improve your energy efficiency and save money in the process. Plus, it protects your home from the elements. When not addressed for a long duration, you can cause more significant concerns, but doing it annually can help to make maintenance more affordable. That's what we like to call a "touchdown"!
