Air Sealing Services
Air Sealing In The Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area
Air sealing is an effective and affordable method to decrease your heating and cooling expenses. Most houses have gaps and openings in their stationary parts like doors and windows, which causes air leakage. This leakage leads to outdoor air coming in and conditioned air leaving.
Poor indoor air quality, an increase in air conditioner usage, and reduced comfort in extreme summer or winter conditions is also caused by air leaks. Air leakage can also play a part in moisture issues that could compromise the structure’s stability. Some of the solutions to this problem is sealing the leaks by caulking or weather stripping.

Methods We Use To Air Seal Your Building
Caulking is best for cracks and crevices smaller than 1/4 inch. wide. Sealant can be applied where two surfaces meet, but do not move. When caulking, different types are used for different areas of your home. For example when sealing in attic space crack filler is used of closed-cell material, similar to foam insulation. When caulking your fireplace, a heat resistant sealant is used.
Weatherstrippking is used for doors and windows. Weatherstripping consists of strips of metal foam vinyl that make a waterproof barrier between the frame of windows and doors and their parts that move
Why Insulation and Air Sealing Are Used Together
Putting insulation in your home comes later but air sealing and insulation work best when used together in conjunction. Insulation acts like a blanket, keeping warmth inside during winter and cool air during summer. Air sealing, on the other hand, acts as a windbreaker, preventing excess airflow.
If your home has extensive insulation but inadequate air sealing, the insulation won’t be as effective in preventing weather-related issues. In addition, excessive insulation without proper air sealing can lead to issues like mold and mildew buildup.
