Drafty Home? Seal those Leaks!

Many Greenville, SC homeowners find themselves dealing with drafty rooms year after year. Even though the weather stays relatively warm in South Carolina throughout much of the year, no one deserves to have to deal with an unwanted breeze moving through their home. What’s the solution? Air seal your home and stop the drafts for good!

What is Air Sealing?

Many homes throughout Greenville are loaded with tiny cracks and gaps, the majority of which usually go overlooked. As one might expect, these breaks in the building envelope can allow outside air to enter the home and inside, conditioned air to escape. Air sealing is the process of filling these tiny cracks and gaps so that unwanted airflow no longer occurs. It is performed by a home performance contractor who takes a close look at the entire home envelope to isolate any areas that may be causing problems, and it’s one of the most important steps towards enhanced home performance.

Problems Associated with Leaky Homes

While it makes sense that leaky homes are less than ideal, many people don’t realize just how problematic they can be. Leaky homes are often plagued by poor indoor air quality, for example, especially if air is allowed to move through contaminated areas such as crawlspaces and then into the home’s living spaces. They’re also far less efficient than homes with tight building envelopes, leading to a larger carbon footprint and excess wear and tear on your heating and cooling systems.

You may not know it, but inefficient homes are also characterized by reduced resale value. Obviously, something has to be done.

Hey Dean! I wanted to let you know that the insulation in the room over our garage is working great! It was 87 degrees outside today, and the thermometer we had in the room read an arctic 71 degrees -- right where my wife likes it. Thanks so much!
