Air Sealing and Insulation Make a Potent Combination
We Air Seal Your Connecticut Home to Reduce your Energy Bills and Improve your Comfort
The winters are extremely cold in Connecticut with chilly winds and freezing temperatures. If the outside air leaks into your home, it results in drafty rooms and discomfort.
Furthermore, if the conditioned air of your heating and cooling systems leak out of your home, it results in higher energy costs. Home air sealing can help.
Did you know that air leakage can result in around 40% of energy loss in a home? Sealing up the air leaks, holes cracks, and gaps can increase your home comfort and reduce your year-round energy bills. The experts at Green Apple Spray Foam offer home air sealing services in several towns around the Connecticut shoreline.
We air seal all of your home’s leaky places to ensure maximum energy efficiency. Additionally, we use a variety of air sealing products, such as caulk, spray foam, and stiff foam to complete the job. Certain materials are better suited to specific places or trouble spots. We choose the right products to use in critical areas such as attics and external doors, which are the primary cause of energy loss.

How do We Air Seal?
Caulking around windows
It is a technique we employ to seal air leaks in stationary sections of your property caused by cracks or gaps.
This technique is used to air seal doors and windows. There are different types of weatherstripping. Depending on your location and particular situation, we can choose the right type of weatherstripping to air seal your home. .
Foam Air Sealing
By combining foam air sealing with cellulose insulation, we can align your thermal and pressure boundaries, resulting in a more efficient energy saving.
Why Air Sealing is Important?
Many homes have two or three times the amount of air leakage recommended for maximum energy efficiency and indoor air quality. This means that you’re constantly losing air that you just paid to heat, cool, or dehumidify and replacing it with outside air that needs to be heated, cooled, or dehumidified if you have significant air leakage.
Installing air sealing can help in a variety of ways:
Achieving even temperatures
Having a more comfortable and energy-efficient home
Possible energy tax credits
Reduces drafts in your home
Improving indoor air quality
Better performance of the HVAC system
Lower energy bills
Fewer condensation problems
Where do we Air Seal?
Air sealing is used around structures that cannot be insulated. An air sealing contractor mainly focuses on attic air sealing, rim joists, top plates, wall studs, the exterior wall, and around the water heater. Without air sealing, your insulation fails to perform effectively.
Here are some of the locations where air leakage occurs in a typical house:
Penetrations in the floors, walls, and ceilings for plumbing and electrical wires.
Around chimney penetrations.
Attic access hatches, doors, and drop-down steps.
Windows and outside doors.
Holes in plaster or drywall.
Outlets and switches, particularly on outside walls.
Gaps around window and door trim and baseboard moldings
Dropped ceilings above baths and cabinetry
Around windows in basement
Signs That You Need Air Sealing
Your rooms are overly drafty
The temperature of your home feels uncomfortable or fluctuates
Your energy bills are higher than normal
Dust, mildew or mold in your home
There are water leaks in the attic
Overworking HVAC system
No, they are not. Air sealing and insulation often go hand in hand, but they are not the same thing. Remember, insulation prevents heat from escaping your home in the winter and penetrating in the summer, but it does not prevent the flow of air. Air sealing prevents the flow of cold air from penetrating into your home.
In a typical US home, air sealing can result up to a 25% reduction in total air infiltration. This means a significant decrease in energy bills and improved comfort.
When it comes to energy efficiency, air sealing is more important than insulation. Air sealing eliminates air leakage points and is typically performed prior to the installation of insulation. Both strategies, when used in conjunction, can help make your home even greener.
Foam sealant can be used to fill bigger gaps around windows, baseboards, and other areas from where the air can escape. Ensure that your dryer vent is not clogged. This will conserve electricity as well as avert a fire. It is also important to replace the bottoms and thresholds of outside doors with flexible sealing gaskets.
