With all of the different areas, systems, and materials that make up a home’s construction, it is all too common for homeowners to neglect the fact that there are hidden cracks and gaps undermining the comfort, efficiency, and overall health of their homes.
Educating homeowners on the importance of air sealing and weatherization is one of the reasons Mass Energy Experts performs no-cost home energy assessments via the Mass Save Program. But in addition to informing homeowners throughout Eastern Massachusetts including Woburn, Revere, Quincy, Weymouth Town, and Somerset of their home’s energy efficiency, we are also a Mass Save air sealing contractor!
Air Sealing Your Home
Through the same home energy assessment, Mass Energy Experts can determine the total amount of air leakage in your home, and then locate and fill those holes for good. We do this by testing for the entire amount of leakage present using a blower door test, then we can pinpoint the exact location of each leak using infrared imaging. From there, our Mass Energy Expert technicians seal up those leaks using an expanding spray foam material that will stop outside air from infiltrating and keep your conditioned, indoor air inside.
Combining Air Sealing + Insulation
The insulation in your attic, crawlspace, and walls is supposed to stop the transfer of heat through the materials that make up your home, but if there are holes and gaps throughout the construction that are allowing air to freely move in and out, your insulation will only have a minimal impact on your home comfort and overall energy efficiency. This is where professional air sealing comes in! When you combine proper insulation and air sealing, you can see a number of year-round benefits for your home — such as:
- Lower heating & cooling costs
- Increased indoor air quality (less outdoor contaminants)
- Reliable indoor temperatures
- Longer lasting heating and cooling equipment (less wear & tear)
