Benefits of air sealing, explained by Larry Janesky of Dr. Energy Saver.
Our Home Energy Audit will help you determine where you are losing the most energy and money, and the best ways to save energy by sealing air leaks. Air sealing attics, windows, basements and more will save money and increase the comfort in your home, eliminating drafts and rooms that bake in the summer sun.
Did you know that it's common for a home in Albany County to have the equivalent of an open window's worth of air leakage, even when all of your home's windows are shut?
Our blower door test and home energy audit can quantify how much air is leaking out of your house and pinpoint the leaks. Global Dwelling can locate and seal attic air leaks, window air leaks and more throughout the home. If you're interested in having us diagnose your home with our comprehensive Home Energy Audit and seal air leaks to improve home comfort, call or e-mail us today!

Understanding the "Stack Effect" As warm air rises, it moves up through the attic, passing through dozens of cracks and exposed openings. As this air is lost, new air is pulled in from the crawl space, basement, and outside, only to be heated again and lost again.
Joints = Air Leaks Small gaps often exist where one part of your house connects to another. Wood can shrink, materials can expand and contract at different rates, and connections can come loose. Leakage points can form all over -- ones that should be sealed to save you money.
Insulating Before Air Sealing If you insulate without air sealing the surface first, the air will just leak right through the insulation! Many types of insulation do not stop air flow! To make matters worse, now all the air leaks are buried underneath all the insulation, making them harder to reach. Air sealing should always be done before insulation is installed! Global Dwelling provides both air sealing and insulation services.
Contractors Create Air Leaks Electricians, HVAC contractors, and plumbers will drill and saw their way through floors, walls and ceilings, creating channels for the wires, heating ducts, water lines, and waste pipes that need to be run throughout the house. This results in a network of leakage points that can let air move in and out.
Air leaks at receptacles. Air leaks through plumbing chases.
Air leaks through ill-fitting soffits.
