In the heat of summer, many homeowners crank up their AC systems in order to feel comfortable - this not only to leads to high energy bills, but it also creates moisture issues and elevated humidity levels. For a cooler, drier house and lower energy bills, consider upgrading your home's insulation and air sealing.

Cooling Can Be Costly

  • American homeowners spend $11 billion each year to operate their air conditioners.

  • 40% of home energy loss happens through holes and cracks in the roof, walls, and floors.

Insulation & Air Sealing Help Keep Your Home Cool

  • Insulation creates a thermal barrier around your home’s living spaces, keeping outside heat out during the summer.

  • Air sealing prevents conditioned air from escaping through holes and cracks and is important for creating an effective thermal barrier.

  • Insulation and air sealing work together. Insulation alone does not stop unwanted air infiltration, but air sealing will.

Benefits of a Well Insulated and Air-Sealed Home

  • A cooler home in the summer

  • Less need to run your AC system

  • Reduced energy consumption

  • Lower home cooling costs
