Air SealingThe Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that up to 20-40% of the money an average American family spends on heating and cooling their home each year is wasted through uncontrolled air leakage, insufficient insulation, and failing duct work. Apple Aire understands these common problems, which is why they help homeowners recognize that air sealing and weatherization is a top priority when it comes to helping them save money and energy. Through air sealing, the use of a two-component closed-cell spray foam is used to fill gaps and fix leaks in your home that lead to energy waste. This foam is used to provide sealant throughout the home. Such locations where air leakage may be occurring and where sealant is useful include gaps and cracks around attic penetrations, plumbing, electrical components, chimneys, outlets, and more.
Other major areas of concern in a home energy audit is where air leakage may be occurring include top plates, where the interior walls connect to the attic, and basement rim joists, where the foundation connects to the floor of the home. Sealing these areas are paramount to achieving a more energy efficient home. Another way to prevent or reduce air leakage is to use weather stripping around doors and windows.
Energy Efficiency AssessmentAttic insulation is another area of concern in energy efficiency assessments where you may be losing valuable heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. Apple Aire can help you determine if your attic has the proper amount of insulation and answer questions pertaining the type and quantity of insulation you need to keep your home’s HVAC system working at optimum levels.
