Have Allergies? Air Sealing Can Help!
Did you know that air sealing your home can help reduce allergy symptoms? As a home naturally breathes, outside air is pulled into the home through penetration points. These points exist around the home’s shell – around windows, HVAC venting, can lights, chimneys and more. This natural process pulls pollen and other outside pollutants into the home, directly into the air you breathe.
Air sealing your home helps keep outside air (and outside pollutants) out of your home. In addition reducing pollutants in the home, air sealing can create a more comfortable living environment year round. By keeping unconditioned air outside the home, drafts are reduced and a home’s internal temperature is more easily maintained. This makes the home more comfortable and also reduces energy bills!
Air sealing should be done by a professional – whether you are sealing a new home or an existing home. There are many penetration points in a home’s exterior that the eye can’t see – comprehensive air sealing by a professional will help ensure your home is completely and properly sealed.
